driving home from work the other night, i was sitting in the turning lane waiting for a green light, and i was a car behind a ef or el fairmont in the right hand lane.

it had a gold coloured fairmont badge on the back of it - no ghia badge under it tho.

didnt get a look at the front guards, coz i was trying to to run into fhe car infront of me!!!

is it special? is it normal? is it cusso?

ideas?

cheers guys :)

I think painting them would look a lil dodge... if they was plated then at least they would look a lil better.

il keep a lookout for the car again, and take a pic if i can to show yaz

There's a dark green or blue NL LTD around my parts with Gold trimmed badges/grill/boot gnarnish, God it is hot.

I think an EF/EL Fairmont, in black, with gold trims would look freaking sweet.
