    My brother and I are sitting here wondering if it is true that a Grand Prix had the longest hood.

    How about since the 1950's ... where would I find the length of hoods, trunks, cars so we could find out which was longest?

    Well, I had a '76 Ford Elite back in the mid '80's and that hood was about 78 feet long (it seemed).

    Longest I've painted would be a Lincoln Continental Mark 3 or a early 70s Cad Eldorado..
    That it is!

    Going by the 1950's and newer thing, how about the '74-'76 Cadillac Fleetwood?
