Fender Vent Screens

The fender vents on Trans Ams are not only for looks, they actually serve a functional purpose as well.  Air rushing inside the engine bay when traveling at high speeds creates lift thereby reducing traction on the front tires.   These vents reduce this lift by diverting some of the air out of the fenders.  My Trans Am will never see speeds that would render these vents useful but that doesn’t stop me from making them look cool.  The stock rectangular screen was replaced with a more appealing hex pattern then painted gold to match the lettering.
