24 Hours Of LeMons / Chump Car Volvrolet Team Rubber Chicken Piccata

My friend Jim and I are well....certifiable. We entered the 2009 Arse Freeze-a-palooza at thunderhill raceway with this gem. Its my buddy Justin's old 88 Volvo 740. After some suspension wizadry, a welded diff, and some decent brakes, I managed a 2:26 and some change on the long course at Thunderhill. Things didnt go so well on my second stint out when the all powerful 94hp stock motor decided to go poof. It now has a mild Chevy 350 and a 700r4 tranny and is almost ready for the Chump car race at Infineon raceway (sears point) on Jan 8,9,10. Please note the wild wing....its funny.
