Cool

Carl: Billy's 58 was done by the SoCal boys and they shaved the hood scoop and also customized the front bumper guards. The paint job is quite remarkable / expensive but when you are a member of ZZ Tops affordable

I saw it on display at the NHRA Museum a couple years back. Impressive , but I didn't understand why they deleted the hood scoop.

Default Hood Scoop

Totally agree with you Keith. If the T.B. didn't have it & was added on it would have been a different story.
