This car may not be news to many, but i just happened upon it on autoblog. Apparently it was just up on ebay for $34k

Box flares just RULE.

About 10 years ago you could still get the daytona widebody kits for foxbodies... I wish you still could

No amount of flares will ever make a 79-93 Mustang look good. They're just plain ugly.

Something like above kit is available all over ebay for $2000. Called the Dominator kit

I used to feel the same way, and I still don't really don't care for any of the hatchbacks (especially the LX hatch... ugliest.. car.. EVER).

But the foxbody notch is DEAD SEXY:

And that's not even a really pretty one.

box flares do make things awesomer. and P71, they don't need to make it better looking, but certainly awesomer.

A little ebay-fu reveals the Dominator kit is also available for the 99-04 Mustangs but looks nowhere near this good.

Box flares on boxy cars = win. Instantly.

But what about rounder cars? Like...say, a 1st Gen Celica?
