"Snowglobe and or Lava Lamp Car Body with Optional Flexterior to Move In Wind.

Two layer car body, one clear, houses liquid and suspended particles.

The layers would be about an inch apart and filled with the "snow globe" portion. As the car accelerated, braked or turned, the decorative particles, I would suggest bright sparkly stuff, would swirl and flow around the car's curves in a never ending series of patterns.

To keep the particles from settling, they'd be varied in their buoyancy to cover the car fairly evenly from top to bottom.

For the lava lamp thing, you'd use heat from the exhaust pipes running along the bottom of either side to heat the wax so it would float up and do it's 60s acid trip thing.

Additionally, the soft skin idea from Xenzag could be added to move stuff around in the wind.

(Lava lamp part is 8th's idea, floppy skin is Xenzag's idea.)

Not a great example but the basic idea. https://www.youtube...watch?v=iJ0-f5HfKg8

       A "lava lamp" look would be excellent.   

       A car covered by OLED display panels could probably simulate this effect.

       Put a lava lamp hood on the thing. Put the engine heat to work.   

       Or just make the whole thing a lava lamp getting its heat from the exhaust pipes running along the bottom of either side.   

       I like that.

       Hmm. Could mix the two.

       You should post that, [doc].

       I'll just add it to this one.

       Could the "lava" look like custard ?

       Sure.
