It should be noted that luggage racks are functional accessories, especially on convertibles, where trunk space is usually limited. However, in the Great Brougham Epoch, where any chrome addition was welcomed with opened arms, luggage racks became highly ornamental items. Apparently, that isn’t so for this Beacon Hill Bimmer owner.
Unlike the very integrated, almost spoiler-like luggage racks of yore, form follows function in this removable example. Who knows what the owner actually uses it for, but it must be somewhat important. Any guesses? Del Griffith’s trunk maybe?
