It's a nice idea but not practical in my case since doing this isn't legal
for the class I'm competing in ... besides, why cut up a perfectly good
steel hood when Todd Candey can sell you one made from carbon-fiber that has
a Quattro Sport vent molded in?  Not only will this help get the heat out
but it'll also take some weight off the front end...

Actually, I've had my eye on the ones GM used on the Eurosport version of
the Lumina for my 200q ... if I ever find one of these in a salvage yard,
I'll probably buy it.  Hmmm ... I wonder if Todd is making a hood for the
Type 44 chassis cars?  :^)
