I'm kind of with the author of this article. I think they're an eyesore.

But hey, whatever floats your boat.

Although uniquely unattractive, it may be more functional than a tonneau cover but offer no advantage over a full cap.

You mean he does not travel inside the vehicle? I always thought the outside truck bed was subject to exhaust fumes?

I always liked the advertisement where the guy says to the lady with the AMC Gremlin “ where’s the other half of your car, Toots? The first time I got in a Dodge Charger in the 60’s I couldn’t believe how limited the view was from the interior rear view mirror.

The only reason you wanted to look out the rear was for cops...................for speeding in that Charger. I think I got more tickets for my loud scavenger pipes with cherry bomb mufflers on my 56 Ford than for speeding.

Wasn’t it a famous politician who ran for president and is now a US Senator who revealed that his family put a dog in a kennel on the roof of his station wagon and took off on a family vacation? I hauled my shorthair in both the box and cap and in my slide in pickup camper with no ill effects. Never thought it irresponsible but things have changed in 45 years. Our
current dog rides in a kennel behind the driver in the SUV.

Those Chargers were pretty quick. So were the Coronets.
