Time was, the cool thing was to have those black venetian-blind louvers on the outside of your rear glass.



What ever happened to that style? It's all a matter of fashion.

Hey you are right Dan. I guess I came across as some hater or snob.
As I said, each to their own. I was into the Street Truck scene for years as a teen and was just surprised to see some big Billet Wheels on a Leg, that's all. I put bronze wheels on my black Acura and most of my buddies thought they looked like crap. But I liked them. Personal tastes are so vast, I guess that's why Sport Compact Car mag contains about 50 pages every issue advertising wheels and tires...
