Re: V8 Supercar rear wing...

Unless you are going road racing, don't really see it working. I saw a picture of a GTO with one similar and it just looked like crap. I think some have installed the Commodore rear spoiler.

For me, the huge wings are one of thee most mind boggling things people do to their cars. I just don't get it.

Wonder if they used 1/2" or 5/8 plywood? The 1/2" would be worth at least 15 HP since it's lighter.

Remember the special edition Mustang (80's- early 90'?) that had that horrible rear spoiler on it? It was a very rare Stang...but so cheezy!
