Whoo! Egg Crate grilles forever!

(Sadly, I found out the hard way they don't fit 850 hoods. I gave it to ThinAir years ago for his S70 T5M. Which got totalled. Lose-lose-lose. Oh well.)
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

iPd made one for 850s that looked really good. It hasn't been available for a long time though.

I’m really not a toy guy, but I just love these. My wife surprised me with 4 of the white/blue cars right around the time Matthew posted this thread. Then, today, my wife surprised me today with a newly released color on the 850 #14 race wagon.

I'm still waiting for the blue ones to appear. I got a handful of the white ones when they finally showed up at my local Walmart.

Last summer when I bought a part at O'Reilly Auto Supply, the clerk walked out with me, signaling me over to the trunk of his car (which wasn't a Volvo). In his trunk, though there was a gas powered Volvo 855 radio controlled car about 20 inches long. Very cool. Detailed replica.
