Default Carlashes

Just had a look on Yahoo about an article related to carlashes. This seems to be a new form of accessory for the cars !

The idea originated from the cartoons showing automobiles or other materials as living creature. Bob the builder, I guess is one of such cartoon.

The lashses seem to be cute, for a delicate car like this:

However, there are pics on net, showing lashes for Jeep also ! Does'nt look that great for a masculine vehicle

One more pic I downloaded from net showing lashes for a luxury car [BMW], but not looking that good

Dont know if this accessory is yet available in India, definitely a good looking feature on a car, which is small & delicate, preferably driven by a girl !

Interesting find though

Judging by these, winking headlamps are next in line.

They really need to keep the animation world far away from the real world. This thing looks bad. Or were they having some kind of Car fancy dress competition?

what a Eco-friendly Idea sir ji.

anyway it can look ok once in a while like going to a party etc, but car with regular such make up would certainly look awkward.

It looks plain boring for me and it do spoil the beauty of the car.But, VW Beetle is an exception.

Unlike me, my 6 yr old brother love those eye lashes,especially the one on that White VW Beetle.Currently he is forcing my father to buy those eye lashes for our Fiat Grande Punto

There must be some lashes with white or bright colors for dark colored cars

Winking will avoid the driver to do dipper at the night, nice thought

Fancy dress competition is a good idea to do !

Must plan such competitions in next T-bhp meets, what say ?

The people who have bullet hole stickers and dogs apparently peering out from under the boot --- obviously!

Good for ten seconds of laughter and then forgetting.
