Quarter window scoop

Hey guys! Ive been searching the internet for ideas on something to make my mx6 a one off ride, and one day i thought about searching up the quarter window, well, there were no other cars other than mistangs ,challengers and camaros that seem to sport them.. Well then i thought it might be unique to design and make a set of quarter window scoops for my cars, but obviously... The sheer size of them and surface area that they cover would pose a problem. So what do you guys think? Would it look horrible? Has it been done? I wouldnt cover the whole window in a MASSIVE airplane scoop, but opinions are welcome

Re: Quarter window scoop

Search in google "riced out mx6" ignore the yellow mx6.... the 6th or 7th image will be of a red mx6 with hood mural, lambo doors and rear quarter window louvers....

I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.

Thanks man, the vader kit is what im looking at too, but i dont want louvers, i want an actual scoop, not big, but either flush and running down from the roof or just coving the window btween the seal, kinda like a mustang.

Re: Quarter window scoop

You might even be able to mold one out of a sunroof scoop..?

Re: Quarter window scoop

Eh I didn't necessarily mean a sunroof scoop I'm sorry. More like a driver window scoop
