I think about two years.

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?

Why did you choose this car to purchase?
It was there and it looked like it'd be fun to beat on. Plus, I had already had a red Golf.

What other cars did you consider?

Seven shade red paint is obviously bling.

Who helped you build this car?
