1972 Mach. 4V CC, TKO 600, Blue with blue deluxe interior. Coolest cars ever! :)
Nothing beats the factory stripes and hood blackout on the 71-72s. My brother paints cars for a living and said I can pick whatever modifications I want. I can't visualize anything better/cooler than the stock Mach 1 look. Of course with a built engine, big ass tires and loud exhaust!

It looks like a bra with its boobs hanging out.
Now that I like. LOL


That's one fence I wouldn't ever climb over. Nope not on my car or any car I care about. As somebody else said it looks like something on a MOPAR not a FORD.

It's my understanding that car manufacturers offered blacked out hood paint treatments to mimic what road race and sports cars were doing to minimize hood glare to the race drivers. Obviously, if one were to use his car to drag race, blacked out hoods are a mute point, and custom paint schemes are common. To me, the Machs and Bosses have a certain pedigree of image that makes me agree with the majority of you, that changing the hood paint treatment from how it was built, looks inappropriate. It's fair game though, to Photoshop ideas . Nothing wrong with having some visual fun.
