      Judging by that mirror, I bet this guy really took care of this car.

      I am sorry Vad, but how many cars did you "go through" before picking this one ? I think we're talking hundreds here.

      Wouldn't it be easier to get an XR4Ti locally, buy some Eurosohurtz Sierra bits & pieces over the interwebs and have them shipped here (via Japan overnight), cobble together your own beast, spraypaint COSPLAY on the hood and be done with it?

      I can't believe you even ask this question. It's a Ford Sierra (probably an original 1.6L el cheapo judging by the rear quarter window) with full cosworth body kit and possibly an engine swap. Although Vad and I have yet to verify the 2nd part. Oh and no interior... Which mean it is ready for some sparco seat.

      A. This car already has full cosworth kit so that's all the work
      2. XR4Ti has ugly split quarter window. Deal breaker!
      !. This car is supposedly a 1984 so it's legal...
      D. But the eBay listing says it has 2.0 DOHC engine... From 1989. It is a time machine!
      E. I have been hanging out with Vad way too much.

      Yeah, and how's the worked out for you.

      Why would you bother with importing a replica?
      Also, vad, if you get it federalized (pre-25ed), have you figured out CARB?

      Favorite thread of the week, right here. And my girlfriend thinks me wanting a 240 wagon is crazy. She'll feel better after reading this.

      Because we can't afford a real cosworth? And also because Vad.

      We are not interested in performance. We just want to have something that looks like a cosworth. RHD a plus (again, Vad).

      Did you see the Nurburgring sticker??!? It means....racecar!

      It really doesn't look that bad. The immediate issues were exactly the same as my E30 when I bought it. Front valence wasn't attached, someone shoved the diving boards in and the passenger side mirror was an unpainted replacement. All fixed in an hour for about $100.

      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
      CARB has been exempted from the interstate commerce clause. There's like a US Supreme court case on it from the 60s.

      Jesus, you need to get away from vad for a bit.
      Where is this car going to live? I'm informed that vad's mom's driveway is full.

      If you guys want an awesome money pit, may I suggest a 450SEL 6.9?
