    So i'm pretty bored with my hoodscoopless celica, and since i'm removing small surface rust on the hood anyway i thought i should invest in a hood scoop.

    Now, i saw some cool ones @ summitracing, but they're just for looks and don't actually have any function. So i searched locally and found a mercury capri hoodscoop, it's 27"x37" the guy said. Now that's like almost going to cover my whole hood.



    I know, they look like squares. :lol:

    Any ideas? They probably won't even fit though, haha.. just bored with my plain hood. :D

    p.s. - i dont like the headlight vents, har har har :p

    i liked it because it was square, i think the celica gts is a pretty boxy car already.

    That scoop looks like its molded from the hood.

    esraceing is king for the hood. I love that hood... I have been so tempted to look into that, myself. It makes the car look faster... lol ;) You just have to put some mesh behind it, so you don't catch any birds in it... lol

    i actually don't think that would be too bad but i'd have to see it on the hood.

    That would look GREAT....the front of the celica is square, the headlights, the grille....why not the hoodscoop??

    IMO the st185 scoop doesnt match because it's too round....

    Interesting whether the 4th gen is more square or round and for that matter, whether or not a squarish scoop or a rounder scoop is more compatible.

    When I look at a 4th gen, I see it as an angular-shaped car with sharp creases but with curves that blend and disappear together seamlessly, depending on which angle it's viewed at. Maybe that's why I can't stop staring at it after I've parked it and am walking away, haha :wink:

    haha to each his own... or whatever.

    I'll still have to go check it out and see how it would sit on the hood. xd

    I think that the 4g celica is beautiful... Not too square, and not round and fruity looking... Most cars in the 90s looked like cartoons, to me, anyhow... And cars now, are kind of reverting... If you look at the 7th gen celica, does it not have some reminiscence of the 4g? Look at their lines. I think so anyhow... And they look a hell of a lot better than 6th gens... I really wish they would have done a 7th generation convertible...

    Back on the subject of scoops, which is where we were... I think, that if anything, a small square scoop would look nice, but something with subtle round lines, would look beautiful... :)

    HAhaha, fruity looking, you crack me up!
    Ever see the Ford Probe? It looks like a rip-off of the 4th Gen Celica HB.

    I love the styling of the 4th gen. It has some very interesting lines, and like you said Rick, it's difficult to stop looking at. The hoodscoop would look awesome.

    As an aside, I've had one person confuse my car for a 1st gen Probe. And it will never happen again.

    Yeah, ford really ripped that design off... lol The ford probe was a POS... Anyone who owned one, hated them, and they were a cheapened version of the 4th gen celica. The anal probe, I mean ford anal probe, looked just like that also... An anal probe... Anyone who bought one was anally raped when they got their first tune up bill, or first part replacement...

    Something that makes me wonder why people would think the probe looks anything like a 4th gen celica, is that they are slightly higher off the ground, but the body looks like it was squished in a press... Ah, some resemblance, I guess... Also, didn't the probe, not even have a grill? lol :roll:

    haha, so i went to check it out today.
    Ugh, got convinced out of buying it. It would make my car look too..... "muscular" for a car with only 130~hp :p

    It covers about from the window spray nozzles to the head of the lights.

    pretty big.

    Too much modifications need to be done to form it to my hood, and it's fiberglass so you cant really cut it or the strands start to split.

    O well, i should work on my basics first, like my sunroof leak, har har har
