For some reason unbeknownst to us, August 31st is International Bacon Day. And while that fine day in history has already passed for 2013, Ford didn’t miss a beat in celebrating the observance by releasing a bacon-wrapped 2014 Fiesta.
Now before you begin to dream about having a fiesta with an edible Fiesta, you should know that the car isn’t wrapped with actual bacon. Instead, what Ford really announced is the availability of custom bacon graphics — believed to be the first of their kind.
The pièce de résistance is the full “Bacon Wrap” — 10 giant strips of bacon rolled around the entire Fiesta. Other options from the bacon-wrap Fiesta menu include:
- Bacon Racing Strips – two pieces of bacon that go on the car’s hood and resemble classic dual racing stripes
- Side of Bacon – two individual strips of bacon that wrap over rear wheel – popular among those on a diet
The bacon graphics are just a few of the custom exterior vinyl graphics Fiesta buyers can order to install on their subcompact sedan or hatchback. Why? Because in self-expression, that’s why.
The wraps are produced by Ford Custom Graphics, along with 3M Original Wraps, and are available at www.fordcustomgraphics.com.
