Your Name:
AJ Smith

Car's Name:
Maggie

Model/Year:
1985 GTI

How long have you had your car?
Just over a year

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?
Not that I'm aware of.

Why did you choose to purchase this car?
It was a good price, I've always wanted a mk2, and my buddy needed the money.

Does anything in particular influence the direction you take when modifying your car?
So far it's kinda been OEM+ish. But I'm thinking about a new direction.

What would you do to the car if money were no object?
TD swap and/or shaved bay, maybe a full respray in stratos blue. Turn my bottlecaps into 3 piece. There are a lot of things.

Who has been your biggest critic of this project?
Me, myself, and I. And Ricky.
