I remember reading that somewhere too -- something about smog laws/DMV laws in Sweden that made the 16v easier to register than the 6 cyl or something. Either way, both versions of that car are incredible. However I'm quite partial to the 16v iteration.

Just everything about this car makes me all giggity.

What does that do? Turn the wheels "quicker" I am assuming? So its probably really touchy?

Yup, another solution instead of a quick rack. Rob is poking fun because Adrian posted a thread about quick ratio racks and mentioned several times that quickeners were only for mullet heads. Well, not those words exactly, but you know.

Dude he mods a volvo in sweden. You know many times he seriously thought of airbrushing some giant nordic fantasy scene on the hood, but then found some imported Coors and waxed it instead?

I can't draw, but I have an idea of what I want locked up in my head. It's always been there since I owned the 240. Cam, you helped me get partway towards realizing that vision, and in fact, you helped me leap frog about 2/3rds of that process. And for that I thank you.
I found photos I saved from the very first email from Dan... Gave me goosebumps and I got all excited just like the first time. I went out five minutes later to the driveway and washed her down.

I can't find a picture of the car that started me off on Volvo's. It was my neighbors 1800es. Actually he had 2 and I haven't been the same since.

There was a Black 240 sedan in bilsport years ago, I used to have the article in PDF, can't remember if it was 2 doors or 4, with a twin turbo 6. Definitely an inspiration to me...

Brett wtf are you babbling about?

He's trying to get all emotinal and spiritual with his car interest. lol

I hope this thread doesnt turn into another thread where everyone posts their gay ass 240s.

Yeah I agree. Can we get a mod on board that promises to delete any and all posts that "feature" members stock 240s rolling on "refinished" virgos? Seriously.
