4th Generation Notchback

The other day I discovered the Trans Am notchback but I found out they only had it for 3rd Gens.
Hawks sells a notchback
Hatch, Camaro/Firebird 82-92 Fiberglass Rear Notchback Hatch

Thought it looked sexy as mess and really different but problem is I have a 4th Gen...then I came across this...


I thinks it's nom noms and unique...
I gotta get one for Firebird!
anybody know where to get one?!

how you guys feel about it?

Personally I think it's ugly. LOL. No way I would put one on my car.

Can you say "blind spot from hell."
F-body blind spots are bad enough as is.

I don't have a big blind spot. I've got about 175* of rear visibility. the only thing that can hide in my "blind spot" is a motorcycle, and they usually make enough noise that I know they are there...

and that notch for the 4th gen is something you will regret later.

There is no way you would be able to see out of that! Looks. "OKAY" but i think it fails.

If you had done just a little bit more searching on the site you were on you would've found it... easily.

Ick. It just looks like it doesn't belong and almost seems borderline "ricey".

The only thing I like about it is that you can remove the back window for a more open feeling. Looks....meh.

Our sponsor has it too.
I'm sure he can work you a nice deal on it.

Looks horrible. But it all depends on how much the rear window is to replace. If your rear window breaks and it's cheaper than a window. That would be the only time that i would even consider it.

There are a TON of better things that you can do with $800 for the F-Body.

For $800 its really not worth it, considering how it looks and how people feel about it.

thats one of those things that I wouldn't want on a car, but if the car had one when I bought it, I wouldn't change right away.. I make that statement only after consideration of the black RS posted above...

For $800 you can do some nice engine mods instead.
