hHOT ROD usu­ally fo­cuses on rides that have per­fect paint and in­te­rior, but in re­cent years, we’ve seen a mas­sive surge in the pop­u­lar­ity of patina at shows all across the na­tion. Viva Las Ve­gas at The Or­leans Ho­tel and Casino at­tracted per­haps the most patina we’ve seen in one lo­ca­tion out­side of a junk­yard visit. See­ing how years of use and ex­po­sure to the el­e­ments has weath­ered these cars and given them so much char­ac­ter is mes­mer­iz­ing. Ev­ery sun-baked spot, rusty dent or scratch, and patch of worn-off paint has a story to tell and makes these cars in­ter­est­ing to look at.

Cars painted by Mother Na­ture might not ap­peal to ev­ery­one, but some­one could look at these ve­hi­cles a mil­lion times and still no­tice some­thing new with ev­ery glance. Whether it is real patina with orig­i­nal paint, faux patina that has been slathered on, bare metal left to rust, or even flap-disc-in­duced patina, it all fits in at a show like this. Per­haps best of all, the own­ers don’t even have to worry about their cars getting scratched any­more!
