I remember in the 70's & early 80's there were after-market support kits for Chevy truck hoods. They sometimes folded on the edges about midway back. I didn't realize it was a safety feature though. I'm a believer in this Regal's protection in a collision. Also good to know those thick doors are there. That is one of the reason this car was/is being made usable again. After replacing that hood, at some point later, I think I'll remove the Bondo from the front part of the left fender and do a better job with better tools and products. It was a quick repair anyway. The upcoming shrinking disc (whichever version) is going to be put to work.
