    Have you ever seen an F-Body with a reverse opening hood, or is it just an idea you thought of??

    Because I can't say I have ever seen one...

    Yea, I think it would be pretty cool. Reverse open hoods look great when the hood is popped, because you can see the actual hood instead of the inside of it.

    Looks like you're showing off when its open, instead of broken down lol

    They do sell a kit, I'll have to look around to find it again. As I recall it's pricey, and good luck doing any work without taking the whole hood off!

    Thats True

    You would problably have to take the hood off in order to do this.

    I found an auto loc reverse hood kit, but its a universal kit - so i guess alot of customizing has to be done?

    Oddly enough.... the California Camaro is in this months CAMARO magazine. It was the concept car for the fourth gen Camaro. It HAS a reverse opening hood!!!!!! Too bad that idea didn't make it into the production model
