Let me see-

RALPH NADER PUSHED THIS ONE TOO! RATS-FOILED AGAIN!!!

I guess someone was blinded by the glare and wrecked his Vette into a car load of handicapped children and killed them all. What a tradjedy.

The reality is most likely some leftist nut whined to the right person and got noticed.

...and if you notice the early shark's inside rear view mirror had a chrome housing. In '73 that changed to a black housing. Again due to the reflections of the chrome. Guess it reflected enough light to blind the drivers going the other direction :D

Now if we can do something about those pickups with that huge flat chrome rear bumper that reflects your headlights right back into your eyes :) :) ;)
