A look into the history of the automobile industry will tell you how our preferences and desire for cars to look a certain way has evolved over the millennium. History has given us several legendary and iconic rides, be it the 1965 Ford Mustang “K”, the 1949 Ferrari 166 MM or the 1957 Mercedes 300SL Gullwing. The designs have changed over time owing to technological breakthroughs, and with that the chop-shop industry as well. These days, most four-wheel enthusiasts want to “pimp” their rides, and the results will often blow your mind (in both good and bad ways). While many of these “upgrades” have no impact whatsoever on the performance of the car but rather the look of it, some of them are indeed useful when you are out on the road, and will save your hide on more than one occasion. So I have prepared for you a list of 15 unique gadgets which must be made a part of your ride, ASAP.
