Default Qwkswede's 1992 244 daily driver. Back to my rolling roots.

I just picked up a new daily driver that makes more sense to me than the V70R I just sold. I have a decent plan for upgrades for this car. Its my daily driver, so its gotta be reliable, comfortable, and not too expensive to maintain.

Here are some pictures from September 2014 when I first picked it up.

The old tint was purple and bubbling. I had that fixed up by a local shop with a peel job and some darker newer tint. I also fixed the air conditioning system and installed my racks so I could carry bicycles to races and rides. This is how it looks for now.

Parked next to its 25 year older friend.


Its been about 5 years since I last owned a 240, and about 20 years since I owned a modified one. But I started my driving career in a 1980 244, and I'm really stoked to be driving one again 28 years later. I go away to other cars for a while, but always seem to come back to these great 240s. I can't get away.
