They have that because 80% of the citizens of FL are on social security.

State sales tax in TX is 6.25%, cities can add up to 2% on top of that totaling 8.25%, but car purchases are only done at state rate. No state income tax here, either. :)

haha. it isnt mine. just test fitted it to see what it would look like.

i like it cause its funcional and not a stupid srt hood with a hood gap.




on the other hand. to make it flow better theres the option of painting the roof and trunk black.( or leaving the center piece black and painting the rest to match car ) but that will just take more money that i dont want to dip into as i got another project in the works wich wont get revealed till im done with it

:withstupid: The scooped hood will go with the rest of your car if it's color matched. Think of Nee (LSP's SXT). Your relatively stock car won't look right with a black roof and/or trunk

all yellow ?


& i still got a while before i get the hood, thats if i do get it. so all paint opinions are being looked at.

it would be great it someone could photo-chop it to all yellow hood & on a second chop just leave the center piece black and rest yellow. just to give an idea.

IMO i really like the hood and I think if it's color matches it will look good and if the roof and decklod os painted balavk with would look good.. Win win on the color scheme.

No, he had a different hood altogether. But the black and yellow was pukalicious.
