Very seriously, does anyone have a information re: the relative strength of 55-56 front engine hoods? Specifically, if someone was to take a picture with a person posed on the car's hood, is there any danger in hood denting or caving in?

If the person has the prefix of "Big" in front of their name, then I would advise against it.

Kevin,

Wouldn't have anything to do with "mounting" these friends of yours on the bonnet(hood) would it?

The hood is weak at best. I wouldn't do it. THere mite be someway to support the hood while shes on it. I can't think of a good ez way to support it. Give it some thot. Maybe come up something that'll work.

Nice picture. Maybe grab one and sit her up on the rite fender peak just over the headlite and and another one on the the other side. All 4 doors open. THe Fender peaks just over the headlites are pretty strong. The 3rd one can stand in one of the open doors, arm stretched out across the top.

Got any redheads??? Red and green are great together,especialy with freckles. U have a law enforcement background if i remeber rite. So u'd have to maybe dummy up a phony doobie from a regular cigarette for one of them to smoke while other two are holding a whiskey bottle, wine bag or something like that.

Here's a pic that didn't pass. But it gives a good idea of how much better the effect is with doors open.
