Cars Grow Their Own Moustaches

A giant moustache really makes a car look rugged and powerful.

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some cars come with four- wheel drive, others come with moustaches.

The ones that do are so much more “powerful,” according to Ethan Eyler, creator of the Carstache, a huge, furry, Vaudeville-style moustache that attaches to a car’s grill.

Eyler says the Carstache produces smiles, waves, and even “moustache salutes” from strangers who put their forefinger across the top of their lip in face fuzz solidarity to show their appreciation for the silly invention.

It might be because the moustached cars, in his words, “look more rugged.”

Whatever the case, a driver’s “cool factor” is immediately raised, especially if they’re also sporting a thick ‘stache themselves.

Eyler jokes, “That’s like the perfect storm.”

He dreams of getting “the most powerful moustaches out there” to endorse his product, like Burt Reynolds, John Oates and Tom Selleck.

If they aren’t available, he’d love to place a Carstache on famous cars, like Kitt from Knight Rider.
