The above 3 questions...hmmm.

#1 - for me a toss-up between Chevelle with the functioning cowl induction flapper and the Cutlass dual hump 442 hood with open scoops. '73 GTO is an interesting twist....but the car should have gotten a Shaker , like the '74 GTO.

#2 - '63-65 Chevy or '62 Bonneville/Catalina

#3 - in order for me...'73 GTO/Lemans, '73 Laguna S-3, '73 Grand Am in a pretty tight battle that could change day-to-day then a good ways back to 4th place '73 Cutlass... and a mile back to '73 Buick Century just blah.
I get stumped on best hood. My sentiments exactly on the 73 and 74 GTO. I put a 74 GTO hood on my 71 Ventura.

But, me being me, in '73 A-body Grand Prix has it. If it had 73 GTO scoops. Hey, now see theres an idea, GTO hood middle section on a GP.

73 Monte ain't too shabby. We had a 73 Laguna in high school and for me it might be behind the Monte.

The 68-74 X body has fewer features to play with but some of them are really cool looking.
