So the bumpers are stuck out on 8 inch stalks behind the car ??? Sounds a bit
wierd.  I have split rear chrome bumpers, so it would look even more wierd.
I'd like to see it though.

Does anyone know if this is still available, or does anyone have any drawings 
of a make-your-own or has anyone done this.

To rephrase : does anyone know anything more about this device.
