Not many original paint Grotto Blue cars around. Looks great, but needs matching blue wheels IMHO.

Your car, your opinion is all that matters. Looks great either way!

Yes sir 68kiwi, and welcome from the NEW Z. And love your car, and your choice to signature it with your flavor. Your car your choice. Like mines, 69í L78, with painted steelies(XT) and dog dish caps. But it being an X66 car, real big block I too have a flavor of not painting the rear tail panel black, and painting it body color! Love my Burgundy Maroon, yes even the rear tail panel Burgundy. In my 51 years of owning, never seen it with the blacked out rear tail panel. Was it a special ordered car, and ordered like this really donít know. Maybe another forum issue to yet be discussed, just sayin, not sure. Thanks.

Might not be by the book, but the black wheels look good with the black vinyl top. Enjoy it. I can't tell by the picture, is it RHD?
