Hood pins were necessary on classic cars that did no have the secondary safety latch like modern cars have. To put them on your stang is paying homage to classic American muscle. Has nothing to do with ricers. Any ricers with them on are doing what they best know how to do. Being a wannabe!

from just visual aspects i personally wouldn't put them on my car unless my hood needed them or my latch system was shot and i didn't want to replace it. its all personal preference

I put these hood pins on my car cause my patch was broken and I didnt want to replace the hatch, my hood was also broken so this was the easiest way to fix it

I added them on my old gt because after 85 mph it would shake. And they look bad ***

No, I like my functioning latch... It works great on my 500hp car?

Stock hood cars with pins look kind of weird.... But safety reasons are another story.

Yeah on stock they look a little silly, anything with a cowl should have them though.
