Alright, you asked for it, here's the pick of the litter from my collection.




Go here and prepare to be inspired, especially if you like custom fabrication:
http://boost242.se/




OFI engineering's car, again, if you like insane custom fabrication on a 242, go here with a box of tissues.
http://www.ofiengineering.se/







Here's the engine bay for the car above.


Hey look it's Kenny's car! Ohh wait.


Engine for Amazon67's car.











611hp/750tq


SundinRacing


That black 740 who had the insanely popular vid on youtube of him drifting around.


One of our Icelandic members from ~'04, it just looks like such a simple manifold, makes it look do-able for the average guy.



One of our members, can't remember who right now, I wanna say like a mideast coast area guy, yellowbrick or redbrick or something, just a gorgeous car. Sold me on flathood and 7" rounds.





One of our own members! This was back in like '03 when the common misconception was that "an intercooler too big will cause massive turbolag.." 10 points to whoever can guess who this is.


I think this was Noah's interior from his white 244.


Some guy's 1800, not a 240 but c'mon! That is so gorgeous.


Roger Dee's custom cnc milled interior

Hahaha, there's a 50 image limit to each post! who knew. Anyways, here's the rest.





Rob's car, obviously


Pretty sure this is a US guy, like a northern east coast guy, can't remember who.






This was one of my first volvo loves, I printed this pic out in 2003 and taped it to the wall behind my computer as a constant source of inspiration to what's achievable. Then a few weeks ago I actually saw the car at a local car show! The guy from EuroSportTuning built it as a high school project back in the late 90's, and it still looks beautiful.


"Blue Danger", this one got taped to the wall too!

So I spend the past 2 hours searching through pics and posting that for you guys, yet I can't seem to find the time to post the sweet stuff that I'm working on. Dunno what's wrong with me.

Holy crap! Thank you!

And Phil gets the prize, that's me standing in front of JB's car, at least half cut too.
Drunken parking lot intercooler mockup FTW.

See I didn't even know that was JB's car, all this time I thought you had a silver 242 at one point but you never mentioned it.

LOL actually that IS my car. I had an '84 242Ti, and that is it.

JB's is an '80GT and a lot nicer than that hoopty.
