Some then and now pics of the two black '82 242 Turbos I've owned...


Old 242, May 2003 - note how everything isn't severely overgrown.


Current 242, today (6/29/19) - blackberries have sorta taken over, tree's much larger, and lots of vegetation in front yard, blocking most of the morning/midday sunlight.

245 getting in on the action:

I sure hope people like seeing the same 245 over and over again.

Ended up with a rusty manual 1984 240 GLT for a mere $350nz
But had no where at all to keep yet another non-road-legal car
So repurposed the A-frame from my truck and caravan (3rd use)
And towed it to our block of land 3+ hours out of the city to sit

Pics:















It came with fairly clean/tidy Virgos but two would not hold air after sitting flat for years in a field. So I chucked some bald tyres on 940 rims on it for the tow.

Front were balded-by-me Dunlop D01J semi slick race tyres in 225/50R15 and looked pretty sweet on there! Rears were something factory or close ex drift day from my 16v 740.

Seven seater, rare manual, and with the black trim I've been trying to get for my gold GLE 240 wagon since I bought it 4 or 5 years ago! Excellent.

Dirty, wrong trim, etc. But, more Canadian-like. Cleaning the car tomorrow at a coin-op. Will get the correct lower core support piece as soon as I find one that's not silver, white, yellow, red, etc... After that, just need to find a pair of fenders with the correct trim holes.

242 got a year of manufacture plate. May run it for a few weeks, then go back to the state parks plates. That way, I can get the license tab renewal date where it belongs, which is at the end of whichever month I do this on. Probably January or February. Might even do it in March. Currently, we have two vehicles that expire in August (this one and one of the Subies), another that expires at the end of September (my wagon), and one that expires in early December (the other Subie - the white car barely visible to the right in the pic).



Also been posting a lot of 245 porn on Flickr lately.

You have Multi-X fetish
How did the glass sunroof conversion go on the first 780? Did you keep the original headliner?

I believe all the 780s came with the glass moonroof.... Not steel.... Yeah, I had a spare set of multix's I would swap from car to car and paint the spokes accordingly....
