Good idea. Wonder if I could wrap my car? :)

You could, but you'd need to have something metallic or something that conducts electricity, dragging on the ground since the tires would insulate your car. Grounding is the key. Do you remember some people used to customize their cars with those dragger things and I never found out what that was about. Your car would have a distinctive look for sure. Or you could put it inside your car.

You think it would ever be useful outside a nuclear war?

I was thinking of that bit in War of the Worlds where all the cars were put out of commission by an emp pulse.

I'm not sure even the Faraday Cage would stop an EMP, but it would make your car the talk of the town before an EMP.
