I always had a weak spot in my heart for 240's. They're bold, raw, and pretty much in this day in age, a blank canvas where the sky is the limit. Rarely do you see a 240 that isn't modified and if you do, it's a project just waiting to happen. Various motor swaps, interior design, body kits, exhaust setups side dumps, slammed, camber, drifting, you name it. This car was made to be modified and thats just what Joey did.
I originally wanted to do a Big Country Labs (BCL) collection and shoot cars with big wings so as my search started I stumbled across Joey; a New Hampshire resident who is no new kid on the block when it comes to 240's. This being his 6th or 7th, he wanted to make sure to do everything right. After trashing a handful of SR20's, he contemplated V8 or RB25; both of which would be a solid choice, but the harder more interesting swap would have been the RB. Im sure you can guess which one he went with. If the beautiful sound of an RB wasn't good enough, he successfully converted the 240 to RHD completely on his own in his small, powerless, garage; and thats only the start of it.
Here is his complete modification list and pictures to follow. Enjoy
