I dont think he should be shot, but I definently dont like the wing. Everything else looks good. I like the gas tank on the car. At first when I read the title of this post I thought you were going to show some guy crushing a 242 or something lol.

Heh, that's what I thought. I'm not keen on ALL of the ricey upgrades, but hey he HAS put in a bigger turbo, intercooler, and has done other nice performance mods as well.

Chances are he probably came here once or twice to get ideas on how to do stuff. :roll:

So you want to shoot him because he is doning upgrades that we all dream about?

Did you see the last page. He is doing a 16vT with a M90. Thats so ricey! :roll:

Never seen a 760/940 front bumper on a 240 before.

Anybody notice the car has been switched from E-codes to 4 squares? I don't think 4 square headlights was ever sold in europe.

That guy did all of that in Russia. Do you have any idea how expensive that is? I think he did an amazing job, I love the updated looking front and rear valences. The wing is "eh" but its forgivable because the rest of the car looks great. Reminds me of an E36 that mated with a MB 190 from the rear and side.

Yeah, I too question the functionality of the neons on the inside, but nobody is perfect. Looks sharp. I'd drive it.

Are you smoking ****ing crack? That is a SWEET car. Look at the rear bumper and the 90+ 740 tail conversion! Look at the rims! look at the performance upgrades that are probably more then you will ever have on your car. The only thing I Can object to is the stickers down the side.

YEAAAA GO STOCK GO.

Sorry, but that is not rice.

I love it when people call something rice, that could probably pass them on the strip.

I don't agree with alot of styling these days, but if it makes them happy, it is not our business. I like it, i just think the wing is too high, lower it 1/2 way and it would look ok.

I like the car.

Volvo made spacers as an accessory...very thin, and not to fit FWD, just to bump out the wheels.

12-08-2004, 11:48 PM
Seriously, theres some awesome work there.

The engine/turbo combo could run circles around quite a few cars here, and not to mention, maybe with a little smaller wing that car would look freaking sweet. *drool* :-D

Custom front fenders, whether the "intake" things are functional or not, its still alot of sweet work. Very well done.

Its sweet.

Edit: I sort of like the front lip with splitters like that? Is that lip from a 240? And where did the splitters come from? Anyone? :-D

That is a 850 in the beginning, it was one of the cars that was built a couple of years ago by schoolkids in a car buildning contest, i think it was 8 schools that got a 850 each and modified then as they pleased for a half semester and was judged by a number of profetional car builders, that car won, bult by a highschoolclass in Karlstad Sweden

Well is that car really in bad taste?

Let's define bad taste...

It can't be done. Taste is a matter of personal opinion, so IMHO nobody could be accused of having bad taste, unless they do something considered unmoral or against society borders, like for example pedophilia etc...

I think Picasso's paintings are a load of ****, but that doesn't give his admirers bad taste.

I could tell by looking at that car without seeing the plates, that it is from east-europe/russia. It's how they modify cars there, especially the interior. In Russia that car is probably the hottest Volvo in town. And lots of resources andtime has been spent on that car, more than any of you have invested, so I think it is unfair to diss the car and the owner off just because they do something different. Well the car looks ugly to me, as I have completely different taste when it comes to styling, but for the owner and his friends, it is over-the-top cool.

And that car is not rice. Rice in my book refers to not only the car, but also the individual. A ricer is an evolved redneck, he has switched from his pick-up truck to a 1,4ltr. Honda. :-P

SwedishBrick242...
12-10-2004, 08:17 PM

All you people grumping and pissing and moaning about ooo I don't like it cause it looks ricey should honestly learn that sometimes it's not nice to share.

12-11-2004, 05:53 PM
I have to admit, I like the performance aspects of the car. The only cosmetic mod I really like is the grille, with the intake(?) in it. Though cosmetically the wing is horrible, I don't think anyone should criticize him for it considering that he put serious time into increasing the performance of the car. At least there is potential for it to be useful. I hate the way the car looks; I prefer having the interior kind of flow together, and this car looks like he just bought whatever and put it in. But, he did go all out performance-wise, and he should be commended for his efforts (but lose the stickers, it's much funnier to burn the ricers with a car that has a uniform paint job).

I think that he puts basically everyone on this board to shame.. he got parts from all over the world, those that weren't custom made.. he's done some very original body changes, some better then others, but he has a car that is very impressive, very original, and is in russia of all places.. i don't know what the car scene is like there and i don't know what sorta job he has if money is tight or not, but with the shipping that takes time and money, and all the other headaches with that sorta build it really amazes me.. I would consider that car to be liek 10x more difficult to put together then dougs awesome 242.. awesome car... and a very talented guy..

that aint that bad . . . . you need to visit Top Gear's ricer page or www.laughatrice.com In the bay area, I see real rice all the freakin' time and that aint bad if it were minus the fart pipe and clear lenses, not even close.

I really dig the Cold war Era missle launch toggle switches in the dash.

