They look like an aftermarket vent.

I have a pair that looks exactly like that in fiberglass sitting in my future projects parts pile. Can't tell you where they were manufactured - they came with some fiberglass side skirts and some other pieces and parts when I bought one of my cars.

Not 100% sure, but they look an awful lot like these. Unfortunately it does not list a manufacture.

Yea... got those. Great item, you can dispose the aftermarket supercharger when running these air intake. Oh "They scoop air plenty". Faster you go, more they scoop that fresh air in. Great mod X10

They are also great at scooping cigarette butts, dead leaves, little birds and all the other stuff roaming on today roads e.g. if you go for them make sure the mesh/grill is up to the task and installed rock solid lol

it's an fvd product (hence the cost) but if you really search you can find an English company that is selling knockoffs for $30 a set.

The pic I posted is from the UK seller. He wants $105 USD + $60 s&h. But they sure are pretty.
