Default Inspiration for 740s

There's a thread full of sweet 240's so why not start one for the 740s
what 740s got you happy and inspired and wanting to get your project done

I show that video to all the nonbelievers.

My first Volvo was an free white '87 745. I was looking at 245's and Subaru wagons before my first daughter was born. I ended up with that car and it was all over.
