Here's a select few that continually make me want to work on my car and make it better. The "competition" inside my head I guess ;-)

Plus it's a good excuse to post pics of drool-worthy Volvo stuff :)

These ones aren't 240s but whatever:

So let's see the cars that have inspired you. Maybe a car that made you want to get into Volvos in the first place, etc.

Not sure if I'm in the right place, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the widest rim/tire I can fit on the rear of my 87 244 is. It's stock.

Who knows what size tyres it has? My bet is 225/50R16.

Does anybody have details on this cars exhaust? Is it straight pipe I assume, but looks center mounted?

so much downforce it does wheelies...

This is pretty much my goal for my wagon. I have these same Volvo steel wheels, painted black. I plan on adding chrome nuts and possibly trim rings to the wheels. As for the body, I want to paint all my greying trim black, paint all of my chrome trim black, and possibly paint from the base of the windows up in black. Simple, inexpensive, and different. Just how I roll.

Two years later I sold the car to my dad and he still has it with only 78K miles on the odometer. Over the last several years I have start buying upgrades for him at Christmas, etc. Virgo wheels, IPD valve stem covers, IPD Strut braces, a VX3 Camshaft, and IPD sway bar set.

I installed the cam last week and we went for a drive, with 2.5 degrees of advance power still seemed alittle sluggish...altough I an used to alittle higher powered cars. Would it help to advance more???? First gear seems very sluggish off the line.

You should make your own thread for this.

Wow did not know the place would be so negative to new members. Yes, I moved on to other cars but still maintain his 240 and 850 turbo. I now have an 87 Callaway Corvette TT, 3 highly modified 90s ZR-1s, a tuned v12 TT Sl600, and my DD is a C32 AMG.

It's because you stepped into shlt right inside the door.
This thread has a long history of people not reading or paying attention to what is supposed to be posted in here. Just like you did.
So ignore the responses, post in the correct forum and you'll be fine. Thick skin here is a plus.
Also we can smell BS from a mile away, so don't even bother trying any of that.

Otherwise welcome, there is a lot of Volvo knowledge available here and worth sticking it out.
