Yeah it's not too bad - just has a few minor rush issues and needs some TLC. Haha I'm getting a lot of comments from people saying that they thought the show was fake. I guess the show was real but they didn't make much money or get many views.


Update: The Fastback is still in the shop - the engine and transmission is getting looked at today and they will let me know what it needs to be running again and pass the emission.

Update: I talked to my mechanic and he says there are quite a bit of things that needs to be worked on as far as the mechanical side of the Fastback. So I went ahead and gave him the green light to start working on it. When it's done, I will do my best to take pictures of the work that was done to the car. It may take a while for him to do all the work so we gotta be patient!

Update: I will be coming home from college to check on the car this weekend. My mechanic says it will take a few months (hopefully 2 months, but 3 the latest) to do all the work that needs to be done. I will be taking pictures of the Fastback so expect a few new ones from me this weekend!

On the side, this Fastback came with the original color of Medium Aqua - I think I'm going to stick with that color. What do you guys think?

Looks like this:

The underside of the hood and the engine bay will be painted jet black. The interior of the car will be black as well. Not too sure about the wheels yet.
