In the last few years, bacon has been incorporated into everything from lip balm and bar soap to dessert and even cocktails. Now, Ford has come up with a way to cover cars in the beloved breakfast meat (sort of).

To celebrate International Bacon Day, the American car company is giving customers the chance to wrap their 2014 Ford Fiestas in bacon. Buyers interested in making their neighbors drool can order up a Fiesta subcompact car wrapped in one of four vinyl  graphics showing off everyone’s favorite breakfast meat.

Ford-driving bacon fans can go the whole-hog and wrap their entire car in bacon stickers or the more faint of heart can position a few juicy strips as racing stripes down the sides or slap one or two around the rear wheel wells or on the fenders. The wraps are available along with Ford’s other less-delicious looking wraps on the Fiesta graphics website. Prices start at $78 plus installation.

“This car just makes so much sense,” Allan Benton, CEO of Benton’s Country Hams, said in a press release. “In the 40 years I’ve been in this business, I’ve never seen so much interest in bacon.”
