There was a thread a few months back on this.
Some guys at APC were working on a design, but I also read that the cost would be too high for the small demand.
I for one hope they never go into production.

i think they should make one for the t-bird. it would be nice to have another option on making our cars look better. i hope it gets done.

We need to just make a sticky on "No they don't make ricelights" since none of them can figure out the search function.

I dont think I would like the euro look but I think that a clear ( not crystal little frosty ) set would look nice on birds.....just my opinion tho..

whats the point in having "clear" tail lights anyway? i knew a guy with a neon that had a pair. looked tacky and leaked. pair after pair kept leaking. maybe a tinted style would b cool. but none of that ricey generic clear crap ya know? but the best tail lights to me r the 92 and up. gotta love them. i even "converted my trunklid from a 91 to a 92 for the tail lights. i thought that i would have to get another power source for the led lights on the trunk but when i plugged the lid in they worked. i was all kinds of happy.


If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

yea true. i asked a kid with a primer slammed s-10 if those tailights add horses and he said yes and it was faster than my car. i laughed in his face but he didnt like it. the thing sounded like a weedeater with the throttle stuck wide open. garbage!
yea screw the euro tailights. i hope they never become avalible for thunderbirds.

haha sorry i couldnt resist. it seemed like a good idea at the time.
dont u think tinted ones would b ok? i know they make a spray. how does that stuff work? i had tailight covers on my 89 when they came out. 70 some odd dollars for them and they ended up gettin smashed. they looked sweet though.

I used the niteshades spray on mine at one point, got tired of it and got out a rag and a can of paint thinner and got rid of it. It worked pretty well though, never could shine up the paint as good as the plain plastic.
