    Wow .... http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Headlight-Eyelashes-Accessory-Roadster/dp/B00BGYYBWM/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1361882906&sr=8-9&keywords=tesla+model+s

    I was just doing a random search for Tesla Model S on amazon.com and that came up - LOL. the product name has tesla model S in it, but unfortunately none of the photos have those on a Model S (thank god), as its a universal product and applies to all vehicles. but anywho, I can't imagine anyone that would want to drive around with those on their car unless it was for some specific reason (like a converted car dressed up to be in a parade). I hope someone doesn't go put that on their Model S. Just had to post it. ;)

    I actually saw a (crappy) car with these on it. Looked totally weird. Definitely a kid thing.

    I was at the (Canadian) DMV yesterday renewing my tags and there was a Volkswagen Beetle with these on them parked right next to me. Personally, I'd be embarrassed...

    For some real automotive weirdness, check out CNET's LOL Cars

    This thread would not be complete without a nod to the Chicken Car that roams the streets in Santa Monica ...

    So do you have any difficulty deciding which car to drive when cruising around town, your roadster or your Chicken Car?

    You have me confused with the guy who looks like Borak. My hair is a different color.

    I have seen these in the wild (on a VW Bug). I think of them as the female version of 'truck nuts' ...

    I've seen these in embarrassing numbers in the UK. One of the reasons I no longer live there. :)

    I was at Costco in Oakbrook yesterday when my son spotted this beauty in the parking lot. He said to me "Dad, I think they put eyelashes on that Tesla." I had to turn around and take a second look...and a picture. I figured people on TMC would appreciate it. Please, I hope nobody on TMC did this to their Model S.

    Talk about customization! Not for me, but to each his/her own. If a guy put this on his Model S, may be he just broke up with his girlfriend so the Model S is at least temporarily taking the place of his ex?

    I think the purchase contract says that you immediately forfeit your rights to the car for doing something like that....

    Please don't double post. It just creates duplicate discussions, confusion for members, and work for the mods.

    P.S. Threads merged.

    So nobody remembers what Sergey Brin (Google) did to his Tesla for April Fools day 2013?
    Here is a reminder.:biggrin:

    That is hard to believe. Some fellow Ggoglers paid to have Brin's car wrapped and somehow affixed those rear "wings" to it and modified the wheels (are those "snap on" rims?) as a prank? That would cost thousands. Those Googlers have too much money...
