One of our Icelandic members from ~'04, it just looks like such a simple manifold, makes it look do-able for the average guy.

One of our members, can't remember who right now, I wanna say like a mideast coast area guy, yellowbrick or redbrick or something, just a gorgeous car. Sold me on flathood and 7" rounds.

One of our own members! This was back in like '03 when the common misconception was that "an intercooler too big will cause massive turbolag.." 10 points to whoever can guess who this is.

This was one of my first volvo loves, I printed this pic out in 2003 and taped it to the wall behind my computer as a constant source of inspiration to what's achievable. Then a few weeks ago I actually saw the car at a local car show! The guy from EuroSportTuning built it as a high school project back in the late 90's, and it still looks beautiful.

"Blue Danger", this one got taped to the wall too!

The Aspirator 06-20-2009 10:46 AM

So I spend the past 2 hours searching through pics and posting that for you guys, yet I can't seem to find the time to post the sweet stuff that I'm working on. Dunno what's wrong with me.

Holy crap! Thank you!

And Phil gets the prize, that's me standing in front of JB's car, at least half cut too. :rofl:
Drunken parking lot intercooler mockup FTW.

The Aspirator 06-20-2009 05:05 PM

See I didn't even know that was JB's car, all this time I thought you had a silver 242 at one point but you never mentioned it.

adrianpike 06-20-2009 05:07 PM

KTP has a car?

LOL actually that IS my car. I had an '84 242Ti, and that is it.

JB's is an '80GT and a lot nicer than that hoopty.

FattMatt805 06-21-2009 02:18 AM

not a 240, but inspirational nonetheless

Damnit I want a 240 now.

The Aspirator 06-23-2009 10:17 AM

I had some really good pics of that 740 but I decided not to post them, that car is well done.
