Non-portable holes

Joe Sherlock reports this bit of automotive cognitive dissonance:

Last week, I spotted a geezer-piloted white Chrysler 300 sedan with aftermarket Buick-style portholes installed.

I object. A true geezer would have bought an actual Buick.

That said, this particular aftermarket excrescence is showing up a lot of places, putting a few bucks in the pockets of Manny, Moe and Jack while annoying anyone with a sense of design history. The last set of bogus Cruiserline Ventiports I saw was on a GMC truck; I suppose I should be grateful that at least they were on an actual GM vehicle, instead of a freaking Chrysler fergoshsakes.

Or, for that matter, a Maserati.

    Aftermarket vinyl roofs. I could not believe the customers who absolutely insisted on putting that variety of travesty (with landau bars!!!) on a brand new Caddy. Chalk that up as another reason why it’s good that I don’t work there anymore.
