Your Name: Abby

Car's Name: Nina

Model/Year: 2008 GTI

How long have you had your car?

-almost a year now

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?

-When I first bought the car I had to learn the Volkswagen life first hand immediately and replace and upgrade the intake cam.

Why did you choose to purchase this car?

-Pure excitement, and stupidity over owning my first GTI and my first Volkswagen.

Does anything in particular influence the direction you take when modifying your car?

-Not really, I sorta come up with things as it goes.

What would you do to the car if money were no object?

-BAGS!!! (even though Pat would murder me) :p

Who has been your biggest critic of this project?

-Pat, if it wasn't for him the car wouldn't run, and I wouldn't know as much as I do about my car.

Personal Message or Special Thanks:

-Pat, Parker, Jason, My brother Matt, Brian, John, Mike, and anyone else who helped with the process of getting my car running and driving again. If it wasn't for you guys I wouldn't own this car, and probably would be driving a honda (crying every day I drove it) because my parents were not happy that my first car I bought was a complete Lemon.

Wheels/Tires: stock
