Patina Rides From Viva Las Vegas 2018
Patina Rides From Viva Las Vegas 2018!
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!
