However, there are still some diehard enthusiasts who go to great lengths to customize their vehicles, as you can see above. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

Christopher Moloney, a Canadian photographer, brings movie magic to life in his latest series, FILMography, which is an ongoing project that blends scenes from movies with their real-life, present-day locations.
