I want to keep my hood, but it limits what I can do to my engine... I've actually thought about cutting a hole, but I just can't bring myself to do it. My scoops aren't functional. I can honestly say that a fiberglass hood from a 70-75 Formula is the heaviest damn hood I've ever removed in my life. When I first found out mine was fiberglass, I was shocked! I wish mine was functional though...

I can say that Pontiac has the heaviest hoods and doors I have ever seen the heaviest was a 1974 Grand prix hood

I don't know man, that back hatch on my 88 formula with the big glass window would take three people to take it off and put it back on.
