Aftermarket wings. Blech. My rant
I've been around long enough to see a whole slew of mods come and go. I go back to carburetion, points and plugs, bias ply tires, no clear coats and non halogen lamps. Shit, we even had manual chokes! I've seen jacked up cars, low-riders, muscle cars and hot rods all have their day in the sun.
But I will never, EVER understand the attraction of a giant erector set style wing bolted on the rear deck of a car. They have ZERO styling in common with the body they are grafted to. Many are unpainted, few match the car color, and all are supremely ugly. They have zero function at sane speeds, no beauty, no creativity, and no originality on the part of the car driver. All they are is grafted shit.
Can anyone give me even one semi-rational reason for wanting one of these on a car?
