The Story

I originally saw a 20th of this car for sale by someone in my neighborhood and instantly was on the hunt for a version that I was able to afford at the time. One day walking out of school I saw this silver GTI drive past with a pretty loud diverter and knew I wanted that exact car. Once I got home I went in Craig’s list and sure enough, there it was, the silver mk4 GTI that I saw driving past. A week later I bought it and now it’s been mine since 2015.
