Well IMO the MK2 headlights and grille mixed with the eggcrate grille looks awesome. Not a big fan of the camaro Lights, spoiler, and hood mirrors though.

Definitely agree, looks better in the first pic without the hood mirrors.

You need to stop driving and have your mom take you in for an eye exam

The second picture is missing a 240 mirror after it fell off in shame.

This is by far the dopest 7/9 series wagon I have ever seen. No question. Usually not a fan of the 90'> headlights it looks awesome on this car. Makes me want to get another 7 series wagon immediately. Kudos to whoever built this car, any link on it?

hahah i see that for sale sign across the street. I always thought that my neighbors hate all my cars but for whatever reason they all stop by when walking and talk to me about the cars when i work on them. I just had a lady tell me how much she loved her old 142, and love the cars in my drive way, go figure.

Figured I'd post a photo of the only 740 I've owned from back in June 2008. I miss that car.
16V converted to M46 with some mild suspension work and cosmetic upgrades.
