Model cars have long been used as a way to explore ideas for customizing full sized autos, but who knew that when you were a little too impatient, and left a big thumb print in a freshly painted hood, you were in fact exploring the cutting edge of automotive style?

For a no doubt modest fee, the good people at Porsche AG, will custom print your fingerprint right onto the hood of your brand new 911.

More details here  https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/2020/products/porsche-exclusive-manufaktur-innovative-printing-method-body-paintwork-fingerprint-911-19997.html

How soon before we see FCA respond with a Challenger Hellcat Gluebomb Edition?

At least you'll be able to PROVE that car in the impound lot is yours.

Why stop there?  Get some metal master like Chip Foose to sculpt mould lines, flash and ejector pin marks into the sheet metal.

And don't forget the swirl lines in the molded in metallic.

Begs the question of changing the hood out at the end of the lease.

I wonder if they could leave a part or two off to represent the parts I loose when I build something, lol.

Me too, I had a big fly land right in some fresh paint. He got stuck pretty bad, so I waited until he was dead and sanded him off.

There was a cartoon in MAD magazine years ago, where a guy on a construction site swatted a fly that landed on a blueprint.  When you flipped the page, there was a full-page picture of the completed skyscraper, with a huge fly splattered across it...

Okay...I'll get me 'at and coat!
