Don't forget innovative paint shops like TAOD, Mitcher T, etc. and vinyl graphics shops that are starting to catch on now.

Oh yeah, turbine engines!

I'll agree that some of the paint/graphics work has come a long way, but I think in a few short years your going to see it become a little more subtle - it's already going that direction, look at Gino's boat - incredible detail, but it's a whisper, not a scream.
In a few years, the loud paint will look the same as the Teal/Pink combos from the '80's does today.
Just my Opinionion.

That is great info....I love learning about stuff like this. Thanks for the post!
