The Best And Worst Hood Scoops

Hood scoops! Do 'em right and your car looks like a furious, forced induction-having ass-kicking machine. Do 'em wrong and it makes the car absolutely absurd.

Like I said in my design analysis of the Subaru WRX Concept the other day, I'm a big fan of the way the designers integrated the 'Rex's famous scoop into the hood on that car. I really hope it carries over to the production version because it looks sleek, sexy and functional.

The WRX Concept seemed to be a hit for the most part. With that in mind, let's take a look at hood scoops. Show us the best and worst ones out there! Go nuts.
