Bra for late model
Posted by: Lynchmob ()

I know, I know. Bras ruin the paint, but I still like the look of them. Is there anybody out there still making them or does someone have a leftover they'd part with?

My Connie (Monza Coupe) doesn't like bras. She like to run free.

My Connie probably never got to Woodstock to express her freedom, but coming from Birmingham I bet the Bra got burnt there.

Breast subject ever.

Have a bra on my truck, dad installed it when it was new, in 1997. I was going to remove it, paint is all messed up underneath. I'd have to paint both fenders and hood. Left it on.

You get the clear film applied but it will cost you more then a bra would have cost.

So if you install the bra will it clasp in the front or the back? As I recall, front is easier to remove.

This makes me want to revive my poop thread.

I'll have to think of a stinky double entendre.

Okay, I have resisted this thread for a while now, but since it has gone down this avenue, I will speak up.
I personally have NEVER understood why they are called "Auto Bras"!
Most people think of the front of a car as its "Face", the headlights as the eyes, and the grill as its mouth.
This has even worked in reverse Etymology. (ie. "I will knock your lights out!" or "I am going to punch you in the grill!")
When you place something over your face, and only your eyes show through it, we call that thing a "MASK"!
I do NOT know any women that wear their brassiere over their face!
The only time that I could conceivably call it an "Auto Bra" would be if the car in question was sporting a large pair of Dagmars* ! ! !
.
From wiki
*Dagmars - (also known as "bullet bumpers") is a slang term for chrome conical shaped bumper guards which began to appear on the front bumper/grille assemblies of certain American automobiles following World War II. They reached their peak in the mid-1950s.
The term is derived from the notable physical attributes of Dagmar a buxom early 1950s television personality known for low-cut gowns and pronouncedly conical bra cups. She was amused by the tribute.

I still sell the occasional "bra". We sold a lot of them back in the 90's and around 2004-5 the demand dried up, Have only sold about 5 since then.

Front end "Bras" were invented by west coast street rodders in the "70s to protect their custom paint jobs on road trips to car shows. The funny thing is, they wouldn't be caught dead with them at the show, and would alwaysremove them before they reached town. Some how over the years they became a status symbol and some guys thought, "if I drive around with a front end cover everybody will think I've got a show car"
