    Freakin Pedro has been bleeding me dry on my yardwork. He is now too "Americanized". Gotta find another illegal before Trump puts the wall up.

    No it's not. Just another person with bad taste.

    Yah, there's some kind of PepBoys stik-on bling going on there.
    Looks like a row of five zoomy header tips.
    Maybe it's got a Viper V10.

    I kicked around the idea of a Hemi hood scoop for my 65 Fury.I decided against it, and am going to go with a twin snorkel and pick up air through the core support.
    I read somewhere that at XXX miles per hour, the drag from the big scoop was around 35 HP. If they made a a fiberglass hood for a 65 it would be a different story.
    Twin non functional hood scoops for looks? Fail.

    I think certain Slabs can get away with a Max Wedge type of scoop.
    I said "certain". As in NOT in a Plymouth VIP 4 dr sedan...

    Please notice that I did not say Fury VIP... :D

    I haven't gone away just lurking in the shadows. I had the scopes painted white because the black was just to much. I would have kept her if I had more space to store it. The car was sold to someone in Min. and they rebuilt the 4 speed and had it on ebay. The bid reach just over 8k for it but it didn't sell.

    Yep Rush you are correct. It is, or was in Brainerd Mn. I looked at a 73 Road Runner the guy had for sale. The Runner was a pile as well as his 68 Cuda drag car. He did tell me about his 4 speed C body but it was not at his home as it was in storage for the winter. I will have to see if its still at his house this summer as its on the way to our family cabin.
