Aerodynamic rear window cover?
 
Hello!

Last time I was on here, I was eco modding a 93 Astro van. My chore today is the 97 Saab 900 turbo 2.0 inline 4.

Browsing around at some images, I unintentionally revisited a childhood icon: The rear window cover on the DeLorean from Back to the Future. *edit I actually don't know if the thing was on the DeLorean or not, see below.

I think most of you know what I'm talking about, but if not, I will try to explain.

Multiple Kammabacks all the way down the rear window of a car with gaps for visibility.

I am not sure what these are called, but looking at the Saabs CD (.34) I think I could shave a .05 off of that with some light modding.

My question is this: What is the name of that rear window mount? I can not find it under the multiple search criteria's of rear/ back window cover/mount aerodynamic and I don't really know what else to search to get the thing on my screen haha

Thank you!

You guys are awesome :D That's it exactly.

Now if only they were made for my year :(

I wouldn't worry since that piece does nothing for the aerodynamics. You'd be better off with a venetian blind inside the glass. The reason it works on the Delorean is there is a vertical backlight, so it turns a notchback into a fastback, sort of...

I believe they were just for style and to block the sun while still letting you see out. I know as far back as 1970 Plymouth had them from the factory on some Barracudas.
