also would love to see the pics that HOUND took last night, to see whats other classics this place may hold.

We have to remember that back in the 80's coloured grills were special options that higher end Bimmers and Merc's had. If you remember the old Miami Vice, you'll notice all the top cars back then that the drug lords had were AMG such as the Hammer had body coloured grills.

This distinction back then denoted all the very high-end high-performance cars. Ofcourse it may look silly to some now but you really have to think of that era and the cars back then.
