To each his own, but for me - No Thanks!! Probably one of the most "far out" additions I've seen.
Couldn't see - is there also a chrome bumper on the front?

Not that I like the idea, but perhaps a different bumper like this one would have been better.

That's not a bumper. It's the newest street rear diffuser

I'm thinking those carriage bolts are fake and they're actually back up sensors.

I've been thinking about a front brush guard for my 03 vert. How would that look? Should it be chrome or black?
Can't put a gun rack on the rear window because it's a vert.
Longhorns on the hood maybe?
Got me thinking.

I like it. Slides right into the trailer hitch receiver so I can change up the look from mild to wild.

There still is only four pipes what you are seeing the the reflection off that chrome beauty.

Sorry, can't follow the "it's your car, do what you want" or "to each his own" politically correct line on this one. It looks like ***. And an ugly *** at that. Someone has to defend that poor C5.
