Here are a few that have kept the 240 flame going for me, even if I didn't own one at the time.

Nope, those are the only pics I have. But maybe you or a swedish helper (buchka) can find the build thread for it, it's a pretty popular yellow and black 745 that runs 9's or 10's, I've seen a few vids of it roasting down the track.

The only info I have on that car currently is its new incarnation. The previous owner sold the rolling chassis to someone else who installed a 5 cylinder and a jerico trans.

Here is my inspiration. It may not be the best looking car right at the moment but it is powered by a Yota 1JZ. I have seen, rode and drove this car. I'm very impressed. this is one smooth car and the wheels are hot! http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/n...9/DSC_0011.jpg[/IMG] http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/n...9/DSC_0009.jpg[/IMG] .......... Its a lot of fun getting the WTF look from people.

yah, oh wait, you have an early model too......

maybe you should make yours just like that too!;-)

Jordan 07-02-2009 03:18 PM

I think the early style is all wrong for pegs and a 5cyl. Must be a redblock in the old style.

Once upon a time there was a project thread on that car, but its deleted now.. I belive that car has 500-550 hp on a 90+ exhaust manifold. The reason that the thread was deleted was that the norwegian DMW started searching forums for illegaly modified cars, and here in norway its illegal to have more than 225 hp in a 240, so the car was called in for inspection and the owner had to put an stock B230ft in it so it went thru the inspection.. After that he deleted the thread
