That Bronco is pretty awesome too. It is a '78. 351/C4. The toughest part of that whole resto was putting the damn bikini top on!

I kinda figured, but the centers looked a little off of the M05.

Genuine BBS Motorsport centerlock "E55" wheels. You can still order them new from BBS Motorsport. Expect to pay $4000ish+ a set and another $2000-4000 a set for all of the centerlock bits to attach them to a 240.

Of Course they are....I hate my expensive taste. Here is RSI's (Johnathan's) wagon in the desert, Props to them and natural earth beauty. I am just the idiot who drives the thing, didn't build it at all. EDIT: I know I'm disobeying rules but I don't really see it as "my" wagon, don't care if it's removed, totally understand if it does, this thread just doesn't get posted in very much anymore and it's more of an inspiration for what a good background/light can do for your 240....end rant

Natural lens blur produced by Lensbaby Velvet56, not great execution of aperture by me but can't soften and sharpen at same time. (but also still a newer lens for me)

What is/was the top half? Looks kinda beetle like, but the front window is wrong, and so is the roof shape.
