    Here is a spy photo of the new Hellcat hood. Dodge reached back in its past to copy the 1970 'Cuda hood and made it longer and functional. Thumbs up or down? Since it is much longer than the original 'Cuda hood, many might say that it looks more like an old Firebird Formula 500 hood.

    At first glance I thought the pic. was an old Formula Firebird hood
    The Challenger hood is also alot wider than the Firebird.
    Will have to see one in person, but changes are good for the most part.

    yep, thought it was a Firebird hood. but they could have shortened the scoop area some. but we will see.

    Still a Cuda would be a nice ad to the line up.
