Jalopnik Needs Swedespeed's Help to Find a 1983 Volvo 242 Group A Homologated
Mar 1, 2010 - 1:39:00 PM
You may have seen recently that Jalopnik.com held a competition where readers voted to include some of their favorite cars in a Jalopnik-sponsored add-on pack for the popular XBox racing game, Forza 3. Well, a legendary Volvo made the final cut and, unfortunately, it's rare enough that they're having trouble finding one to scan and record for the game. Do you know where one lives? Can you help them get the car into the game? Here's the full story from Sam Smith over at Jalopnik:
Here's what we're looking for. As part of the research for our Jalopnik Forza Motorsport 3 downloadable content pack, we've agreed to help Turn 10 Studios, Forza's producer, look for cars to scan. One of the cars in the group is a Volvo, and we wondered if you or any of the Swedespeed crowd would be able to help.
Here's what we're looking for: Turn 10 needs a 1983 Volvo 242 Group A Homologated, a.k.a. U.S.-market "flathood," a.k.a. U.S. Group A Special Edition. Location isn't important, but the car needs to be in good running condition, be capable of being run on a dynamometer for sound recording, and be cosmetically stock. (If it's not stock, it at least needs to be made to appear stock for the scanning process.) It also needs to be realno fakes, no really well-done copies, etc.and be cosmetically presentable.
Let me know if you or your guys come up with anything. Anyone who has a lead email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
