Those scoops are from a 67-68 Shelby Mustang.  It was about the closest 
thing I could find that followed the lines of the quarter panel 
windows.  They are actually mounted on the wrong sides of the car and 
are also mounted upside down (dont tell anyone).  The back of the 
Shelstang scoop was cut off and fiberglass closed because the original 
is actually a pass thru scoop that sucked air out of the interior of 
the Shelby.  The inside of the scoop was gutted and made to connect to 
the pontoon air inlet.  The scoop also went thru a bunch of grinding 
and fitting to get it to fit the D body nicely.

Dennis, I do kind of remember that conversation and youre correct, if 
it was turned around it would more closely match the visual lines of 
the car, but... it would be backwards... it was that way when I got it 
and actually it bothered me to leave it backwards so I put it the way 
is was supposed to be.  Of course, I'll mount scoops upside down :~}

I hope you all enjoy my latest work in PR... a supercharged Eagle engine
and more carbon fiber.
