I've often wondered why more of these kits haven't been converted into pro stocks. This is one to watch. At first I thought the hood scoop was incorrect but Warren Johnson ran one very similar.

I don't think this was a popular body style or kit. You are correct about W.J. and his Firenza. I went with the old scoop because it went with the looks of the body better than the current pro stocks. The body is actually from a promo model that I found on ebay

It's funny to me to hear someone refer to the rounded/areo style scoop as "old".  :D I suppose now it is, but in '87(?) or so, this new style scoop was quite different from the more squared off scoops with predated it:

The above hood scoop was found in the original 1/24 Monogram Pro Stock kit, Bob Glidden's 7-Eleven T-bird, and would look very appropriate with the angular, non-aero lines of the early Cavalier bodystyle IMHO.

At any rate, good to see someone using the early GM J-body as the basis for a build. :)

I agree the older square hood scoop would go perfect on the car.Now everything is Outlaw/Cowl hoods,which I think look great on any car.

Ron I disagree with you. I hate the noses people are putting on the hoods of the car.

Yea but if you don't have a cowl hood,and no scoop,how do you keep the motor under the hood?A lot of guys are using those plastic clear scoops.I don't really like them.:D
