Community Question: Period correct accessories for a perfect restoration?

The question isn't about adding vintage memorabilia (like tapes/records or die cast models) to your car, or even those Time Out dolls seen at car shows. What I want to know is what period correct accessories have you added to your car to make it look like you were Hot Stuff back in the day.

 

My choice for a period correct accessory? A Fuzzbuster II with woodgrain that matches the stuff in my '72 Continental Mark IV. It was only $20 on eBay (free shipping too!). And if you were wealthy enough to have this car and a radar detector back in the 1970s, you certainly made a statement that very few could make!

I remember them being on cars as late as the 70s and 80s.
