Unlike other auto shows in the world, the SEMA auto show is one of the few that celebrates the art of car customizations and fine tuning. This year’s event has so far lived up to the hype with a number of specially-customized vehicles taking center stage.
Then again, SEMA wouldn’t be complete with some rather amusing cars that catch everyone’s attention for reasons that have nothing to do with vehicle itself. This year, a late 80’s Chevy Impala /Caprice was on display and it had a very unlikely - yet extremely amusing– paintjob: SpongeBob Squarepants and friends. The whole depiction of SpongeBob and gang was really intricately done and what’s even better is the fact that pretty the much the whole cast of characters could be found in the Caprice. Too match the SpongeBob’s yellow skin, the Caprice’s hardtop roof, as well as the front grilles, the linings on the front and rear of the bumper, and the wheels were all given the yellow treatment.
You can just imagine taking your kid in school with this car. You’ll become all
of his friends’ hero.
