Ok so some of you know what the 24hrs of lemons is, the $500 car endurance race. MY shop Evil Genius Racing ( EGR) has been into this popular venue for a little while now, this is my 4th lemons car ive built, ive caged a dozen or so others but this one is finally mine. should be easy right? :lol:
Bought this pile off craiglist Sacramento for 5 bills, it was a sad v8 conversion project that the PO did not finish, all i wanted was the ford 302 and T5 stuffed into it for another one of my cars: a '75 Volvo 242. my first Lemons cars was a 302 powered volvo, the "V8olvo" and ever since i drove it and won the last Buttonwollow lemons race i wanted one of my own, for the street, but thats another story. But then i realized this ugly pee yellow Toy could have potential.
so here it is, ill update as i can. the race we are shooting for is in May
the car as i got it
the wheels and tires were crap so i but on some 4x4.5" rims i had around, some Rx7 rims
now the fab work done was horrid, these pic say it all
yes the oil drain plug is resting ON the swaybar
