Ok, I was on the phone with JOHN WIKOFF, who ISN'T my mistress (or one of them. My mistresses are MUCH better looking).

And that IS Bo in Applebee'* with us. And that'* a couple wiped out Margaritas in front of me. John was driving. No booze for buckwheat.

Sign up? It'* a long drive out here. But I DO have one more pair of these available.

It'* simple. The vent cutout holes are 9" off the centerline crease of the hood, and 7" in from the cowl end (windshield edge) of the hood. It'* the only logical and practical place to put them.

We'll get some shots of both cars tomorrow. John and I were just talking about wanting to see a 2000+ with them.

what is the condition of the last set (have any pics) and how much you asking?....but im not sure id do this without haveing a back up hood, im alway unsure of doing this kind of thing because i dont want to **** up and have an unfixible hood on my car and nothing to replace it with ( i think i might have some self doubt issues )

I see when I told you I was at Applebees, you got inspiration for dinner. I had the appetizer sampler for dinner.

Now I sorta like the look of those, but I would like to see a transplanted hood scoop induction from say a camaro or the raim air from a GP go into a 00+ with scoops/vents.

than your Green.

Looks like a pretty clean install. I really wanna see a pic from a distance though.

Jwikoff, there'* two places to eat in town. Shari'* (we did that Xmas night around 11 to cure the munchies) and Applebee'*. Had to do it! Applebee'* has wider aisles, so Bo doesn't block the whole restaurant.

Peter, I have one set left, they need to be stripped. These are all off Trans Am GTA'*, so they stay in the pontiac family, and they JUST fit in this location.

I do agree they look more striking on John'* white, but we have yet to see how they look with my hood fully repainted. We'll shoot a couple pics of both cars from closeup and distance today before I leave.
