Yeah, I was wonding if the 1980 El Camino had a cowl induction hood. Me and my buddy are redoin his camino and i'm thinkin that the car would look pretty badass with a nice new hood. And what exactly does it look like? for some reason i got this picture of a 1970 Chevelle SS cowl induction hood in my head, but i doubt thats what the El Camino one looks like.

No cowl induction hoods on the 5th gen Elkys.

A simulated hood scoop, bolt on, could be ordered on the Choo Choo Customs El Camino SS (1983-87).

There are a couple of nice after market "high rise" hoods available for the 5th gen Elkys from Honest Charley and other ECC vendors. Look at the member cars (5th gen) for some good examples of these hoods.

Check this out:

This one is steel but there are also fiberglass ones that can either bolt on or pin on.

elkyss, i consider that to be a cheap shot. you tell him to look at this "hood" and your pics don't show one at all. are you cruising for votes for the calendar? just wonderin'.....

ElkySS was just saying look at the 5th gen section to see examples of these hoods... And there are 2 examples, 2nd row, and 3rd row... 8-)

That's a link to the 5th gen Gallery not the Calendar section.
