Soooo hot... Great work man! What else is in store for that car before you consider it done?

Not that you're asking for advice, but I think it'd look cool if you painted the grill surround to match the paint... And, any chance you have a picture from the rear?

I have some 480 side markers on and I'm just trying to find my prancing moose stickers. Also need to paint the spoiler and trim.

..and will be part of my new car:
(940 S2.3 1995)

They are ancient. But it still looks pretty much the same today, although it has gotten rather quicker than it was when those pictures were taken 4 years ago. Here's a few pictures from the VCOA meet in Kansas City a couple of months ago, where my nasty looking thing is uglying up the PV row:




If anything, I'm thinking of grinding off the old paint and flat-blacking it, rat rod style.

Thanks. They are American Racing Torq Thrust II's, 15X6. I'd probably do 16 inches if doing it today.
