The one I had in mind for the most absurd accessory doesn't have any "bling". Big bling will be in the next post.
This one was advertised to prevent the rear end of a big American cars from skidding when cornering. Probably needed one for panic braking as the rears would lock up and the car would start to rotate.
Could not find a picture, so imagine:
A heavy steel pipe, some 4 feet long and maybe 5 inches in diameter. This was mounted sideways under the rear bumper and contained:
A massive cast iron cylinder in the center of the pipe with coil springs on either side.
I guess the theory was that the weight of the internal cylinder acting on one spring or the other would counteract..............well you get the idea.
But all that extra mass at the extreme rear would not be good.
