Dave I agree the painted stocker on the right car is really cool looking. See pic.

Might be a good thing this is made to be a show car. Looks to me like the skull thing is connected to the carb linkage, possibly to open the skull's 'mouth' when the throttle is opened.

All very clever- until the air pressure overcomes the return spring and this thing goes screaming into the distrance, literally WFO.

Thanks, but no thanks!

The eyes in the skull are essentially air butterflys. It all works.
