Looks like a Pep Boys special. Someone somewhere thinks that is cool. Not me.

I especially like the rust coming out of the exhaust. Now that spells performance.

Yeah, but see... JCWhitney figured out Buick's secret porthole speed formula and started offering it in their catalog! Now everyone can get portholes and go fast!

When a hot glue gun is one of your "go-to" tools, you need to get out of the car customizing business. On the other hand, I still like it more than most of West Coast Customs' builds.

The BMW is indeed special, and practical too. One just never knows when it might be necessary to deal with corn-on-the-cob while on the road.

I remember when I was a mere lad that STP stickers were also widely thought to add horsepower. As much as things change, they seem to stay the same.

If the owner add a wheel spacer and drop it down little bit, the car would gain a lot...

I dunno, Harry....

I have an article where these things were tested extensively on 3 different cars.

Average net hp gains were as follows:
  • 3"x6" porthole = 7 hp
  • 3"x6" chrome emblem = 5.3 hp
  • 3"x6" vinyl decal= 7.3 hp
Remember, these tests were done in a controlled environment and measured in "visual horsepower"

The really interesting thing though- as more decals were added, the visual horsepower rating seemed to gain exponentially, whereas the port holes and chrome were more of a linear type of progression. Unfortunately, I don't have the numbers from that part of the test... Seems my dog ate the second page from it. :(
