My car is only bad at night, with the dark tint and me long driveway. Typically I also have to roll down front side windows in order to best see the side mirrors.

Come to think of it.. 87-91 was easy
92-99 was easy
00+ a little more difficult because I wasn't used to it. But no problem.

It'* just a matter of experience. I can back anything but a trailer anywhere. Part of my Police training (always back in so you can get out fast). I can't back a trailer to save my life, tho...

Pretty easy with tint and no spoiler. I think by far SUV'* are the easiest to back up. Some trucks can get pretty tricky

On the older 87-91 Bonnies if you had the luggage rack with the smaller wing, or an 88-89 SSE, 90-91 LE or SE or SSE with the wing it gave you a good point of reference as to where the A$$ end of the car was... There was only a few inches of car behind the wing...

The 92-99 is a diffrent story, wing or not you won't see it back there... Thats where the mirrors come in.... lol

Can the 00+ guys see the wing?
