    //////Louvers//////

    Whats a Hotrod or Jalopy without them...Plain and Hotter (temperature hot). They're functional and add something. They are a part of design and function in Aviation, Automobile and many other types of production. So post your louver madness, subtle or over the top. Its a natural around here.

    I think I've punched louvers in nearly everything I've owned! ...But never in a 'Custom'.

    A friend of mine, 'Halibrand Jack' bought a '56 Chevy when they came out, (San Jose) a couple of months later planted a 354 Chrysler Hemi in it, and louvered the hood AND DECKLID, 300+ in the decklid.
    In '56, this was making a huge 'statement'...Jack told me to look at the rows...when I did, I saw they were staggered. (every other row was punched between the next, so if the louvers in the first row were at 0, 1.5, 3, etc., the second one started at .75, 2.25, etc.)
    Jack said it made them look like there were more.

    Look at it for a minute and all you saw were louvers. Look away and they remained indelibly in your sight window. Always the smartass, I said it probably confused police in close pursuit.
    There was an uncomfortable silence...:D
