Fucking today! I have a 1965 Mustang Fastback that came originally with an inline 6. I decided to keep the inline 6 because a) it’s wierd, and b) I get tired of seeing the same shit at every cars and coffee. Anyway, I’ve been upgrading this thing for a while now (AL head, Fitech’d, V8 suspension, T5, etc.) and decided that I wanted to add in a NACA-style scoop and some ram air. I’ve been building my car as what Carol Shelby would have done if he had been forced to race I6s instead of V8s. Anyway, I finished it this weekend and post it to a facebook group that caters to the I6 crowd. Mostly positive, but I get two guys telling me that what I did looks too 80s, but in a very harsh way.

NACA ducts were invented in 1945! They were used in land speed cars in the early 60s and in GT350/GT500s in the late 60s/early 70s. It’s completely within the realm of possibility that this could have been used. Eff these guys.
