It's pretty obvious Kelu NEVER owned a GT. He just stole pictures of others and posted as his own. What is really surprising is how many event he went to and stood near someone else's car for a photo. The three bandidos that went over there never saw the car either. They were forced to ride in a very slow sedan.

May the Schwartz be wit you

I still own my previous bike, I just borrowed for some years, I didn't get payment for it.

Even so, I don't pretend around to own one like others ;)
