But it has the potential to be the BEST thread! That is, if there was an update? Car running? Not running? On fire? Not on fire?

yeah, update soon. Relax.

I drove to VA a couple weeks ago to pick up a 242 owned by zach spencer (xeroconcepts), cool dude, cool car. Who owned this car before him? I think he mentioned liquidvice?

It's a fair bet that Greg (liquidvice) has owned most 240's in DC/MD/VA at some point or another.

Haha yeah. It was Greg's, he put the "new" engine in it. A decent car I guess, hope you got a deal on it Lee

I got a pretty good deal on it for what it is. I reckon rings, bearings, and seals can be called a new engine ( I don't know the extent of the overhaul) wastegate got stuck closed?. Just something to tool around in, I can't get into too much trouble with it and 2 door shells are hard to find around these parts.

I thought about calling, but it was Easter Sunday and I had to get back. I was browsing Rob's thread, and if he can post pictures under a car cover, so can I. I'd like to make it out to Carlisle.
