Yes, but 1 of 2 things have to be satisfied. 1- it is color matched, 2- its on a rare black Impala SS. But, for a wagon, it just adds to the cool factor. I still like the full wheel covers and color combo of your wagon.

Color matched won't be an issue, although I'll probably wait until I find a less nice SS grille before executing the plan.

Ah. Now I see the box ornament. Looks good. I tried it on my '94 I had. I didn't like it. I got stupid questions like, "why do you have a boy scout "thing" on your hood?"

I like the hood ornament but not the dual bowties. So far I'm happy with it, but if I was getting dumb comments like that I'd probably start disliking it.

I thought the grille just gave you better handling and the ornament was -90 hp.

You already have -90hp cuz its a wagon Hahaha. Swap those UGLY mirrors for the 95/96 ones and that'll get you 89.9hp back iirc.....
