Looked a little bit less kitchy before cleaning

Nonetheless, aesthetical improvement is huge.

Your cities are what cities should be, cultural places where people live and work. That's one of the reasons we like to come to Europe!

it's funny, because this american car culture is exactly what bring europeans to US. It's fun when you are on vacation, you feel like in rock video from the 90's
