wouldnt be so bad looking if the hood was caressed a little more......ive actually being toying the idea of remolding a shaker to have the ram air design to it.....

ive never liked the 4th gen hoods.  they look too much like flared up nostrils.

it makes me think of that episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (does anyone even know about that show....?) where Master Shake gets fake nostrils and chin and cheeks....

Gen 4 hoods on gen 4 cars are OK -- gen 4 scoops on gen 2 cars don't exactly light my fire... :?  :?

Just my $0.02.

I was playing with ideas on ways to customize the hood on the Phoenix. Now I know what I'm NOT going to do.

I like those hoods and scoops on 4th gens, 3rd gens and even on S-10s. But that's just wrong.

I'm sorry but the 4th gen scoop deal looks glued on, no blending. it reminds me of a Vega I saw on a car lot in the late 70s with a Pro stock scoop made out of a plastic garbage can. I saw a third gen with a 4th gen hood  at the Nats years ago that was done right, it looked nice. you could see a lot of work went into it.

I can't figure out what was replaced in the tranny 1st and 2nd gear shafts? I wonder if the seller is thinking of synchros.

I like the 77s and up the way they came from the factory, leave them alone.
