Down Under 240 Wagon

Today I have a something suuuuuuuper sexay.  Like, seriously sexay.  I mean, this thing has amassed dopesauce to a degree that is utterly unfathomable to most people.  Fuck it, it is unfathomable to everyone.  Yeah, everyone.

I mean, just look at the sex machine.

I remember when I first laid eyes on this very image a few weeks ago.  I can’t even remember where but after I saw it I went on a mad escapade to try and find more info and the owner.  Thankfully my exhaustive efforts, and lack of any real semblance of a life outside of cars, did me well.  I found the home blog of this 240 and the owner, Zak.

The modification list is short but sweet for this ’91 240 Wagon.  Modifications include; 15×10 Diamond racing wheels fitted with 195/50 Kumho tires, custom King Springs with lowered Shocks, Extractors with a full 2″ Exhaust, Late 60s Volvo 244 Sun Visor, and a blacked out grille.

Can you believe that Zak started this project as a daily while he worked on another 240 sedan project (not pictured)?  Psshya, I didn’t either.  That whole idea has since been scrapped and Zak now focuses all his attention on this beast.

If this thing didn’t look proper enough right now, Zak is currently dropping a SR20DET into the massive bay of the 240.  I’d say that that is pretty freaking fantastic.  Can you imagine seeing a giant mom-mobile, like the 240, driving past you and having the sound of a turbocharged SR20?  I tried to envision just that, but my brain nearly assploded so I had to stop.

This car just makes me want to build a 240 Wagon even more.  I even put off working on my own xB today so I could write this today, that is how much I love it.

Major props to Zak!

    That thing is super sick. We must have updates when the SR20 is up and humping.
