The Story

This is my first car. At 16 years old, I got it in March of 2022. Now, it's April of 2023, I'm 17, and I'm very happy with the progress I've made. This car means a lot to me because it shows me that the ideology of "You can do anything you set your mind to!" was real. My parents are not car people, and they actually hate the fact that I wanted to modify my car (hence the SRYDAD German Plate on the front), but it's something I had wanted to do since before I could remember. Throughout the entire build, I was not allowed to manual swap it, I was not allowed to keep parts at my house, I was not allowed to work in the driveway or garage, and I had the title held over my head multiple times. Now, I wait for my broken transmission to get replaced, and after that, I am finally being forced to bring the car back to stock before I graduate High School in May. I can't wait to start a new build without limitations when I move out in August.
