Default Heeb Chump Car 245

I realized I never posted about my chump car figured I could throw some pics up..
1991 Volvo 245 I bought it for $150 for parts and ended up building it into our chump car. The inside was trashed and the outside was not much better.. We have not been any nicer but its faster now..

Currently we have raced the car 4 times and 1 track day

Charlotte 1+1+1+1+8hour "NA automatic miserably slow but reliable"
Road Atlanta 14hour " Turbo automatic much faster but not reliable"
Daytona 14hour "Better Turbo and 5 speed Even faster and more reliable but still failure"
Atlanta Motorsports Park 7+7hour "More upgrades finished 11th on Saturday and DNF on Sunday"


Small rundown of parts and stuff
IPD springs, koni yellows, IPD front bar, Hawk Black pads, 60/.63 turbo, MSextra, S60 green injectors, walbro 255 intank feeding surge tank and bosch 044 feeding main rail, toyota w58 transmission, hybrid bell housing, POS GD Spec clutch, honda clutch master cyl, OMP driver seat, ATL fuel cell, welded 3.73 diff, 04-05 STI wheels, some fancy gauges, 940 radiator and intercooler, homemade roll cage, fire suppression system,
