Hey Mark, with the raised hood & the rear spoiler it almost gives the illusion of a chopped roof.
Awesome pics of one of my favorite cars to look at.

Yes, I want to know all about that center hood section too. I'm doing the exact same thing to my car since I have a hilborn scoop backwards-style for cowl induction.

It looks like a reverse-pancake sorta thing. Did you just cut the length of the hood on the body line and then add triangle shapes, then finish the back end off with that ducktail looking piece?
Maybe some fabbing process pics? :wave: pretty please?

That story is awesome. I've certainly had experiences like that in the booth, but it's been on customers' brand new $130 Mercedes. I found this pic through a link, and I didn't realize the scoop was so wide. I always thought it was the 10-12 inches wide like the factory body line. That's what I'm hoping for. Definitely steel, though. You've done a very nice job on your car, Hero.

Nice pics, Garey! Sometime in the last year or so Blair's painted the outside of their building, so all the cool logos and stuff are now gone, just a small Blair's logo remains.

Response to JB

The interior is 100% original. The seats don't have a crack in them ( previous owner kept the leather soft with saddle soap). The carpet is original and has always had mats. Both are Dark Ivy Gold - really dark green. It is a c4 automatic. I'll add a few inside pics tomorrow.
