I know, right? I kinda didn't want to post it as it seems an odd choice to put a V8 in an otherwise "accurate" replica, but it's still rad.

I was also thinking that a little bit of cropping could really improve that photo.

That's one of the nicest 240s ever, it's what this thread is about.

This might be a stupid question, but does anyone know why this thing has two oil filler caps?

Thanks!

probably just because. you can knock out the plug that is in the empty one and put in another filler. works on 4,5 and 6 cyl whiteblocks. also, can make it easier to access if you have a funky strut brace or something
