    Needs an L-88 scoop, the flat hood looks out of place with the rest of the body mods.

    those rear tires are definitely small as they're L50-14 basically a 295/50-14 tire which is 26.5 tire 11.60 inch wide . I would have gone with a N50-15 in the rear and it would have looked better. I'm digging those clean looking Cragar street super tricks and the Cal-custom valve covers

    Yes it is.....but it has been molded in. Originally it was intended to just be bolt on.

    I would love to find one of these kits!

    This is what I see when I look at the white car for sale. It just needs the right wheel and tire combo to get the proportions right.

    Um, not really. I see a Big Lots version of the IROC car you posted. The wheel flares look like something that would be on a crummy old pickup with running boards, making it look like a cheap hovercraft.

    I would say the fit and finish is better on the show car. The only difference I see is that the air dam is blacked out on the race car, and the air dam on the show car is molded into the flairs and painted body color. I'll agree the flairs on the show car don't transition (taper) to the body as well as the race car.
