Hello!


My name is Kevin and i live in eastern Valo, recently moved in from LA and ive got to say, i love this place!
The car scene here is fantastic.

Over to my car.

After i moved in i also bought a new car as i sold every car i had and i needed a new car so i could get to work.
Its an old, rusty, hotrod-ish Volvo 240 from -78. From what i heard from the previous owner, the original engine (B21A)
got some bad rodnock and eventually failed. So he put in a 16-Valve volvo engine instead from a newer 740 volvo that he imported from europe. He turbocharged the engine and its pushing around 340BHP and 550Nm of torque.





Altough the car is very exciting to drive, the handling is kind of non existent. Imagine trying to keep a 340BHP car on the road while having suspension made out of swiss cheese. Not so great. Ill have to order some coilovers for it because it really needs it.
