Make (extra) custom hood with unique scoop – ‘67 BB Vette or ‘69 BB vette style?
OR SELL for $27K to $35K to the right person…
OR take apart at end of 2010 and completely make-over (spend more hobby dollars) probably go toward the “POWER TOUR” designs (without going broke) and place into the 2011 Detroit Autorama.
