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.

Shit happened...


It takes quite alot to total a volvo.
But 30 days ago, a pickup demolished the 242.
A severely drunk man ran a red light going 150km/h, right into the side of the volvo.
(Protip, watch out in the cross sections, ALWAYS check before you go even if you got green.)
I've spent last month in hostpital, broke my arm, and sprained practically everything.

Thankfully, insurancy money came in and i bought a new hunk o' junk.

(Excuse the bad photoshopping)



It's a 240sx Vert! With a special twist, its 2JZ swapped, N/A.
There is a catch though, the top doesnt really go up. Who needs a top anyway?




Cut springs, jumps up and down like a kid on spice. Welded diff and steelies from a Insignia. Home-made racing slicks, made in my driveway. ;)
Bushings made of spit and tape. The car isnt really in that great of a shape.

The plan is to fix it up and slide it, but i really need something else to daily...

A late weekend with the boys


Well well, i kind of spent some money on the vert...
It kinda got out of hand last thursday while i was browsing ebay with my friends.
I ended up ordering some stuff, and now i have to live on instant noodles until next paycheck comes in.




They kind of went ham and did whatever they wanted to it

But hey! It's kind of becoming pretty rad if i say so myself, thats really great because there is
a drift event coming up soon. I'll have to stock up on tires now that i think about it.
