    I think the shaker gives the GTO some character. I really liked the shaker hood on the late-model Mach-1 Mustangs. Word is it is coming back on the newer Mustang very soon. The new (Saleen) Roger Penske edition Mustang has a functional shaker hood scoop (same style retro scoop used on the last generation Mach I Mustangs and first generation Mach I Mustangs) looks good.



    Here's another of my favorites - an aftermarket (current) Charger shakerhood scoop (a retro version of the an old classic):

    I like the shaker on the Mustang; it looks great because both it and the car are "retro."

    I also think the scoop looks good on the Charger...

    But on the GTO, it seems out of place. Maybe because the car, itself, is so mild-looking otherwise. It's so bland all over... and then there's the big scoop!

    With the other two, the cars themselves are already pretty raging; they have distinct muscle car attitude - and I think that's why the scoops work well on them...

    Just my 50 cents!

    Eric,

    Excellent point, the muscular styling of the Charger and Mustang make them look really good with a shaker hood scoop.
