What rims are they? I guess it's getting attention for Volvo's, not the sort I personally aim for, more the approval of the Gronks who follow the latest trends sort of attention. Does it pull the chicks?

What rims are they? I can barely see them, but they look ok, 5 spokes?

That really works. The louvers and the late model trunk make that rear tuck look extra sweet. That's a good thing.

The first thing I thought of after seeing your car was how it reminded me of other cars I've seen. That's a bad thing.

I had the idea to do this based on an olive-drab Camaro I saw on Craigslist many years ago. My car's paint is too good to be painting flat-black though. My next project will probably be another 240 done up this way (since realistically a 16vt project will take infinitely more time than a can of semigloss and a steady hand)

I've thought that paint job was retarded ever since my highschool buddy painted his old boxy cavalier up like that.

Retarded, but at least not overdone, then.

Retarded and overdone now. Straight flat black woulda looked better, if the wheels weren't also black.

I like warplane based motifs, even on cars. :nod: Good work.
That being said the car could use more detail in the photos, especially in the wheel area (neutral gradient filter, if you're not already using one? The buildings exposures look good). Upping my gamma gives me a bunch of noise in the dark areas. The rusted hood I would do without, but if it makes you happy then you don't need anyone's approval anyways.

lol thanks WW2 warhawks :wtf:

Actually the P40 got the shark mouth motif from the Germans first:

Nice job, looks pretty mean, and I am starting to like the matte/satin black thing. Dont know if you were planning on adding eyes, I would say no to them myself. The headlights are the eyes to me, perfect placement for them and everything. :twocents:

Most people that are out there in real life haven't seen the BMW. Even so I kinda like it but the hood needs something. I would have done the Volvo logo on the hood in rust and left the rest.

At first I really didn't like the look, but I think I'm a little biased after seeing the BMW done previously.
I like it better now though. Personally I would drop the logo for the Swedish Air Force (below) on one or both of the rear quarter panels to set it apart from the BMW.

Sooooo sweet, usually oversized wheels look horrible on tbricks 240's, but there is something about that whole car, Love it! This is also one of the nicest photos of a 240 you can get, where the rear door meets up with the quarter panel, I love those curves then add those sweet louvers and BAMMM!

as much as i hate to say it, i do like the look. maybe its because i dont spend long enough trolling the web but ive never seen the teeth done on a car before.

only thing i hate is the blacked out lights from the point of view of another driver trying to see if you indicating or not. personally id put some of the full clear indicator lenses on. i always think that it would be a good way to be shift blame for an accident onto another car because its light were illegally modified
