The Story

A Golf R for me was a dream car! I have always loved Volkswagens and I have had a mark 6 GTI for a really long time and just loved the GTI and was heavily in the car world from the time I was little with my family but about 2 years ago I stopped and focused on my life and got my dream Job on the railroad and got a house and then it was time for me to get my dream car so it was time to get back into the automotive world. I'm just now starting to build it so give me time and if anyone has any input on building the mark 7 R please hit me up at @That_1railroader

What's up everyone!! I am a big Volkswagen fan but I also love anything with wheels. I currently have a 2016 Golf R that I'm starting to build. I have owned a variety of different cars in my years but I always seem to come back to a Volkswagen lol.
