Default The Streetkarnage Wagon

Hello all,

been planing to build a 240 wagon for a daily driver for the last few months, i was looking for a late 70s shape.

but then got offered a red 91 wagon with low ks, m47, lowered, and overall very very clean. It was a bit more then what i wanted to pay but im very happy with it.

i have a few things planned for it, and i am hoping to get them down quickly..





please let me know what you think

thanks

Zak

Guess it's like in Sweden; airbags were standard from 1993.

However the car looks really nice!
I'm looking for a car just like that, but man the good ones gets sold very fast.
