    They won't. And I thought on modern cars the turn signals have to be visible front and side? Correct? The Mercury Cougar in the mid-60s had staccato turn signals. How neat would that look on the back of a coupe!! Four on each side, each a different color. What fun.

    Like the old T Bird! And how about a "power dome" un the center of the hood!
    I need to get my pencils out and do a Chop Foose drawing

    Like this..... i was quite shocked to see this since it’s on an actual car! The car has triple Weber’s and this is the air box. Surely gets clean cold air, but at quite a cost.

    That is seriously fugly !
    And functionally it’s also a pretty poor design.
    They’re should balance out the look with a side pipe on the driver side

    1965 Riviera Gran Sport clam shell lights and custom billet grills on a E9 may be really cool.

    I suspect that they will be. I will DM Benny’s‘s email address. If he does not reply let me know and I will talk to him directly. Please make him an offer :) Are these good wheels?

    My most sincere apologies. I was not keeping track of who were the assholes and who were the nice guys. I do appreciate the fact that I created a lot of interest and conversations behind my back nonetheless. Hopefully this conversation and thread can be much nicer and lighthearted.

    @oneills
    PS perhaps you are the one who doesn’t get it now. I encourage you to continue your private conversations if that is the case. I am just sharing some interesting information about the car we all love. I’m not sure what you’re doing but it sounds awfully childish. Now run off to your room and talk about me, again… Ladies start your conversations.

    Part of the appeal of the E9, for me, are the smooth lines of the car.

    if he wants cold air for the carbs, put in a real cold air box and maybe do a NACA duct in the hood. Ie something that has a little harmony with the overall shape of the car.

    I also think side exit exhausts are nice, and one of my cars has a single side pipe exhaust. But on an E0 a racing style a slant pipe aft of a center muffle with just the tip exposed is more attractive.

    Oh my, shudder away. Note that most of these pages are from the responses. My posts are limited to simple videos and responses when called for. If you don't like this thread, or have problems reading more than a line or two of text, you don't have to read it. Not my car, just sharing someone else's project. If you'd rather I not share, that's fine with me.
