Hubcaps 1 of 11

It's amazing how automobiles have changed over past few decades, and many once-popular car features have gone from standard to nearly extinct. Check out these parts that are doomed to disappear from new cars!

Some cars may continue to use smaller caps to cover the bolts and protect them from rust.
