Smiles are contagious, but what about when it's on an automobile? It is still cute?

This article is not about transformers or some sort of decal or vehicle wrap, this is solely about the shape of the car, truck, van, SUV, etc.

Have you ever looked at a car directly from the front or the rear and think, "Huh, it looks like there is a smirk on the vehicle." Sure, it might be a strange thought but it isn't much different than looking at a cloud and using your imagination.

None of the above vehicles look like they are smiling. Can you blame them? They're sitting at the traffic light at E. State Street and Mulford Road, nobody enjoys that light.

If you're thinking, "This guy is insane. Cars don't have smiles.", you're wrong. You will see what I'm talking about in a second.

Perhaps the best part of this car smiling is what else you might see, or at least I do. This particular car's smile is on the rear of the vehicle. What is even better is the fact that the trunk is noticeably open while it hauls lumber. The stack lumbered makes the already smiling car look like it's sticking its tongue out.

I'll admit, it takes a little bit of imagination but if you can focus on the pleasant side of life I swear you will see it.

If your vehicle has a smiley face (or sad face) or is unique in some fashion, let us know in a comment.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
