I personally would go with Eleanor, but I do like your current ones. Why do you want to get rid of them

typical itch....everyone else has these around here...sigh.
thats why Im asking....now if AM will just offer a deal like I got on the current set...that'd be nice. got these for $129 painted vs the 199.

plus the classic would match almost the exact slots in the rear louvers..balancing out the back / top of the car

I'll guess you don't use those side glass windows for any help in side visability. I want a set, but the wife said it's hard enough to pull out of our 'hood.

I like the Eleanor out of the 3.

I like the ones you already have on Slimer

Your car looks great the way it is. The side vents are fine.
You need to talk everyone else into changing theirs

That window is not much, doesn't help me with visibility. At least on my 02 it doesn't help.

I like the one's you have now, then again those are the one's I have too. Only thing I would trade mine out for would be the flush mount one's from Silver Horse.

These?

SHR Mustang Flush-Mount Quarter Window Louvers - Unpainted (05-09) S197-300 - Free Shipping!

I heard they can be a PITA to install, as the stock quarter window glass has to be removed, and on some years, the inside plastic has to be trimmed.

But they are sharp looking.

I've go the second option. I have actually thought about changing to your first option. But I have rear louvers as well so I'm not sure how all of that will go together. I'd go with the second option. Are you going to paint the rear louvers?
