Nope. This is completely normal. You see, some people suffer from a condition called ricer logic. This man clearly has a bad case of it.

Any car guy at a show will be able to tell if it's fake.

Yeah, this has been going on for years. People used to have big ol' fake GMC blowers sticking out of their hoods.
It seems like a lot of work just to look fast when, if they really applied themselves, they could actually BE FAST!

I had no idea people did this. Just asked a friend from Cali and he said he's seen it quite a few times. My mind is blown. No pun intended

Sometimes it's just better for a show car to leave the hood down. And all the time it's better for a stock, heavily produced car to not get entered into shows.
