However, only a specialist company has the necessary equipment to design a uniform pattern on the computer and make it cover the car seamlessly. There are millions of large vans on the road, but the Transporter fits the "rust bucket" quite well. And we mean that not as an insult, but as a way to describe artistic expression.

The so-called "euro rat" trend seems to be strongest in the Volkswagen community, as Golf, Beetle and even Caddy owners want to stand out for the "wrong reasons."

This particular Volkswagen T5 Transporter van has been customized by Clyde Wraps of Britain. It's got such an awesome wrap that it's got people talking about it. Mind you, the LED daytime running lights are dead giveaways, as they suggest this is a brand new van, not one that's been sitting in the rain for so long.

“It only took 3 days for the police to pull him over to ask what was going on with all the rust,” Clyde’s Wraps write on their website. “Please note that there is nothing illegal about going to town with graphics on your vehicle but it may confuse others!"

Even if you don't like what you see here, if the owner of the van ever decided he's bored with the wrap, he can always remove it. When that happens, an immaculate paint job without any paint chips will be revealed.
