    We've seen some rather unfortunately garish chrome-jobs in our day, and yes, some have even ladled on the shiny stuff in gold. Many of those have also been Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

    1314134940

    What separates an old car from a classic? In many cases, not a lot. Beautiful sheet metal, a legendary powertrain or world-class performance could make a world of difference, and so can attention to detail. We're suckers for a well-stamped curve, an intricate chrome grille or even an elegant ...

    Video: TinTek offers the full chrome treatment in a vinyl wrap
    1305845940

    Generally speaking, we're more into the vinyl wraps than the chrome treatment. That's because most vinyl wraps give a car a nice matte finish that contrasts nicely with the glossiness of your standard factory offering, while your average full-body chrome treatment is – more often than not ...

    Redefining the term "enough is enough", the owner of this car is said to have had his SLR gold-chromed.
