Phantoms of the night

Some people are smart enough to know that Phantom Grills are a passion of mine. I Fucking love them.

Headlights are often a sore point in a designers vision of a vehicle. Though in many cases that add character, and personify the visual of a vehicle, the identification of a face from eyes can sometimes pull the appeal away from driving a ‘machine’.

I’ve loved Phantom grills for longer than I can remember. I used to dream of mini trucks driving around with fancy headlights hidden away by little chrome slats. Eventually the love flourished enough courage to build my own version.  I used two Corolla grills to make this one on my own car one day.

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited to stumble across this VW golf Phantom grill made by Orciari!
