The Story

Somehow I ended up loving these cars by accident. Had it originally in 2020 and sold it and kicked myself for roughly 2 years. I bought another one but never had the same feeling as this one and I particularly wanted the Barcelona paint again which is difficult to find. In 2022 the owner ended up having to sell it. I bought it back and it will never be sold again. It's a problem child but it's my problem child.
