Automotive Rewind: The Wildest Rust-Wrapped Cars

⚡️ 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.

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?

This Porsche actually looks pretty sick, while not going over the edge, well, not as much as a rust wrap could. The project, called #PaintisDead, combines Martini livery with a rust wrap, giving it a well-raced look.

This isn't necessarily a rust wrap, because there doesn't appear to be any simulated rust on it, but more so a Mustang project car wrap. It looks like bad paint, went worse, and you know there's, ironically, a perfect paint job underneath the paint-faded and matte primer wrap.

This battered 'Bee looks like it comes out of a war zone, or what modern society knows as '2020'. Even though this Camaro Z/28 isn't a 2020 year model, it captures the essence of the past few months, and still looks sorta cool.
