    Such as a "Pro Stock" this:

    Or a GM-based Cowl Induction this:

    Or the Thunderbolt-style 'tear drop' this:

    There was a mustang at my local track with a cougar-style, wider hood scoop with a center finger support.... (Poo, I couldn't locate a pic of one for this post......but anyways) .... I thought it looked good on it.

    I'm kind of partial to the cowl scoops myself.

      There is no doubt - KV, your '69 hot rod with the cowl scoop is one sweet-looking ride!

          I agree! Toyota totally copied the Mustang fastback lines. Even the tail lights screamed Mustang.

            I remember when I was working at a dealership in the late seventies and I got a RO to look over, assess and ready for the used car line a Toyota. I walked out expecting to see a Corolla or something like that and found the car was a beige Celica. My daily driver at the time was a maroon with black interior '70 fastback. (What we called them back in the day, nobody I knew ever called them Sportsroof) with a 302/C4. Sweet, sweet car. As I walked up to the beige tackymobile I remember thinking 'What in the hell is this? They totally ripped off the Mustang fastback!' It wasn't until months or years later that I read in magazines other people felt the same thing too. I approached it from the rear so the first thing I spotted were those taillights, these guys weren't even trying to hide the fact that they were copying the Mustang, in my opinion.
