Okay, after 9 years and 8 - 240's(all n/a), I'm seriously considering a 92 745 turbo. Can you guys skool me little bit on these cars. I literally know very little about the 700 series or turbos. Ecodes for a 92? issues?

I only posted in this thread, because I'm using it for "inspiration" and education.

Going grandpa style!

p.s Rada's car is awesome!

That's my posting above yours, I have had well over 100 2, 7 and 940 cars, and even 2 780 Bertones with the turbo 4 cyl, presently have an 89 Berty Coupe with 96k miles on her, thinking about selling it and getting back into a 7 or 9 turbo wagon... For me it's like once you own a 7/9 turbo wagon you can never go back to a 240/245 car , the ride, handling and performance is so much better in the larger cars, just sayin'.... My personal experience/taste.......... here's my Bertone.

^^^^Okay, 1st off, that's an awsome 745, does it have a Ford V8 for power or what? Wasn't it converted to V8 for Newman? You listed everything but, what wheels they are, style, size, make, spacers???? VERY sharp...

Buick Grand National V6 Turbo .... converted way back in 1988. I think the original Volvo motor had less than 1500 miles on it before it was converted. Would love to had that original motor just for the keeping. The wheels are forged BBS RGR's custom made for the 850's offset. Has a set of 32 mm Gil Racing adaptors to fit currently.
