The Story

I originally found this car for a buddy back in 2020. He drove it till the fall of 2021 where he had an accident. He bought the car back from the insurance company and sold me the car to be fixed. Repairing the front end damage wasn't to difficult. I used a 06 Volvo XC70 to pull out some of the bent metal near the head lights, used multiple parts from my friends parts car, put the hood and bumper from the car, and it was ready to go. I've had to replace the right front cv axle and the angle gear (blew up the original one and current one leaks badly, but I have 3 more to put in the car). The plan for the car is to be a fun weekend car/ track car during summer. And for winter, its going to be used as a fun car to get through the snow. It will become a full time daily once the current daily is no longer safe to be driven on the roads.
