Can An Old Car Ever Look Cool?



When you’re young one of the first things you’ll want is your own car. The problem is that you can’t afford to buy a brand new supercar. Even if you could afford the initial asking price, it’s the insurance that can be a real killer. A new driver just wouldn’t be able to handle the weight of the cost to keep a killer car on the road.

Your only option then is to buy an older vehicle. Something that if you’re lucky came from the early 00s and if you’re unlucky came from the 90’s. The question is can an old car, a bit of a banger, ever be cool. The answer? You might be surprised.

Choose The Right One

Your first step is to make sure that you are picking the right older car to purchase. There is a variety to choose from on the market, and by finding the right car, you can get off to a good start on looking cool driving down the street.

The classic example of a cool car that is affordable would probably be a Volkswagen Golf. You can learn more about why they are so popular on You see, when you buy your first car what you’re really looking for is a hot hatchback. A nippy little car that packs a punch and doesn’t let you down in the corners. That’s the Golf all over, and you don’t even need a sports version to make it worth the purchase.

It’s just one example of a car that is affordable and looks good, even if you have to settle for one of the older models.

Black Out The Windows

Why do cars with tinted windows look cool? We think it might be something to do with making them look like Limos. It just adds a little more mystery to your vehicle, and it’s also useful if you’re carrying anything valuable in the back. One of the key things about making changes to your car is that you don’t take it to the point where it would have cost a similar price to buy a better vehicle. Well, you won’t have that issue with tinted windows, they’re surprisingly cheap.

Wrap It Up

Or, you might want to think about using a vehicle wrap. A wrap on your vehicle is a great way to give it a unique style and flair. Sites like the can provide this service for you,  ensuring that it looks absolutely breathtaking on the streets and gets all the right type of attention,

Go Low

Last but not least, you might want to think about lowering the vehicle. This makes it appear more streamlined and slick, like a race car. It won’t have a great effect on your vehicle’s overall aesthetic, but it might just be enough to make people think that it’s faster than it looks. And, when it comes to cars, speed is definitely cool.

We hope you have fun with some of these ideas if you have managed to buy your own banger. But remember, primarily a car is a way to get you from A to B. if you own one you’re better off than roughly 80 percent of the world population.
