me and my friend are were talking about cars and he told i had a 240
Could refer to the specific make of the car, as majikthise said. Also could refer to the engine size (my car had a 350 in it - which would be a Chevy 350 V8)
Well if you were talking about cars, "... 240 ..." could refer to a Nissan 240 :
-- Best wishes - Majikthise.
It could refer to a popular model Volvo (of Sweden) made. I drive a Volvo 240 and, despite its age, it still drives well with no major "issues".
There were several variations. I guess if yours has an engine capacity around 3 litre, (3000cc) it may have a 240 horsepower specification.
i ended up asking him what that was... majikthise you are correct it is a nissan 240
so i have a mitsubishi eclipse 95' what would that be called?
