    What am I looking at here?

    Am I going to get slapped if I say it looks like a GTO with a different grille?

    The very first iteration of that shape.

    But yeah, you would be correct.

    first of all, they should adjust the hood stops. the panels don't line up.

    secondly, wtf mexi-flo?

    It looks like it directs air intake through the grille, hopefully not also through the radiator. A tube+cone setup would be more precise, but at least it's not the normal intestine-shaped stock intake.
