Default To paint a truck...

I was wondering if there is an inexpensive way to paint a vehicle. I have an air compressor but it is a 6 gallon and only about 3 cfm at 90 psi. I don't believe this is going to be enough to run a paint gun and high cfm compressors are out of my price range. I've been trying to watch craigslist for something cheaper but the ones I do find, are gone before I can even respond to the ads. Is there a "work around" for this? Either a spray gun that would work with my compressor or somehow setup a secondary tank?

Thanks for any help on this
