added the factory roof racks, now everyone is confused

Like everyone else, I always get the same two questions: 1. is that a GTO? 2. What is that?
Having the rack and yellow fogs confuses people now more than ever.

Stickers, Ill just plaster them all over the windshield at odd angles. But at least my racks carry Kayaks on the regular so they do serve a purpose.

Might be easier to purchase a set of factory roof racks than to locate an aftermarket equivalent. Just my $.02.

I'm confused as to why anyone would put these on their car.

Do you leave them on when you aren't toting boards?
