IMG_6848Here’s a shot of a car you all should know, albeit only a snippet of said car. Still, from the little information provided you should be able to glean its identity as the feature detailed is iconic and unique to that one model. Make and model please, extra points for the engine. All to be revealed in a later post.

    Shot in the dark. 69 Road Runner, 440 Six-Pack?

      But the Air Grabber hoods were all black weren't they? Hrmm…

        In retrospect, my car guy license should be revoked.
        Also I appear to be talking to myself.

          This is the funniest exchange of the day, and it only required one person!

    I'm torn. I was thinking Saab Sonett iii (with a V4) but I think it's an Iso Grifo (Ford 351 or Chevy 427)

    franchitti27 deserves credit for helping me, but I believe it's an Iso Grifo 7 Litri with the Corvette L71 engine.

      I think you're right, 'neerd. Looks like you and franchitti get to split the chicken dinner.

      Wow, quite the interesting scoop there. More of a plateau really

    I guess it could also have the 351 Cleveland engine.

    First thought was a grabber scoop from a late-sixties/early-seventies Mopar…but the only thing that confuses me is the line at the top left corner of the photo(it gives me the feeling that the scoop is not in the center of the hood), and the fact that I can't see the other end of the "scoop" which makes it appear longer than a grabber scoop, soooo…I gots nothin'.

    Congratulations on your prolific work here. I must admit I have popped in a read a good number of your blogs but I have no idea how to post a response over there, so I’ll tell you now how good you are at describing the stuff your at – I must admit I find it insightful to read your blogging. Keep up the good work. 🙂
