Functional Hood Scoop?

I would like to start a poll to see how many Camaro lovers out there would like to see the Transformers 2 "BumbleBee" Hood Scoop offered as a factory option from GM.

This is an area that the aftermarket it likely to take over. I will be considering a functional hood if it is offered for the SS. I just worry about the appearance of a slot before the hood and a slot on the hood not looking good.

I for one, LOVE this hood. I am really excited to see what other people come up with after the Camaro's release.

My concern also...two scoops will look rather odd! You'd almost have to get the V6 facia and an aftermarkeet hood to make it look right!

mine will only be for engine bay cooling because the STS twin turbos should have the air filters in the rear, like on the vettes

options polls are getting out of control

Common sense should tell you to limit it to something within GMs control that wont spiral them quicker into bankruptcy

i agree with swifttal, these polls are getting rediculous... ITS TO LATE TO CHANGE MOST STUFF. and they are not going to because as it is, they are not doing to well in the market.

That's ok - the creator though named this "who would like to see GM..."

Would imagine that type of hood will be made within 6 months of the car coming out
