OK, so this is a 780 with a 960 front on it, right?



But this is less obvious. Is it a 940 with a 2-door conversion, or a 780 that's copped a 900 face (and bum) lift? Or something else?

It's a 944 converted to a 942 with a 960 front end.

Cool, thanks.

The green 942 is very cool, although I'm not a fan of the flared guards (I think they make it too "boy racer" / Fast and Furious).

Its beyond my capabilities (and budget!), but I really like the idea of a nice, factory looking 942 with IRS, some factory 17s and a 16V+T - something that was easy to get along with, but much faster... And the general population would think was a stocker...

You can try contacting REALCAR in Norway (http://www.realcar.no) or Sweden (http://www.realcar.se).
They have a lot of styling for Volvo, including roofspoiler for the 944.

You can find the roofspoiler under:
Volvo --> 900 --> vinge tuning - Realcar Volvo 944/964 Dynamic Roofspoiler

Yup - round me up 20ish people that will buy them and I'll see what we can do.

Thanks.. I guess I could blow my money on something worse, right ? IPD -- We could easily round up 20 or so folks that'd like a roof spoiler (I believe you offer one in your catalog for our FWD friends).. Oh, and how about some of the rims posted by Even.j ...

I thought the same thing.. I think they're just Eikers painted titanium with a very low profile tire.

They're Eikers, Polaris's have a little rim around the lip. And those are most definately widened, not just low profile tires.
