Default Ever see one of these?

I've never seen one of these rear spoilers before, have you? It's crazy huge.

Yes. I only know one person who's car it looks even remotely good on. And it's a black car, so the lines don't show too bad.
Any other color is just.....

There are very few rear spoilers that look good. IMO

A song comes to mind "(Too) Hip to be Square" by Huey Lewis and the News

But in this case that spoiler - It's not hip, it's too square! Oh and that Vette is too hip to have that square on it!




Damn gonna have that song stuck in my head now!

I noticed that I had an inbound link from this forum, so I figured I'd check it out.

Munch, wouldn't it have been easier to just ask me who made the spoiler on the forum where you took the photo from?

It's made by rksport and no I don't like it either. It was on the car when I purchased it 4.5 years ago and I'm too weary of the underlying paint to remove it. God knows what they used to hold it on...tape, glue, who knows.

I've learned to live with it. You're all right, though. The folding-chair toting, alternator-plenum polishing, CCW waxing Corvette Club members never like it either. Thankfully this car spends more time on the track than baking in the sun at shows while being run into by walkers and canes.

If you're interested in seeing other images that Munch kindly omitted, please check here.

Gave the 'ol Vette a winter makeover (PICS) - Corvette Forum

Thanks,
Matt

Matt -

I meant no disrespect and if you were offended that I posted your pic I appologize.

In my defense it is crazy huge. Welcome to the barn.
