Side scoops/vent
#21
My opinion is that scoops are fine if they actually do something other than produce drag. Cool brakes, cool the coolant, cool the occupants, engine intake - something.

side scoops look good on the car...would love to see some more viewing angles. it's ridiculous how people are willing to put bags on their bushes in the winter so they will look better in the summer...what about how they look in the winter! sorry you have to look at that!

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic! thumb

Those aren't bags; those are the neighborhood kids.

I like it! In fact, if the paint shop I took mine to wouldn't have messed up their first attempt, mine would have had a flat black similar to your friends here.

It was actually done with Krylon Satin Black. Flat black tends to just look grey in the sunlight. I thought about doing mine in gloss blacklike yours and then putting the matte black Boss sidestripesand hood paint on it to give it a subtle contrast similar to the gloss black/satin hood lower body paint on the Interceptor. I don't think I recall seeing a black on black version of a Mach1/Boss 351. With the right deepdish wheels done in black with chrome lugs I think it would look mean as hell.

Normally i would agree, but this is something...different.

the black car is the inspiration of sorts for both of the black Mach1s in this thread. The red car is a stock version.

Nice Ride. I really like the green and the stance. You did a nice job with the side scoops and matching up to the factory body lines.
