ragnar so cal {the sparklicious swaggerwaggon}

by @according2kelly on May 15, 2012

lots of paint pen (we’re talking a couple hundreds worth), child labor provided by the entire neighborhood, & a couple of hours, resulted in the ultimate ragnar-ian vehicle…

the sparklicious swaggerwaggon

the most sparklicious van on the road from huntington beach to coronado island.

the sparklicious swaggerwaggon was the perfect mode of transportation for our team sparkle UTLRA team.

Do you know what brand of paint pens you used? and did you have any trouble washing it off??

I gotta know -because we've only ever used 4 pens total, but with less spectacular results - how many pens' worth of car ink did that take? Love it. Our Ragnar is in mid-August & I may need to clean out the nearest Office Max a few times to prepare. :)

I'm surprised to find out this was done with the help of kids! You guys parked next to us at one of the exchanges and we were very impressed!

Ah, love it! This makes me jealous. I like to run by myself, but sometimes I wish I had a group of friends who enjoyed the sport as much as I do so we could do stuff like this. Doing it by myself, well . . .that would be just pathetic :)

Paint pen washes off? I need to know more.

Too be perfectly honest, I have no idea regarding exactly HOW many. I do know I bought approximately a $100 worth of paint pens. They really go FAST! (it didn't help that our van wasn't white as we had requested!) the more paint pens, the better - for sure!

@according2kelly
@according2kelly

Hahahahaha! Yep! I enlisted the help of all the Kia in the neighborhood! We had kids as young as 5 years old painting the van into the wee hours of the night!

running is such an individual sport - that it's so much fun to run as a team! You definitely need to do a relay one of these days!

I know, I know - I just always forget to take the dang pictures! If only I had a photographer follow me around all day.

I think we loved our van, almost as much as running the race!

Fair enough. Maybe if I start shopping early (like now) I'll be able to find that range of colors, too. Thanks!

I bought them online! that made it easy! I googled car paint pens - found a place with a HUGE supply of colors!
