History
What started out as a favor to a cousin who was a father to be became an obsession. He had no space for such a vehicle after getting married and moving to a new building with small parking. Wife and baby was more important and my garage much bigger. At first he just dropped off the vehicle with keys. One trip, two trip, three trips and I was hooked. Only wheeled with HUMVEEs (USMC years past) before and I wanted more. Long story short; the car is under my care and maintenance, tecnically I dont "own" it, only the garage it sits in, but whats the difference when im the one making the upgrades and sitting behind the wheel!
