Often I hear vette members talking about a stinger hood. I guess I am curious as to which one this refers to. I bought another hood that sometime in the future I plan to put on the car. I know which one i like but I usually see them on the 67's. So I was wondering who might have a picture of a stinger hood. For that matter lets see any picture of a vette hood with a scoop of any type. Thanks, Rodney
So I guess if I want the stinger hood look I have to change to a newer longer hood that eliminates the wiper door. Darn! I didnt want to do that. And I guess I would have to find a hood that already has the scoop on it because no one makes a stinger scoop alone. I already bought another hood so I need to find a scoop to fit on that one. Suggestions? Thanks Rodney
Wouldnt have to mess with the paint job, but just paint the new hood / scoop to match. Have plenty of the paint left over but it looks like it wont happen since it may require the removal of the wiper door. Of course since I dont have it on yet who knows. Only time will tell now. Rodney

What really makes the whole "Stinger" hood work is the bulge down the center of the hood. Without that, all you have is a Cobra-Jet scoop on a Corvette hood. Yup...same basic design as the Cobra Jet scoop ion the Musturds of the late '60s.
