Ok, this is taking it old school. Unfortunately, I don't have the magazine anywhere close, but it was in one of the Mustang magazines.

It was a white hatchback LX with a fabricated aluminum spoiler sitting on the rear. It wasn't like one fo the drag spoilers you can get, it was thicker, shorter, and adjustable.

Does anyone have any pictures of know where I can find one? Worst comes to worst, I have a really good chassis guy who can build me anything I need, but I need pictures!

Thanks for all the help guys!

I think either Griggs or Maier Racing makes a spoiler like you're talking about.

Griggs makes one for the SN95 cars, but they aren't adjustable.

All of Maier's are fiberglass with no pictures :(

I think I know what car you are talking about, it was in MMFF or 5.0 either earlier this year or late last year. It had CCW's on it and the air filter stuck through the hood. The struts on the wing were on top and they attached up by the back window? I'll see if I can find a pic.

I believe thats the car. I don't remember about the air filter, though. I do think it had brake ducts under the front bumper.

That was a carb'ed car you are thinking of with the air filter. Though they might have the same wing but its a giant aluminum one thats on the yellow MM shop car I think is the one you are talking about.

November 04 issue of 5.0 is what you want. Its got the yellow MM Winged Wonder AI car on the cover. The article is on pg 118-121, I read through it, all it says about the wing is "He added a fully functional custom rear wing..." Car was built and is owned by Jamie Lewis. The wing is very cool, very functional and looks like itd be a straight forward fab job.

Thats not the wing I'm talking about, no matter how well it works, it just isn't needed on a street car.

The wing I am referring to is very similar to an aluminum drag spoiler, as in it hangs off the rear of the hatch. However, the one I saw is a little shorter and thicker sheet aluminum.

I think you may have thought I was talking about the MM car but I wasnt. Theres another car in the magazine, a white hatchback LX with a small adjustable aluminum wing that sits back off the hatch. The adjusting turn buckles attach up by the hatch on each side. Thats the one I was talking about. Sorry if thats not it just trying to help.

Yeah thats the car, but someone was talking about the yellow car. Anyone got any pics of that white one? ;)

Sorry I guess I was combining two cars in my head. I got it confused with a silver car from another issue that was the carbed car. I'm looking at the white car now, I just don't have a scanner!

How about a digital camera? Just take a picture of the picture, it should come out OK (having done it before). Not sure how the picture posting works here, but if you need someplace to host it email it me and I'll put it up.

Thats perfect! Thank you for the pictures!

Now, time to save up and talk to my fabricator!

You might try and contact APEX Motorsports theyre mentioned in the article for helping with the build extensively and could maybe get you some better pics of the wing or get you in touch with someone that knows the specs and dimensions of it. Better than guessing at it.

I think it looks pretty cool, but it would look better on a notchback rather than the hatchback. And from the pictures it doesn't look aluminum to me - you can see reflections in it. That would lead me to believe that it's either plexiglass or, if it is in fact aluminum, it's highly polished.

That wing if far too low to have any real effects, and it looks like crap.
I never said it had any real effect. I'm just getting tired of the 93 Cobra spoiler I've got and wanna switch it up.

G'day!
