    I have never even seen em on a 4-th gen. I would bet that RKsport might have some.

    I wonder why they stopped making them? And why did GM stop putting power hatches on the 4th gens? The 3rd GEns had some cool stuff.

    Because they wanted to lose the redneck look for 4th Gen???
    (I always hated those things)

    People didn't know how to gently close the hatch and let the mechanism take over, they would keep slamming the damn thing unless they knew it was a self closing mechanism
    But they were a cool item
    Replacing one was an expensive venture too, somewhere around $300 to $400 if I remember correctly

    I loved my 87 IROC though!

    I had an 89 Iroc Convertible with the power hatch. I use to love showing it off to my friends. They were all impressed.

    Window louvers? Hmmm....Not a big fan.

    Ive seen louvers on a 2002 Z28 and a 2000 T/A....They look pretty good on a T/A...but not so great on a camaro. Plus...Ive driven that Z28 b4 and its pretty hard seeing out the back.....Honestly though....THey 4th gen has such a nice rear window....Why would u take away fromit.....that damn window is beautiful on how its shaped

    Thought those went out with leisure suits. Looks good on a retro styled car like a Musting.

    Thanks, I saw those after I posted this, but still unsure what it would look like on my Camaro. I wanted some because it keeps the sun out and I won't have to retint my rear window. Tint fades after a while and I wanted it blacker but I don't want to pay someone to retint it and I am not that skilled to do it with one piece. But I can on the sides with one piece and no bubbles. Anyways.. Yes, the old 3rd gen mustangs look good with louvers.. like a white mustand with white louvers is nice. I may not get louvers after all. I don't really like the design of the Hammond louvers for the 4th gen. but then again, its sort of hard to tell with that cell phone quality pic they have posted of that black formula. Crazy.

    And ya, I've had like 3 3rd gen's and one of them was an IROC. But I didn't have louvers on the rock.. Only I had some metal ones on a 84 indianapolis pace car that rattled like no other! haha
