Auto Tech Plastics is the maker of the new Flex Woody kit. For $899, they'll give you a set of contact appliques and plastic trim that extend over the tops of the doors and the hatch area for a more seamless Woody look.

It actually looks pretty good!

It doesn't get any tackier than wood applique on the side of a car.

Everyone who slapped plastic woodgrain on their PT Cruiser five years ago is going wild right now.

In the case of the PT Cruise and Flex, you're right. Have you ever seen a full-size station wagon from the 80's without the appliqué? They look freaking strange, almost like the car was designed to carry it. If I ever do a full restoration of my leSabre, you better believe it will have the wood grain on it.

That has got to be the absolute worst exicution of faux wood on the side of a vehicle that I've ever seen. They'd have to pay me $900 to put it on, and then I'd never drive the vehicle.

2nd ugliest car I've ever seen in my life with faux-wood sides.

Only that photochop of a woodie-Element is uglier.

The Flex is ugly enough by itself

I actually like some of the old wood applications... on wagons... the problem is the Auto Tech Plastics over did the job. The front and rear tips don't flow with the lines of the Flex. The wood section is too thick... you need more paint on the bottom of the doors and on the top crown. The blond trim strips at the front of the front door and rear of the rear door make this application look the the Griswald's Family Truckster Wagon. Also the horizontal strakes in the doors are too much... a problem of having the top to bottom section too thick.

The Element woody makes me speechless... it doesn't even start to follow body lines.

Cue the Aztek woody next.
