Mad-mav7... has it right. They are hood pins that are required when racing to keep the hood on the car. Owners also like to add them to their street cars to get that "racing" appearance. They don't do anything that adds to the car's performance.

You can see a sample of a kit here:

They aren't tubes, they are hood pins on a wire. The pins help secure the hood at high speeds. Don't want that thing popping up at 120 mph do yah?
