Without further ado, we present to you the best Halloween costumes for cars:

1. Gumball machine! Although this may be unrealistic if you have anything at all that needs to go in the trunk, this clever giant gumball machine is a great way to get your car suited up for the Halloween season.

2. Shark! Someone clearly had a lot of fun sewing a jaw and teeth to attach to the hood of the car when parked. The fin on top is an especially nice touch and could potentially stay on the car even when it is driving around the neighborhood. Be sure to check the fluid levels in your car while the hood is popped!

3. Spider web! This is a super fun way to decorate your car in a way that is (hopefully) safe to drive. At Wrench, we recommend that you do not cover any of the windows so as to not hinder your visibility, and make sure that the spider is securely fastened if you are going to be driving with it attached to the roof. This car takes the spider web costume to the extreme but is great for inspiration.

4. Reindeer! Want to ring in the holiday cheer a little early? Dress your car up as a reindeer for Halloween and then you will be all set for Christmas as well! These car decorations are affordable and always fun to see on the road. For bonus points, get all of your friends to dress their cars up too and form your own squad of Santa’s reindeer.

5. Ghostbusters car! This one would be harder to replicate if you do not have a 1959 Cadillac, but it is an iconic car costume. It perfectly embodies the spirit of the movie with the roof decals, Ghostbusters logo, and sirens. There are many movies with famous cars, so watch your favorite film for car decorating inspiration or look to see if others have done the same. (Hint: think Mater from Cars or Herbie from Herbie: Fully Loaded).

6. Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo! Who doesn't love a Scooby-Doo-themed costume? Bonus points if you match with your car and dress up as a member of the Scooby squad. Many cars have tried to copy the Mystery Machine, so keep your eyes peeled on the road for this famous ride.
