Topic: 1985 Volvo 740 turbo wagon caged, almost there. SOLD!

Similar cars have won overall more than once... Manual 4 speed with OD.  Has a legal(well, way more than legal, with tapered NASCAR door bars, roof bar, rear diagonal, dash bar, etc) Evil Genius Cage. fits big (or small) drivers easily.  4 almost new Direzzas on alloy wheels.    Has Volvo wiring woes, I'm colorblind, I can build great cages, build engines, seat mounts. etc, but wiring is my Achilles's heal.     Engine is in good shape, has new timing belt and some other new parts, boost controller, cold air intake, well hung performance exhaust, etc...   it made about 200 hp, 225 tq before the wiring packed up and went to Valhalla.  Nothing's melted, mind you, but the wiring harnesses in these 740s are known to have issues.   It can probably be fixed easily by someone who is good at wiring or even can see colors correctly.     Ready for whatever theme you can throw at it.   Car is in Davis, California and I have truck and trailer and can help deliver within reasonable distance.        Last one of these I sold working went for $5K and is still racing in CA, some 6 years and 20ish races later.    Take advantage of my disability (you horrible person) and get a great deal on a car with great potential.     Call John at 916-275-1038 or email john@evilgeniusracing.com

Quasars are massive and extremely remote celestial objects that emitting exceptionally large amounts of energy, and typically having a starlike image when viewed in a telescope. Some theories state that quasars  could contain massive black holes and may be a stage in the evolution of some galaxies. But I'm assuming that's not what you meant...

The car is awesome.  The engine has just begun to give up the ghost.  We were at Laguna Seca in October and on Sunday it was clear we were down on power climbing the hill to the corkscrew.  I just did the math: we've done 9 races on that motor.  Besides little things like a broken throttle pulley mount or a broken alternator ground wire, we have had zero trouble with the motor.  Do you remember how many races were on the motor before we bought the car?

Hope to be at Button Terrible with a new (to us) motor.

if someone in SoCal wants it, I can tow it for the price of fuel. I'll be up there this weekend and you'll have to convince me to drive the tow pig and bring my trailer.

What can possibly go wrong.  Wiring can't be that hard, right?
