Rear end of dirty car without rear bumper.

When my wife was 20 years old, she bought her first car, an old Gran Torino station wagon. It had chrome all the way around the front and back bumper, but the back bumper was kind of hanging off and would scrape the ground whenever the car bounced. Her brother borrowed the car one night and ¬†brought it back without that rear bumper problem. Her dad took a 2×8 floorboard, spray painted it silver, and attached it to the back of the car. He thought it would look fine from far away. My wife completely disagreed. So what do you say? Which is better? No bumper or silver painted wooden bumper?
