Would you consider anything you did to your car/s as a fad? This is a list of some from 70’s to now.

Fox tails on aerials
CB Radios
Diffs painted orange
Huge fibreglass aerials
Moon disks
Dragway rims
Jacked up backends only
Lowered front ends only
Milo tins (one guy actually had a real Milo tin with the Milo label still on it!)
Chev badges on holdens
Fluffy dice hanging on mirrors
How many ford guys put the HO rear spoiler on many lower model falcons in 70’s?
What about the front XU1 chrome spoiler that every LC and LJ seemed to have?
How many put stateman front ends on base kingswoods/monaros in 70’s & 80’s?

Im sure theres more out there…

Over lowering the rear end.
V8's of the 304 variety. Everyone seems to have one at the moment.
Them ugly chrome taillights on VT's and VX's.

Driving around during the day with fog/driving lights on...grrrrr
Do these people think they are a new invention?
They have been around for decades, but we have only used them in the FOG or country driving. They did exist prior to VX Commodores!!
Before someone says safety, you do have parkers - far less annoying
