Default Hood vent question - GTO on Bonne? photoshop opp

*disclaimer: im not considering hood scoops for my bonneville. i dislike items which are not functional in their designed arena for the same reason i dislike texas-size spoilers.*

that said, what would GTO style hood scoops look like on a bonneville? has anyone photoshopped this? i have generously provided a picture of my car and a GTO. i dunno if they will work for photoshopping though.

my car:

IMO- you're car looks real nice now. I think that scoops might make it look low rent.

I have to admit that some of the GP hoods look damn good. We hang out with the Portland and Seattle GP'* quite often up here in the NW, and I've seen nearly all the options.

I have yet to see one that is truly functional yet. HOWEVER, if there was a replacement hood option for the 2k'*, it would pose an interesting possibility to solve the bubbling paint options.
