Default två fjorton ståta med rolig AKA 240 Sport Sedan

First a little background on the car and how it feel into my lap.

A 1992 240 with some bruises and scrapes from being driven in Baltimore city. Original owner bought a car from my friend and she gave him this car when she bought the 93 240 he had. She stated that the car needed an ENGINE! Well my friend asked me if I wanted the car since he did not pay anything for it I told him SURE I can not turn down a FREE car. So he towed it to me with a title and said have fun.

He asked what are you going to do with it I just and said you will see. It has been sitting @ my shop for about a month until I could find time to work on it. After some FEW mintues I knew right away what was wrong with it INTAKE gasket on #1 runner was blown out. I installed a new intake gasket and she runs okay again.

Future plans A Fun Low BUDGET project

Some pictures for now. Yeah I know it is missing the grille I was hitting the brakes real hard and the grille flew out and I ran it over


Then










Now so far







NOW SO FAR More pictures Page 9

Pretty sure its a babelfish fail too, considering it translates it back to english as "two fourteen show off with funny"

Should be cool to watch the progression of another one of your creations Todd

I don't know if you know this, but I speak Swedish, and your title is still nonsensical. Tell me what are you trying to say, and I'll give you a proper translation.
