Geez now I'm gonna have to find time to clean the car up before you guys see it! Dang....

We're going to NHRA Spring Nationals Fri and Sat leaving the wagon home. Sunday I'll be a busy boy getting that grill on. I also have a neato Volvo storage net and Storage bin to install on either side of the rear cargo area.....

Pic Pics and more pics.

Funny thing that you mention a black grill. The other day I was driving home and I saw this green 850 Turbo with the regular grill painted black. I thought that it looked really good.

The black Volvo grill looks sharp! Question...is it gloss black or flat/matted black? My guess is matted. How did you do it?

It is a cool look, I removed mine scuffed it and had it painted Titanium grey like my trim and wheels. If you use the proper primer you can make anything stick!

That sounds like satin black.



Here's another black grille on a black car. This grille was for sale on ebay.

That ad from IPD showing those color matched grilles does not look familiar to me. Is it old or brand new - the ad.

I like the black grill on black 850 but think the black mesh is gonna look ten times better on a white 850. We'll see soon.

now if they will just make aftermarket smoked rear lenses I'd be a happy man.

By the way JWKC,
I LOVE the Supra and the 933! You have an exelent taste in cars!
I just have one question. How did the CRX (looks like a Del Sol to me) make it into the collection? Nothing against them, It just is a totally different type of car from the rest of the group.

That CRX are called Del Sol in American .That was just a Fun Car which I used to Played with and was modified back in 1993.
It was different from The US versions. It got a Power roof which Works like the Benz's SLK.And at that time That Power roof are something very special in a small compact car.!And I like small open top cars. That CRX/Del Sol Was also fun to drive

Well, If you ever consider an upgrade for your japanese pocket rocket rag top, I would highly recomend the S2000! With 240 stock hp in a 2756lb car with a tight 6spd tranny clocking 0-60 in 5.8sec. And you know there will be superchargers and turbos out for that car before you can say vrooom vrooom. just a thought...
