The AMT Ford 49 Coupe that i built came with two scoops. I used the second one with some scratch styrene to conform it to the new hood.

At this point all that's shown is the addition of the scoop, but just that has me interested! The scoop looks prefect like it should have come that way from the start.

I remember around the time this movie came out I think Hot Rod magazine did a small article about the car but I just did a search on the internet and couldn't find it and my stack of old magazines is long gone. Nice start on a cool movie car, can't wait to see the rest.

Awesome car. Remember the Hotrod issue, the car had a small block chevy with a B+M 144 supercharger with a nitrous kit also! One of my favorite movie cars. Great idea!

After some researching i decided to completely modify the hood scoop and made it from scratch styrene.
I think this is more accurately with the movie car.
