Not guilty on most counts. This made me happy though:

"Hood scoops are typically reserved for the coolest cars, the fastest cars and the ones making so much horsepower that additional vents and air channels are necessary to feed the beast that lives under the hood."

My first-ever brand-new car was a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am.
Identical to the car pictured.
The 'shaker hood' featured a completely fake rear-facing air intake.
I thought it looked good at the time.
:( :( :(
The fit and finish of the plastic body bits was awful.
But it was cheap and never let me down.
