Þór and his father went to Formula Off Road competitions together so the interest has been there for many years. First he had a normal every-day jeep but buys a Street Legal car from Hafliði Guðjóns, probably the last manual Formula Off Road car. After that he bought the frame of Fríða Greys, prepared the car for a race in 1995, he competed for the next 1-2 years on that car. Still he lacked money and experience so this whole thing would work as it should so he and Elmar Jón Guðmundsson bought Heimasætan together. Þór and Elmar both competed on Heimasætan for few year and all was well, but then Þór borrows Hlébarðinn from Eyjólfi Skúla, which later on he bought for his own and goes by the name Mjölnir.
Eyjólfur Skúla and others build the car in the olden days and Þór Þormar bought it straight from Eyjólfur. The only thing that has changed in the car is the engine, transfer case, more powerful axles and suspensions front and back.
