So does this count as your 4th car ever?

The Full Banana 06-05-2015 03:35 PM

Is charisma the theme of the thread or the name for the car? Because if the latter... that's quite the stripper you have there.

Looking forward to seeing more development with this car.

Welcome back to the bright side, to what do we owe the honor?

Jerd 06-05-2015 07:31 PM

Me not liking 940s is the main reason i got this back. Also fits my lifestyle better, i like to get out.

Tuff240 06-05-2015 07:58 PM

You're an idiot! I can't believe you lifted a 240. Absolutely ruined it...

Hahaha I had some inspiration from one or two others before I decided to give it a go. :-P

PDX240 06-05-2015 11:30 PM

Where'd the lower trim go?

Jerd 06-06-2015 12:13 AM

Half of it was falling off and i ripped the other half off.

Why, did you like how horrible mine looked sky high on stock style suspension?

Looks better than a crippled wagon to me.

slow240 06-06-2015 01:01 PM

My wagons suspension is still bone stock, I love the way it rides, I want my sedan higher.

The shipyard I work at floods a lot, 10" of ground clearance sounds nice.

You never grabbed that sunroof switch (which is still waiting for you in my work bag...) and other bits for your 940. Would have made all the difference you senseless bastard.

DCOE 240 06-07-2015 09:18 PM

I always wanted to build a baja 500 245

Nothing will make the difference for a grandpa car except the inevitable crushing.
