    I was searching for a new project car,a restauration project.I entered on the Copart website and I saw a crashed Volvo.After 30 minutes for searching on Google about this car,I went to Copart to see that car.When I saw it,I said:''I'm buying this car!''After a cold start and see all of the car problems,I bid 1.000$ on it.Surprisingly I won the auction.When I got back at my home I started to to fix it.After 1 mounth I drove it 2 days and I modified it.Added some Rally Lights,Coilovers,Added 150hp and more!That's my project!After 3 mounths I sold it for 20.000$ at a Rally Team!

    I bought this car two years ago,it had 150.000miles on it.In one year I made it up to 250.000miles.After a mounth I decided to modify it.After I modified it,I went to some trackdays,in a day I losed the control of the car and I crashed it in a wall.After a mounth of sitting in my backyard,I decided to restore it and make it very beautifull.I removed the wrecked parts,and putted new ones.After that I bought some modified parts and after that I repainted the car.Putted new wheels with new tyres.After that I get it on a Dyno and Dinoed it.It has around 200hp.Now the car is beautifull and it runs very well.I want to know other restorations from other people.Let them below this post!Have a good day boys!

    I had this car for a half year and at a red light someone rear ended me and I rear ended another one in front of me.This is my crashed car,a Toyota Camry 2,4 AWD.After the accident,a towtruck delivered my car.After 2 months of sitting,I started to repair it,but I decided to modify it.I swapped the engine from a 2.4 AWD to a 3.5 Race Engine with Race AWD.I changed the Suspension,Spring,Sway Bar,Rims (ETK TTSport Grey 19x10 Rear and ETK TTSport Grey 19x9 Front with Race Tyres) and the Differential.My new body parts has been delivered and I started to put them on the Camry.After all the mounting I went to my Local Car Inspection to see if the Camry can pass the Salvage Title and be an Rebuild Title.Surprisingly the Camry passed the Inspection and now's a Rebuild Title and now I can register it.After I registered it and putted some Utah Plates (Those look cool).Now I daily drive my little beast.After that I went to the local Copart Location in West Coast U.S.A. and I saw in their inventory the car wich rear ended me.I bought it for 400$ a Pure Sale and with some fees I paid 560$ for it.It's an Ibishu 200BX.I rebuilded the 200BX and now I have two cars that I love and daily drive them.Pics:
