He's driver's seat is there, why's his steering wheel on the wrong side Laughing I'm sure that was funny like once...

Anyhow, looks like a nice car, I wish I got that for my 17th.

Some people choose to have engine immobilizers, some car alarms, but i choose to remove the drivers seat. I'm saving up money for a car alarm as carrying round the car seat gets bit heavy, and people look at me funny Laughing
