Diggin the Antique pics.
Hood light? You're assuming the Zilla is going to break down at night on a deserted road
....to tell you the truth..I found my hood light kinda piddly...my 97 doesnt even have one, nore does my Alero.
You could always use the Pontiac Spot light that comes in the Acc Kit.

The OEM hood light is a joke. It'* worthless for anything other than checking the oil.

I'm going back to what my Chevy trucks had. Retractable magnetic trouble lights with a cord long enough to change the rear wheels. And the main reason I'm not using the OEM light is that it'll make my next custom hood insulator (courtesy of Red Deer) much cleaner and simpler.

If anyone is interested in the process, and hasn't seen it:

That was my same question too, Adam.

Behind it is nothing but water. I didn't see a bridge in any of the other shots.

That'* a bridge over the boat ramp. The river is high right now. Just under the bridge and about 10' behind the car in that shot.

LMAO, you used THAT much gas in 26 miles?! Thats the only thing I can see wrong with that pic, but THAT isn't even logical. I zero out my trip odo when i gas up...so that would make sense to me.

And is it just me...or is that hood...a little light?

Comparison?

Or even just in direct comparison to your grille color it looks light...

Maybe just the lighting...but still looks...i dunno.

Hood color is a near-perfect match. Actually, the hood is SLIGHTLY darker than the fenders, but it takes very close inspection to see it. Just the shading/lighting that throws you off at that location and angle.

I can burn that much gas off in fewer miles than that if I want to.

Or I can get 32mpg on the freeway.