No Really, If could afford half the mods that guy has i would be thrilled. There is no need to bag on the guy because his car is better than yours, or becasue he has a tacky looking wing, etc. That car is teh hotness!!!!

i'm sure he got to a point where he was like, "what else can i do to this car? oh yeah, i guess i could do that" :-P

Is it just me, or does that look VERY much like an 8v Tbelt tensioner arrangement showhorned onto a 16v head? Pimp (again) the "it can't be done" block-mount dizzy with 16v head arrangement too.

I'd prefer the styling to be more discrete, but it's not my car...can't be - it's probably fast!

He has an M90, righttirefire doesn't...nuff said :)

Where is this R-Sport 16v head someone mentioned?

cheers

that is an amazing car--the body work is killer, the interior is nice(neon=who gives?), the drivetrain is bad ass
yes, the wing was fugly as hell--its gone now (good for him)
the stickers were a bit over the top (but i have one, two if you count the VCOA one)...so don't rag
overall, that is the kind of volvo every single one of us dream of having...nevermind that its a 240 :barf:

Good God. I was on the phone with a friend of mine while I was looking at these pics of it, and all I could say was MY GOD while I was looking at page 2. then I saw the spoiler and cried.

In Russia, volvo 240's are used by the police! nice..

Never seen one. Newer cars from 940 to S80 are sometimes used, but not 240's.

Bottom line: I like the car, even if he added the wing back on.

It seems to be eactly what he wants it to be, its completely not stock (as in factory trim for that model).

I'd never criticize that much effort, even if it was on a honda.

I like it MORE for what its not. Its NOT any other make vehicle.

dont hate...appreciate


nahh...that doesnt work all the time..

especially when the kids in a wicked ass sweet ass tight ass honduh with altezzas, 150stickers, double stack wing, and a fart can call their 1.6L pile of mistakes...fast? I tend to not appreciate.

I only appreciate when actual work went into the car, and taste is involved. Someone who walks into autozone and Wal-Mart and purchases some air freshner, fuzzy dice, shift knobs and wheels covers, and a b..e..a.tiful Le-brah to top it off. Doesnt get appreciation points.;-)

about the BMW http://europeancarweb.com/features/0312ec_bmw_07_z.jpg... wanna talk about clean installs?? that Mo-tech install puts the MSnS installs to shame...the engine wiring nearly looks factory, or that could be the car is entirely stripped.

about the 242:

All I can say, I would be teary-eyed happy to walk out to that car everyday and start up and drive off. Any 242, that has nice paint..good body and a powerful engine makes me happy. That car is sweetness...no doubt. The only thing he would need is blacked out bezels and such. Thats what i would like to see..but it looks amazing as it sits. Leave it.

Anyone want to explain exactly how he got a 16v head on the car with a block mount dizzy?

According to the all knowing turbobricks that is supposed to be impossible.

Is that intake manifold stock?

Yeah, that intake manifold looks kind of custom to me... not sure though...

I've been following this thread for a few days now... the thing that bugs me about it all (of course it's a sweet ride and no doubt better than mine) is that people call it "rice." It's not japanese!

No offense, just my two cents on the whole thing...

Actually, the first use of "rice" I ever heard was "rice rocket" used to describe an early Kawasaki GPZ.
Then I heard nothing until the early 80s, and it was "rice burners" for Datsuns and Toyotas.
That blew over, until the 90s. The Rice Boyz of California went overboard with "mods" and the fad swept East.
A Cavalier with a 3-foot tall wing, 17" chromes, neon lights and sideways asian writing in the rear window is rice.

Stay on target people.....

How the hell is he using a block mount distributor on a 16v head? Is it JUST the custom intake manifold that is letting him do that?

foggyjames
08-01-2005, 07:25 PM
It's the head that it hits. I guess a low profile dizzy / cap / leads?

You may not be able to see what it is but as long as he likes it I think its cool he prob has MORE HP than 90% of the people on the board incluning myself so i woul not knock him even if he has a little bit more rice than I care for but again who am I. HATERS

If someone was to call my car a ricer because of the body kit and lowering etc, I would take it as the american equalivelent of being call tuned, which my car is. Rice to me is a term to indicate your car has been modified beyond Volvo normal everyday parts. Some people are purists and that happens with all brands of cars. What are tuned Corvette cars called?. We need to get away from derogatory names and be happy and accept people's creativity and hard work even if it does not work out to our ideals. It's just car craft.

We are on target.
The thread started out ridiculing a car, but was changed when the majority liked it. If we are discussing the ways in which some people abuse cars and the ways some people are ignorant in their intolerance, we are on topic/target.

*edit: I added the question mark and "vote says no" to the title, btw.

Umm from what I've seen and what he wrote that is a stock 16 valve intake manifold. Turns out there's one under my hood as well. I can't believe there is this much chatter over a car that has incredible amounts of tuning and is owned by a very nice guy. I don't think I need to do my usual rant about aftermarket vs. stock volvo parts because I think by now we all should know that the only opinion that matters about a person's car is the owner's opinion.
