Is charisma the theme of the thread or the name for the car? Because if the latter... that's quite the stripper you have there.

Looking forward to seeing more development with this car.

You're an idiot! I can't believe you lifted a 240. Absolutely ruined it...

Why, did you like how horrible mine looked sky high on stock style suspension?

My wagons suspension is still bone stock, I love the way it rides, I want my sedan higher.

The shipyard I work at floods a lot, 10" of ground clearance sounds nice.

You never grabbed that sunroof switch (which is still waiting for you in my work bag...) and other bits for your 940. Would have made all the difference you senseless bastard.

Nothing will make the difference for a grandpa car except the inevitable crushing.
