Boss 351

I like #3, ties it in with the 70's model.

I like #3 a lot, however the original design is pretty cool. The thing I would have done differently is that, instead of the amber lamps in the grille being just decorative, I would have had them be operable amber driving lights, maybe with a separate switch to operate like the fog lamp switch on earlier cars.

"Often thought Ford should have gone with a more aggressive front grille design...."



-I wanted something more mean looking too, which is why I changed my front end to look like this.  I've always liked the '73 grill, so I adapted one to my '71 and made my version of a "cobra" grill.  I used thin gauge metal to block off the inner lamps, then covered them in a silver carbon fiber.  I left the trim off the grill to give a blacked-out look, then capped it off with LED headlamps.  Much more aggressive than OEM I think ;)
