And the good thing is that there's shiet loads of em, and can be found for next to nothing. I tried searching for a decent 242 for cheap in my area... gave up... bought a 244... and I'm comfortable LOL

honestly the majority of inspiration to my 242 build is this restored 242 grpA turbo

if only i could acquire enough money to finish the build the way i want it...

my next conquest is to find a set of these puppies...

God damn I love the front end of a 1 series...

Rest of the car is pretty cool to!

Crazychopstick 01-25-2010 11:02 AM

Looks cool.

But that front end only came on 164s as far as I know, not all 1 series cars. 140s didn't get it and they certainly didn't get it in a coupe or a convertible from the factory. ;-)

Any pics of the red convertible with the top up?

Looks like it folds into the trunk? Fukin BADASS!

I thiiiiiink it folds flat behind the front seats. Going by the last shot where the trunk is open and its hinges are in the normal spot.

Edit: No no now that I look at it its gonna go into the trunk. But they just fold it up and put it in there. No way is it power.

Both shots of the roof hangin halfway between, the roof is in the same position.

Vol242vo 01-25-2010 09:43 PM

No way in hell that fits into the trunk, too wide from trim to trim and way too long. Sexy none the less, my money is the top in sitting in the grass in front of the car.
