Back in the day, these accessories had to include:
If you were more of the gambling risk taker sort, you could always opt for a neat set of fuzzy dice. It would impede your view just as well as a foxtail but these came in all sorts of colors and designs and allowed you to really show some personality………. or that you liked fuzzy things.
Although I’ve got one on my monitor as we speak, I never understood why people sported one of these on their dashboard. What message did it really give to other motorists? You liked girls in grass skirts? You were into Don Ho? You’d rather be surfin’? You never got over your freakish fetish for your sister’s Barbies?
Although a must have accessory for any street legal machine that had the muscle to do damage on a race track, it always cracked me up when you’d see them show up on a stock Cavalier or Hyundai Pony right off the showroom floor.
Undeniably a bad ass accessory on a vintage muscle car or sweet street rod. Paired with a set of headers, it would give you the throaty rumble that announced to the world you had a car that meant business. It looked nasty and it sounded mean. Problem was that the same people that would put hood locks on a VW Rabbit would also put side pipes on a 1985 Crown Victoria. Just not the same effect.
