In my opinion, best looking hood i've ever seen on a wagon. Looks like they just cut it at the factory body lines and raised it up?? Man, I like this look alot.. ALOT..







What do you think??

I don't like it. Too sharp and square looking. I'll prefer the cowl on that Impala next to it.

I think it looks badazz.
I agree with Fishah about the squareness.
If that was radiused, that would be PERFECT.
Better have something EXTRA under that bigger then life hood tho

Is that a hood that is available, or did some one make it? I don't think it looks too bad

I remember when Street Trends was trying to figure out what hood would sell
They polled the ISSF & got lots of hoods posted
This was 1 of the suggestions, I think someone prototyped this
I think it was a bag job for the SLP hood anyway

Wow. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

Good idea, POOR execution! FAIL!!!!!!

Maybe a 1/2" or 3/4" rise would have nailed it. Rounded off, too. Not squared up.

^^^^^What he said^^^^^
It does not look custom. It looks hack Evil or Very Mad
You might pull that off on a boxy, but not a bubble. Sharp edges don't do anything for them.
