I've said in the past that I'm not a fan of the warbonnet scheme. I don't hate it or even dislike it, I just don't particularly like it. It's the most popular paint scheme ever but just doesn't do anything for me. That said, the plated sides totally change these engines IMHO. The red and shiny plated sides really make this paint scheme pop. It goes from blah to wow for me. I guess that it goes from wow to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious for just about everyone else! It makes these maybe the best looking engines ever except for the Southern Crescent Limited green scheme.
