Pretty cool how it's possible to count the legs on that bug stuck to the air dam.

imgur allows you to resize the pic by adding a 's', 'm' or 'l' before the '.jpg' in the address.

This is s.



This is m.



This is l.

Then there´s a 1979 GT driving around in my area. It is owned by a old guy (probably in his 70´s). A friend of mine has met him once and was told that the car is his since 1983 and has 450´000km. I dont know the VIN, but I´ll try to change that.

"This car is built upon a Volvo 242GT but this one is a 1978 model, that was rebuilt with the 1980 rear end and the 1983 front. This car was originally built to run in the Volvo Turbo Cup that started in 1982 here in Sweden...." http://www.240grupp-a.se It is now the Heico Sportiv Group-A car, sadly no info on the VIN
