Soon enough, this trend became even bigger, as a lot more people began to work on their actual, real-life cars and make sure that they try to come close to the cars in movies and video games. All of the sudden, there was a huge surge in popularity for automobile modification. We saw how cars increasingly started off by having a growing number of add-ons as time passed, with their owners keen on making sure that their cars' appearance don't look similar to those owned by anyone else.
Initially, things did start out simple enough. People just wanted to make their cars look good, focusing especially on the colors and the paint job of the car. The colors have to be pretty eye-catching, and nothing like the original ones, which can be pretty dull. People soon moved on to applying full-body stickers and decals, most of them custom-made to really reflect the owners personality. In time, there were plenty of cars zipping around boasting brand-new colors and designs. Some people used lowering kits to improve the appearance of their car, making it really fit for racing.
Eventually, speed became a major issue. Car enthusiasts wanted to make sure their cars could hold up pretty well in a race, able to shift speeds really quickly. They began to invest in various tools, parts, and equipment, such as spoilers for more aerodynamic efficiency and Scion TC headers, in order to boost their car's speed.
The car movies have definitely given quite a lift to the car modification scene and the auto culture. Nowadays, it wouldn't be uncommon to see a souped-up car that looks nothing like everything else on the street. This makes it doubly attractive and impressive--which is exactly what any care enthusiast is hoping for.
