If the primary latch isn't properly engaged the hood could pop open. Am I missing something? When was the last time you failed to engage the primary latch? Wouldn't the hood not being flush with the fenders be a big clue?

DownDaRiver: I love the way they word that kind of statement.
"May not have been installed"
Well, do you have a room full of cases of latches that didn't get installed or not.
Everything is ordered by demand. Either you never got them, or you did, but didn't use them.


Ask the UAW boys. If they're not too stoned/drunk after lunch break, that is.

Wait, I learned from GTA that if you just accelerate a little bit, a popped-up hood will detach, fly off, and you'll be on your merry way with no change in aerodynamics.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: Would it be impractical for pickups to have hoods that hinge in the front?


Yes. Due to the height and size of the vehicle, working on the front of the motor would be near impossible without removing the hood. Pulling a hood and going to the trouble of reinstalling it for doing a simple waterpump replacement would double the labor. Besides you could go redneck and mount 'nascar' hood pins.

Amos Quito: Solid Muldoon: I used to own a 1972 VW Bus.

You could literally work on the engine while you were driving down the road. I know, because I did it.

Well, my Dad was driving, but still.


I had a '76. Loved it.

/VW buses will learn you to wear a seat belt


I loved it and hated it.

It had the aerodynamics of a loaf of bread.

If you ran into anything, there was nothing between you and death but a pizza pan and a sheet of glass.

And no gear shift should be three feet long. Seriously.

But I used to pack a dozen of my friends into it for great roadtrips, and had many, many awesome sexual adventures in it as well.

And those two statements are not mutually exclusive.
