    While a little tall for my taste, the hood is liveable with weld wheels, would look terribly wrong on a lowered car with 17's or 18's.
    I'm not digging the racing stripes though, kinda wierd just having them on the hood and not the rest of the car.

    Awesome truck! Yeah, I'm not a fan of the hood, either. But I dig the rest of the car. Nice find!

    You mean to tell me that people on the internet are opinionated? :nono:

    Toxic, you got a sweet car at a sweet price. Be HAPPY! Even though I wouldn't put a cowl that high on my car I like it on yours.

    Don't say that if you don't want honest opinions haha.
    People have different tastes. Some people like it, most don't. My reasoning, its just too tall. Limits the view from in front of you and it doesn't seem necessary. Just my opinion, but who cares what others think, its your car, your taste.

    For the record, i don't think anyone's opinion on the hood diminish the fact that at $2500 that car was a steal. Hell, i bet some would have bought it for nearly that without a drivetrain.

    Yeah thats what i thought when i found it. Most cars in my area arent in that good of shape, and it seems people want a fortune for them. So i hoped on this when i found it. Still needs alot of work, but hey, its a start right?

    Being it is set up for drag racing, is it by chance a prior salvage title or salvage? Its still a good deal, but maybe that is partially why the PO let it go for such a low price? It doesnt appear to be a rust bucket, so either he is loony or was being honest for that reason. :shrug: I owned a prior salvaged '89 GT, and it was a great car that I thought was an awesome deal at $3200!

    No its not a salvaged title. And the guy i got it from told me the few things it had wrong with it. Needed the radiator replaced, and a tail shaft seal, both which he had. And it was a three core aluminum radiator as well. The battery was dead as well, but i figured those were all minor in my book. He lived three hours away, and even met me half way in the rain. Couldnt have asked for a better person.

    I think it's the stripes and headlights throwing everybody off about the hood...It looks like I have the same size hood, but it doesn't look completely out of place on my car. That doesn't change the fact that I would still rather have a stock hood, It's just not high on my priority list.

    Same here on the headlight....seems they all got low(China)build quality no matter the cost as well. Is there any decent replacements aside from stock you guys know of?
