The Skittles Car in McKinney, TX

The Skittles Car in McKinney, TX

Red car with Skittles logoThis car has fascinated me over the years.  I see it parked around town, but have never had the opportunity to meet its owner.  The other day while at a traffic light I caught a glimpse of it and was able to snap a pic before the light changed. 

Why does this car have Skittles on it? 

How did this man come to own this car? 

These are questions I just want to learn the answers to!

I have a "Funny Things I've Seen Around Town" page on my website and have been wanting to add this car to my photo menagerie for a while.  I love collecting the unusual sites I see here in McKinney and around town. 


If you've seen something funny while you've been out and about, send me a pic.  I'd love to feature your photo here on my blog!

That's awesome! I wanna know too!!!! If that car were here we'd be on the lookout for it always. Maybe one day you'll get to meet the owner and find out!

I have seen several similar cars like that around Dallas; Wrigley Gum, Elmo, and Ford to name a few.

"Taste The Rainbow" Melanie!  My guess is that the owner is a NASCAR buff but other than that I wouldn't know much more.  A Mark Martin fan maybe.

It might be some kind of race car (weird choice of car for that, though) or show car (again, weird) but I'm like you - I want to know Why?

I love the Funny Things I've Seen Around Town idea. I bet it brings people to your website, doesn't it?

Melanie--that is cool.  I thought about a race car, too, since there is #6 on small window.  Maybe it is just someone's fantasy.

Love your 'funny things around town' on your website.  I will keep my eyes and ears open.
