    Yngrodder said "My sedan I like the look of the hood,"
    I say " That thing is just right"
    I was ready to say no sides but,with top. After seein' yngrodders sedan that is spot on. I now say it depends on the car...

    Top and sides, I just really like the long, lower look it gives. It's kind of funny though, my banger motor is pretty cool, but I like to hide it under the hood.

    Nice,
    Your sedan looks great.....
    Cars have hoods. They look finished with hoods. Hotroding is about going fast. If you can make your car look good thats a bonus. as far as showing off your motor......why advertise?
    Just my opinion.

    Im running the coupe with no hood at the moment, but will have to put it on when the weather turns (top only), the Roadster will get a full hood.
