We're constantly on the hunt for new ideas in gearhead land, but with this one, we may have been a little slow on the uptake. After all, we've seen it on the Power Tour bus for like five years, not to mention on fleet vehicles, NASCAR race cars, Funny Cars, and plenty more. But it finally hit us: why not do a vinyl wrap instead of a paint job on a regular ol' street machine? We decided to investigate the pros and cons along with 13-year vinyl-wrap veteran Loren Traister of Canby Graphics, who executed the design and the wrap on the Hot Rod Mustang that Editor Rob Kinnan raced in the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge series last year. Traister also wrapped our '67 Impala for this story so we could take a closer look at the process.
