Fashion and Protection All in One
Curiosity arises as soon as people hear about this. “What?!!How?!!” Yes, these are the first questions I hear when I talk about it. But yes, it’s true. There is such a thing as a car bra. And it pretty much functions in the way a human bra does. Not convinced still ? Read on…
Car bras were first invented in 1960 by Bill Colgan, a famous maker of car parts. But it wasn’t until ten years later that the term “bra” was coined. He and his five employees decided to make what he first described as a “chastity belt for Godzilla” upon the request of Lockheed engineers who brought them ragged pieces of canvas with sewn-in wooden slats, rubber bands, crude hooks and other miscellaneous innovations. However, this protective cover was designed only for Porsche 366 models. By 1970, Colgan designed a cover like this for the 911 series and put up an advertisement entitled “Steinschlagshutzshulle.”This literally means stone/strike/shield and for short, he tagged the word “bra”.
Car-owners are lucky nowadays because car bras are no longer for Porsche cars only. And speaking of car brands, car bras are already available for Hyundai Tiburon. Hyundai Tiburon is a car known for its racer image – both in style and performance. And with this hell of a car, no proud owner would want to have unsightly damages on the car’s front end.
Your car is in constant battle against bugs, rocks and other debris every time you use it. These things can be quite evil and can cause a lot of dents, scratches, chips or any kind of damage on you car’s front end. And what better way to protect your car’s front end than by putting a protective bra to safeguard your car’s paint and finish.
Car bras delight car owners in two ways. First, Hyundai car bras protect you car’s front end by employing vinyl materials to deflect these foreign and damaging objects. The bra’s soft inner-lining also protect the finish under the vinyl layer for maximum satisfaction. Second, car bras give your car an extra look of strength and speed. Car fashionistas around the world dig car bras because of this.
Today, there are three styles of car bras available in the market. One is the the sports bra. It is designed to show your car’s original design by covering only a small part at the end of your car’s hood. Hence, it’s the small-scale version of protection. Another style is the T-style bra which is designed to protect your car’s hood from the leading end to the center. This is specially beneficial for SUVs, vans and minivans because of their raised hoods. And last but not the least, the most popular style is the full-front end bra which is specifically designed to completely shield your car’s full-front end. They employ separate pieces for the hood and the grille/bumper sections of the bra, allowing full engine compartment access.
So how much of your Hyundai Tiburon’s front end do you want to cover? When deciding about this, remember that the larger the area that the bra covers, the more area is protected. But of course, you also would want to consider your Tiburon’s original front end design to still show through by opting for a smaller car bra.
Whatever design or style you choose, a Hyundai Tiburon’s car bra is guaranteed to give you full protection and satisfaction.
