    71 Camaro SS - Fresh Body and Paint 2020

    Fresh out of the body shop with a new cowl hood after hood flew up while driving and caused a great deal of damage. "son of a gun" gray from late model F body used with black stripes and new torque thrust...the ones I wanted weren't available, so I decided the classic torque thrust would work.

    Great new cowl induction hood. With the intake/carb combo, the old hood had a slight dent in it from too low of clearance, so the hood flying up finally kicked my butt to put on the cowl I always wanted.
