I've never much been a pop the hood kind of person, except my wife's LS swapped Solstice. That one is fun to watch people try and figure outI don't mind the new cars if it looks like the owner is doing something non-stock to it. If its bone stock and they pop the hood whats the point? A guy had a C6 vette at the local cruise in and popped the hood and I mentioned its a great place to start and he just looked at me funny. Bu then again I'm going through alot of effort and money to make my car stock again, so who am I to judge?
