Those window louvres are the hotness, but that one won't fit later cars because there are two different rear window types. If they can be made, I'd love one. Louvre, earth strip things hanging off the back, 80s look FTW.

Mad bodykit, two extra high level brake lights near the top of the rear window, spotlamps, CB radio areal with a piece of dead animal flapping from it, "his 'n hers" stick-on sunstrip, "my other car is a Porsche" sticker ...

Hang on, where's that pic of redline's old car ;-)

Warning, finnish humour.

This is rather old stuff, TV Shop is tv shopping program that broadcasts at nights here, commercial there used to be worse than poor so this is done in same spirit. Product is Amis 5000, tuner kit for every car that will make any car 'better'.

Seriously, If anyone sees a rear screen Louvre for sale, please let me know.

I want one for my Raleigh Grifter / Duncan Firewheel project.
