Moths have a bountiful supply of fur they leave behind whenever they hit a spiderweb.

Cars should have the same finish, too. After a scrape, just add some flock and you are as good as new.

       Are you having a bad hair day or did you motorcycle into a flock of moths?

       Moth fur? This isn’t clear. Does the car have moth fur, or spider webs? Who has the flock?

       There used to be this hideous thing called Velvecar where the vehicles were sprayed, flocked, with a velvet-like coating. Haven't seen one since I was a child, though. A purple Ford pickup, I think it was.

       I have something like that, sometimes. Ablative car covering. I call it mud, and it gets applied by driving off-road.   

       Seriously, though. A fuzzy car would rust fast if there was a nick in the paint under the fluff. It would be difficult to keep clean and avoid bald spots. I'll take my chances with scratches. Besides, fuzz won't stop keying or a fender-bender.
