I vote Comet, too. I got a set last year at the Charlotte car show that just say Powered by Ford.

I vote for some plain finned ones, keep it era looking. People know its a Comet, unless you shaved all the badges.

I like the original looking “Cobra” valve covers. Available over the counter at Ford dealers back in the day

My vote is for the Comet valve covers. But these are the ones I'm running.
