What years did the Camaro have a hood scoop and was it functional?

The Z28s had hood scoops from 1978 through 1981. But in ’78 and ’79, it was not functional. It was bolted to the flat hood with the simulated opening facing forward. However, in ’80 and ’81, it was functional. The induction piece is a bolt-on piece that starts out narrow at the front of the hood (about 4 – 6 inches wide) and ends up about 6 inches from the rear edge of the hood (12-14 inches wide). At the rear of this induction unit is a door which is opened by a solenoid when the car is at or near wide open throttle. The air cleaner uses the stock lower portion, but the lid is the same diameter as the filter. A rubber gasket/seal is attached to the top edge of the lower portion of the air cleaner and seals against the hood when the hood is closed.
