Looking for a place to buy 80's style forward facing hood scoop

I would like to find the old style forward facing hood scoop like pictured below. They came on the early 80's GT. I would like to set my car up similar but I want to make part of the hood black but anyways..

I found one on ebay once was a reproduction that I put on my old 1990 lx but i cant seem to find one now.. I am going to add the spoiler too but I have seen some of those but if you seen cheap spoilers I would take that information tto! Thought maybe you guys had seen them somewhere? Any help would be great...

That's alot of money for a cheap repop.
No studs or grille included either...

I would keep an eye out at u-pulls and on craigslist.
The originals pop up now and again for far less money.
My son gave $20 for his at a swap meet, and picked up a spare at the u-pull for the same. Another came up in a regular junkyard a couple days ago, and a friend tried to get it, but they think it's made of gold. The guy wanted an offer, he got $20 as an offer, but said he was thinking more like $50. He says he'll take less if it doesn't sell quick...

They told me about this, and it's a yard I have never been to, and now will never go to. The ones I visit treat you much better.

The only thing I don't like about this 'scoop' is that it provides nothing but dead weight on your car.
No added hood clearance and no air intake for either cooling or performace.

Yes Vert, thanks for the link I saved that site as well.. may need some things there!
I agree Ratio the price is very stiff just for looks.. I think I may remove the grill on the 2001-04 scoop if I can find one cheaper... It is very close to the old style and by removing or cutting the lower part of the grill I am pretty sure Ill have the same look I want with a scoop thats much easier to find..
Thanks guys!
