The Ten Best Car-Stumes (Car Costumes)

It's that time of the year again when kids dress up as something spooky and ask total strangers for candy. But why let them have all the fun? Adults can express their Halloween spirit too by decorating their vehicles, and these ten might just be the best tools for the job.


10.) Beetle Whale

The Ten Best Car-Stumes (Car Costumes)

This is a very complex one. The Beetle is supposed to be a bug. But this was turned into a whale, with a tail. What it has is almost like a ducktail, but that would make it a Porsche. Which is what every Volkswagen ever wants to be. Twisted.

9.) Fierrari Enzno

8.) Miata Mustang

Did it ever cross your mind that the original Mustang was way too big? Are you a fan of the Mazda Miata, but not the Japanese styling? For $13,000 plus taxes (not including the donor car), the all-steel M1stang is your answer.

7.) Catbus

The grinning cat from My Neighbor Totoro can run, fly, bounce and hop across forests and lakes to reach its destination. The perfect way to travel, not just for Halloween. DISCLAIMER: The car costume version might not fly or bounce.

4.) E30 Homer

This is one of the reasons why it's getting more and more difficult to find an unmolested BMW E30. But in this case, we can forgive the owner, because this Homer LeMons car is awesome.

3.) Spirit of Lemons

Basically, anything Speedycop has ever built qualifies in this round. The Spirit of Lemons was built from a Cessna, and it works.

2.) Reliant Space Shuttle

NASA could have saved billions just by looking for a Reliant. That shape, the lightweight body, everything points at one direction: Upwards.
