Can someone educate me on black hoods? Today, when someone has a black hood, you would think carbon fiber, trying to save weight, etc. But going way back, I recall back in the late 70s, there were many hot rods from with black hoods. Like 1957 Chevy, Ford, etc. I recall one of them said, they paint the hood black because of the reflection from the paint into their eyes.

Any truth to that?
I take it that you DID NOT read this entire thread? :rolleyes:

Why does your car have the box letter Challenger emblem?
I thought the SRT had the heritage script.
As for the hood.... I like it. Absolutely love the B5. Would look good with a black hood although I think the red one is this thread looks awesome with it. Never had a red car but I'd have that one.

Unless they changed it, my 2013 SRT came with the “box letter” Challenger Emblem.

The models that came with script badging have been R/T Classic and Shaker models

all the rest have the block style lettering

B5 Blue All the Way! It is such a beautiful color too much can cause damage to eyes and brain. I recommend toning it down a bit with flat black. See attached pics. The T/A is mine and it's my favorite color. I had to throw the Hellcat in. I couldn't get for my first modern Challenger in B5 Blue, so I had to go with Billet Silver. Which looks tough, with black of course, no regrets.
