My story with this car

I got it from a guy who bought it at auction, so not much is known about the car. I found a previous entry of this car for sale in the registry from 2017, and it stated 4 owners and service records at the time. I estimate I'm probably the 7th or 8th owner and the service records have disappeared. Based on what little info I've been able to scrape together, the engine was swapped in 2017 from a 740 turbo donor car by the Vol-Tech shop here in Portland.
I fully intend to keep this car until the end of its life, or mine haha. I plan on slowly modifying the car into an excellent handling street car.
