I was thumbing through some old tachometers and other vintage stuff in the garage and forgot all about this. 1970's American Racing aircraft aluminum rear spoiler. I got this from Honest Charley's speed shop as a discontinued unit in 1981. Installed it on my '76 and spray painted it 2M Red to match the car. It served as a bar top for many cheap bottles and cans of beer when I was a teenager, as we drank and plotted our next races, or simply scoped out the women. Good times.

Also have a set of Cal Custom Pontiac 400 valve covers I had on my '68 GTO many moons ago.

I'll get some pictures of some of the other vintage stuff I've accumulated over the years.

What do you guys have? Post some pictures and any background stories.

I had the foot gas, brake and dimmer in m 1st Gran Torino back in 1978. I have no clue what happened to them after I took them off.
