I have a cowl hood....well two of them, but I love the stinger. If Lance wasn't so cheap, I'd swap him a cowl for one of his stingers. :eek::yes::devil:

I'll probably just get another 2 1/2" cowl hood so that i can save some money to put towards...other parts that need to be replaced from the damage

If you want to be like everyone else get the cowl, I have an L-88 on mine so Id go for the stinger it looks cool with the body lines and will get your car noticed more.

My vote is for the Cowl hood. I think it lends to the body lines of your Nova. Just one man's opinion.

I personally would have one of each painted to match and swap between each whenever I choose. I have a stinger and the stock hood for my car.

Are the stinger hoods made in steel or just fiberglass? If they are only in fiberglass,, then I would get the steel cowel hood... It takes alot more work to get fiberglass hoods to look good and fit. Just my opinion........

IMHO, it boils down to the period that you are trying to convey. If your going "current", "I want what everybody else has", then go with the cowl. If you going old school and unique, go with the stinger. :eek:

If my 68 had a big block I would have gone with the Stinger, I might still go that way.
I got a steel 2 1/2 cowl but the back of the hood for about 3 inches on both sides of the cowl does not have the right curve and dips under the cowl panel lines. So if your buying one just because it might need less work......
Just get what you like.
