Feel-good story: Terminally ill girl gets driven in Lambo by Richard Hammond

I know some of the RS nazis will question whether this deserves its own thread, but it's just a feel-good story - they seem to be a lot more rare these days.

Onions seem to be hiding in my room tonight

Emilia Palmer, an eight-year-old from Kimbolton, Herefordshire in England's West Midlands, suffers from a rare lung illness, requiring her to constantly be on oxygen. She made a request through Rays of Sunshine, which is like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, to get a ride in a pink Lamborghini, driven by everyone's favorite Hamster, Richard Hammond. And last Sunday, she got to do just that, escaping from her hospital just long enough to stop home and get a surprise visit.

Within days of receiving Emilia's wish, Rays of Sunshine found someone willing to donate a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, and let the charity get it resprayed in an eye-searing, matte pink. The charity also managed to get Hammond to fly in for a personal visit with Emilia.

What is "Doe"?

Anyways... you can see that it has been temporarily color changed. You wrap a car, you plastidip a car... respraying a car is changing its color permanently with paint.

Lol... that's what I get for not being specific. I was intending to say it had not been REPAINTED... ie, it was just temporarily done, as you can see all the lines, etc.
