A Euro 240 Transport limousine -- not to be confused with the more common wagon version of this workhorse.

That's a Blue Light Special...with important person flags! "Do you have a flaaag?"


While rooting around in the BB archives, I found these sad pics. From a FS ad a few years ago. A seemingly nice 142 stored literally in a barn was found by punks and trashed.

Is it time for a 1964 122 wagon?

That glass has to be extremely difficult and/or expensive to replace. Ugh.

I've noticed more than just a handful of musicians drove Volvos. There's a famous photo of Ozzy with his 145 or 245 floating around out there.

Here's an infamous video from 2010:



I think that may be Ballard, where the Ballard Market is on summer weekends.

Edit: Yes, looks like it was filmed in Ballard: https://enewspaper.latimes.com/infinity ... 9881a99b2b

Here's a sweet 145 work wagon I photographed in Ballard in Feb. 2018 when I was there visiting friends.

What a wonderful color those 140s arrived in. Fits it perfectly.

He drives right by Lombardi's a few times there.

OH no...which I'm sad to read closed in....2010 !? I'm clearly an out-of-towner now.

I think my old Ballard neighbor had a Butterscotch 145E long before we moved in. Bought it new. (was there an E wagon?)

Maybe it still lives! He took really good care of things.
