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 :)

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...

I guess I need to get mine made.

Lest we never forget THIS one....

One of the early 'fast' Volvo's. Still faster than my wagon....for now...but that will change.

In case Doug reads this....you stopped kicking yourself yet?

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