I love the 245 in the rock quarry/puddle. That little wing is so bitchin. Subtle but sexy.:nod:

good thread idea Cameron.

Heres 4 cars that were key inspiration for me in the last 10 years...

The first car i saw that made me want to do more than paint the caps on my virgos (circa 1998 thanks to tractor-pulling-center for showing modded volvos to the US)

...and heres what it looks like today (not a fan of those wheels though)

Next was the original b&w photos of this car which i dont have anymore but i think i can thank anthony hyde for sharring the original back in '99 maybe?

The one i stared at the most and even found the back issue of bilsport with it... one of my all time favorites (550hp on an 8v motor btw)

Cameron, I would pimp that wagon too even with the bottle cap rims. That makes me want a 245 SO freaking badly.

I know, right?! Guess I better crank the coilovers down some more on my wagon when I get it running again w/ the new engine. Ground clearance be damned! http://smiliesftw.com/x/okaaay.gif

550 06-18-2009 02:45 PM

hell yes! Get a front engine guard and your good.

Just you wait, my current springs bottom out the perch on the tires, which is why I've got some 6"x350s sitting on the bench waiting until after the autox this weekend to go in. :-D

Dave B's was the complete mold visually I started with for the V-Ron...I loved that car...What is this up to now? Does anyone know?

Reverse open hood? Or just poorly aligned? Either way, very very nice car. :nod:

I think i've seen underhood shots of that car before... The hood is jacked up to allow extra heat to dissapate... cause there is something hot under there ;-)

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?

Yes Cameron... Greg has the car, here in CT... I believe he's in the middle of rewiring the whole thing right now. Last time I saw the car was like back in December, Greg and I pulled the stereo system out and it resides in my car now.

I wish I could take the cowl out of mine :-(

Except because of the low pressure area at the base of the windshield, it doesn't work at speed. Guess it would be OK while sitting....

Poik 06-18-2009 08:28 PM

I think you mean high pressure, but yeah I don't see how that would help with cooling at all.

You would know better than I, seeing as how you graduated :) But yeah that's what I meant.

Cameron 06-19-2009 02:38 PM

^^but now it looks like I posted a pic of my own car based on your reason for deleting madness82's post of his own car. Harumph!
