Default Inspiration -- 240 Style (DONT POST YOUR OWN)

While I wait for more time, money and parts for my project I like to look through the Volvo gallery I've amassed over the last few years to keep me motivated and inspired to continue forward with trying to make a turd go fast (tuning a Volvo that is). Here's a select few that continually make me want to work on my car and make it better. The "competition" inside my head I guess

Plus it's a good excuse to post pics of drool-worthy Volvo stuff












This one not really, but it cracks me up



These ones aren't 240s but whatever:









So let's see the cars that have inspired you. Maybe a car that made you want to get into Volvos in the first place, etc.

The common denominator is... proper cam gears...

that intake manifold is 2 weber DCOE carbs I think. That header is really custom looking, I guess the guy wanted equal lengths?
