Opera windows on Sports Roof


Recommended Posts

Agreed - of all that have been modified in this manner, this one appears to be the best executed (pertaining to the craftsmanship, that is).

 

Still looks like hell though.

+1 to that, ruined a perfectly good fastback and I've grown quite fond of them after joining this crew. :D

Not quite ruined - like it or not, it is a surviving example of a dealer modification that would otherwise be lost to history.

 

For that matter, nobody has bothered to attempt documenting most of these aftermarket kits and the dealers known for installing them either.

Let's all hope they don't come back in fashion.

I've kept my tramp rods, air shocks and fluffy dice just in case.

Who remembers those bubble glass/plastic things they used to install on the side of some cars...

 

Here in au a lot of dudes used to put them on their holden "sandman" panel vans!

They complimented the purple crush velour interior nicely... (I think I swollowed some vomit whilst typing this)

I can hear KISS singing "I was made for loving you" in a deep corner of my sick nostalgic mind....

 

Brings to mind Corvette Summer.
