It was a top grill block, between the headlights.

there was a guy that did that. his screen name was hateful. I have to admit, it made is car....unique.

I would assume that it would be better to go a different route than that. I like to look at what the guys that are in the top 10 list are doing to get there. none of them have a pointy nose.

I haven't heard from hateful in a while. he has a cavalier similar to mine but with 4 doors.

I thought it was cool. The pointed nose on his car was red, looked like the car was sticking its tongue out at you.

I used wire mesh from a garbage can I bought at a thrift store, so some air could get through. I used the election sign to smooth from my front bumper lip to just behind the front wheels.
Between the 2, my car runs cool enough, and is more aerodynamic.
