You are correct. Ed Montini is from Arizona. However, I believe your Ed Montini works for the Arizona Republic and is not the owner of this Yenko.

I wonder why they changed the hood from the SS ? Was the SS hood not correct and they changed after they found the right one or was this just an after thought?

I'm no authority on Yenko's but from everything I've read, this is the correct hood.

Is this car the same one that is in the article on the Yenko site? If it is it was never converted so it should not have a Yenko hood would it? All the pics in the restoration thread and magazine article shows it with the SS hood. Now I'm confused AGAIN.

I think Ed put the hood on because it looks really cool. I would have done it also.

Hello guys - Ed Montini here..yes that's my car and the other Ed Montini here in AZ is my cousin, he writes for the Arizona Republic.  The car is  1 of the 6 non coverted Yenko Camaro's ....it has all the 9737 Yenko Parts ordered by Don Yenko but was never fully converted to the 427 car. 

I put the hood on the car this past fall for the MCACN show, because i really like the hood and it really enhances the car.  The SS hood is hanging in my garage ready to go back on when I desire or when i ever sell the car. 

Let me know what else you would like to know about the car - all owners of the car as still alive and one owner who did extensive racing with the car is in contact with me regularity...he provide many racing pics, time slips and great stories about the car.  All owners are from Pittsburg area (including myself) .   

Stunning car in person -

Thanks for the compliment Charley!

Thanks for your explanation Ed. I am in no way taking anything away from the car.  I have a character defect of being a perfectionist.This causes me to get a lot of egg on my face. The detail work is so meticulous the hood just caught my attention.  BTW the hood is cool.
