Inspiration for 740s


Feb 12, 2008
Fl, jax
There's a thread full of sweet 240's so why not start one for the 740s
what 740s got you happy and inspired and wanting to get your project done

this is the video that got my cup of 740s started for me

I show that video to all the nonbelievers.

My first Volvo was an free white '87 745. I was looking at 245's and Subaru wagons before my first daughter was born. I ended up with that car and it was all over.
Well, I like my 744 tic so here are some crappy iPhone pictures:

yeah i know about the foglights..they were trashed when I got the car, and I removed them after I had the bumper fixed and repainted.
and heres the engine as it sits now, new turbo and IC going in very soon:

That burgundy one is GORGEOUS!!! are those compo's?

The only somewhat decent pics i have of 740s are of this slammed one from sweden..


Its not that nice but damn it is low for a 740!!
that is my motivation, been that way from the start. my car is slowly making its way toward the same sort of power. just been a slow(er) than normal process.
Mine, every time I drive it, see it parked in the distance, or even watching it rolling down the road in the reflection of a building or the side of another car
