⚡️ Read the full article on Motorious

Call it nostalgia, or confusion, Motorious revisits this strange trend.

Rust wrapping, and wrapping in general, is a trend that had some major steam for a few years around 2014. Some of the wraps from this era look like the car had been through a war zone, carrying some stories under the hood, while others look all they carry is a high-risk of tetanus. While we ponder what may have happened to these wraps by now, check out some mild to wild rust-wrapped cars.

Patina Hellcat Vinyl Wrap

What do you do when you have a 707-horsepower Challenger Hellcat? Probably not patina wrap it, unless you’re the owner of this blown Dodge. The last time this kitty was spotted, it was up for sale through $49,000, we wonder where it is now?

Aston Martin Vantage Gets A Nose Job From Revenant Automotive

Nose jobs aren’t for everyone, but the Vantage seems to be taking it quite nicely.

Let’s talk about car grilles. In the previous decade, grilles have become bigger and bigger, to the point that almost every car brand has already joined the bandwagon. We’re not entirely sure who started this trend, but Lexus and Audi are among the early adapters.

And of course, the most recent car (and most popular) to join the fray is the new BMW 4 Series with its gigantic vertical kidney grille – whether you love or hate the new 4er grille is beyond us.

Even the British luxury carmaker, Aston Martin, has joined this big mouth trend with the Vantage in 2018. It wasn’t that offensive, though, as the low-slung but wide grille was integrated into the bumper, which made it look subtler than, let’s say Lexus grilles.

The King is well-known for his love of cars. It’s said that he owned somewhere around 200 cars in his lifetime, and Cadillacs had a special place in his heart. Although, the most interesting of his cars might be the 1971 De Tomaso Pantera that he shot in the steering wheel when it wouldn’t start for him. If you ever find yourself in Memphis, you can visit 20 of his cars on display at the Elvis Presley Auto Museum.
