Hood Options?
#1
Hey everyone, been a long time since I posted anything, been deployed for a bit. For the longest time I have wanted a ram air hood, but can't bring myself to paying for one with shipping being so high. My son helps me pick out styling ideas for the Mustang and he loves air breathers that protrude through the hood, he calls them rum rums. I was cruising eBay the other day and found this and got to thinking. I know it's my car and do I will do what I want, but would this look absolutely ridiculous on a flat hood on my coupe? I think it could be interesting, but not completely sold on the idea.

Sorry I couldn't get the picture to upload from my phone. Thanks everyone!

Depends on whether you are aiming for pro street as the look

What about a shaker? Would look ok on a flat non NASA hood

i like the looks of those scoops.. but don't forget some day u will get caught in the rain. and this scoop sitting right on top of carb with rain.. well not a good combo. have u looked at the machI scoop on the '69 or '70.

You could always just use it as non-functional, just mount it on the hood. You could also use your air cleaner base and fabricate a housing on top of it and mount the scoop on top of it for your own unique shaker scoop, to get away from rainy day problems.

Perhaps something like this from a 1971 Cougar. http://www.championmustang.com/7173-merc...284bc8e656

The price of the scoop, you could almost buy a used NASA hood. Not feeling that scoop.

This would be my preference.

I think that's similar to what was done here:

With that on the hood the engine should be able to backup the look. Wink
