    just one of those conversation starters...
    i think it says alot about someone's personality and itll make us more aware of whats out there.
    my personal favorite would have to be the white ns hoppers or yellow ttx gondolas. both are smooth and light and allow for maximum coverage and bright ass colors. not much traffic on those types, but its the best of what i have to choose from.
    just wondering...

    BOXCARS mmmmmmm yeah old ass rusty ones with some company you never heard off on it, or those smooth mammoth boxcars, oh and holly rollers are mad sweet. but any smooth boxcar is excellent even a ridged one is cool.
    h and those boxcars that are lower to the ground than most. fuck remember all the companies names.

    I stick to the barnum and bailey's circus world train. it's all about the lion's cages and the cars for the giraffes, they got a real nice panel. nah...nothing says hit me like ANY car hittable in the day. I did 40 CP and GONX gondolas this year so far...I also like baex flats, although I've never hit one.

    damn thats cool as shit to see dudes that want to paint hoppers, gondolas and grainers and coalies...... i should hook up with you guys. there is a yard about 45 minutes from me that is MOSTLY hoppers, grainers etc... but it is probably the chillest spot i have ever seen for a yard. and no one will paint them with me cause "its hoppers and grainers."
    but i reality i like to hit golden west flats the best, or any UP, golden west... etc.. fridgie car. those cars travel the farthest from me, are nice and i generally can find them pretty easy around here at a few spots.
    i also like those double long flat cars i have seen CN's and CV's they were insulated and real nice.
    White flats rock the best though Tropicanas are my fav to paint, but they get buffed, Cryotrans rock too... but tropicanas are hard as shit to find. around here they only stop for 15 minutes at a time then keep on getting it.
    but overall like someone said any old boxcar daytime preferably, that moves.
