Re: April 2017 Mopar of the month




I knew when I made my selection of hood scoop that I would get some grief over it. Yes the thunderbolt was the enemy for us Mopar guys, but the racers had a begrudging respect for them. They were tough to beat. Being a bit of a rebel I wanted something that would set my car apart from  the usual Mopar scoop.  The Point is, my car was to bring back the nostalgia of the era. These thunderbolt scoops were found on all kinds of cars and instantly identifies with that time. Not only the hood scoop , but the method of getting  cooler air to the carburator.  I will connect the intakes to the air cleaner, because with out that I will simply have hood clearance  and a way for engine heat to escape.  Notice, that Mopar and others came out with their own version of the same idea of cooler air. ... Sooo, I will ruffle the feathers of both Mopar and ford fans and who cares about chevys..Heh-Heh   I probably will never win trophys at shows that are judged by the participants  but my enjoyment comes from the folks that " get it"     BTW  I do have the finished and painted stock hood .............................MO

I was a MOPAR kid on the dragstrips back then, and the Thunderbolt hood scoops were "THE ENEMY!!"  Still kinda feel that way. 

IMHO, the "right" scoop for a classic MOPAR is that year's Super Stock one.  Which ABSOLUTELY does NOT dis the work and love

that went into this months MOPAR of the month.  It's a beautiful car!!

One of these days, my 64ragtop will sport a '64 SS scoop over its' warmed up LA small block. 

As I've said before: "Your car, Your money, YOUR CHOICES!
