I can not believe my eyes!

This just makes me want to start punching infants. "If" they were real vents, why would we want to vent our trunks? I used to have a Z3 so im familiar with vents, and all the hondas would steal that style and make me mad, but this just takes the cake. My philosphy, if it should have had vents, they would have made it like that from the factory (ie. 911 turbo needs it, corvettes have vents for their gigantic brakes, mercedes has them for their brakes and engine, and we already have vents on both sides for intake and engine heat) Just thought id give my opinion, sorry to offend anyone if I did.

Oh she was "Supervised" by the nut taking the photo, can you imagin someone driving around parking lots in "BOON DOCKS" and having his daughter slap those "vents" on 50K cars and up?

That's funny and slightly disturbing.

As a side note, I heard the hood scoops on a Holden Monaro/Pontiac GTO serve no purpose other than to look good.

Pretty cool, but I'm waiting for the second generation, three portholes like on the new Buicks.

They could be used to cover up them fake bullet hole decals...

That is hilarious.....
