I realize car decorating fads come and go and if it was 1955 I would likely be puzzled about racoon tails on the antenna or something but hats the deal with the cat scratch over the headlight?  Where did it start and why is it cool?

my guess is the claw marks are to emphasize the "hellcat" side of dodge. with the "face" damage as battle worn? no idea why or when it started, but eventually it will probably  be the same as the eyelashes fad.

Had to look it up to see what it was... looks kind of stupid in my opinion..

Better than the "Bad boy" guy stickers on every Mustang GT back in the 90s though..

I always get a kick out of the old "D.A.R.E" stickers on the back of Joe Dirt type cars.

That I get, but what started it in the first place?  Why a scratch over a headlight?

I don't know if I think its a Hellcat thing.  I think these decals were turning up before the Hellcats arrived.   Besides, why would a cat scratch itself?  In any case, it was just a question of "curiosity", I will probably live without ever knowing.
