    Could you put the grille surround on, and what would have been the hood bar, but without the mesh part? I like the cutouts, looks racy that way, but also kinda plain. I'd like to see it with just the surround on it, would help define the opening without adding too much.

    Car sits nice, I like the scoop.

    Wow... I know I'm no help, but both ways look great! I think I'd go with the grill though and remove it every few months just for fun.

    + 1 on what squablow said. It would look mean with the grill surround only to define the grill area, then the cut outs make it racy. Try it if possible.
     

  18. That's how my dad ran his... in '55 :D!

  22. I had a flip front mounted on a '55 Chevy years ago and it definitely looked better with a grille.
