    I have a crappy windshield antennae. Every Chevy I've been in that has had one, the windshield was cracked; and mine became worse from some airing out and now I have to replace the windshield. Here's what I want to do, I want to buy a flexible FM antennae and mount it on the roof, the reception shouldn't get any worse should it?

    Well, a rubber antenna is not going to perform well. I just bought a new to me 85 crew cab dually (chevy) and it had a windshield antenna. I replaced it with an amplified antenna, it works great. I know that Metra makes the antenna, however I cant remember the model number. If I can remember to I will check on that 2morrow.

    I think I know the one you are talking about. It sort of has wings and mounts like between the mirror and windshield? I was looking at a flexible, short antenna a little while ago, it's amplified and made for the banzai car crowd, the name is Zendar. I'm just kind of wondering how good it is.
