Everyone keeps telling me the only thing wrong with my 79 is the vinyl top, so I took the spoiler off and put a luggage rack on it.

Now strangers will see me and have two things to complain about.

Also, I found a trunk with a luggage rack on craigslist for a price I couldn't ignore.

Make it three things.

You're missing the center caps for the wheels. ;)


Welcome to NastyZ28!
If they all looked the same... They wouldn't be nearly as interesting.

I can't remember the last time I saw a luggage rack on a 2nd gen Camaro. Kind of cool - will you use it, or just for show?

I always liked those racks on the early Mustangs. That's about it.
This is the same rack they put on the Corvette, so I can tell people it has vintage Corvette parts now.
Kind of looks like a C3 Corvette luggage rack.
It is!
What's with the license plate?
They're required on all cars since 1903.

It is held on by stubbornness alone, so I don't think I'll trust it to hold anything until I figure out how to beef it up.

I thought it would be neat for roadtrips, but I was secretly hopeful I'd one day have a set of track tires strapped to it since I live near Lime Rock... I think I'm several thousand dollars and a few cubic inches away from that being relevant though.

Oh, so that's how its gonna be? :) I just thought it was a personalized plate and I couldn't see the whole thing to figure it out.
Would be nice if you could mod the rack or mounting just enough to keep the rear spoiler. Looks like it's close.
