As cars are returnd, they can so be customized. That is, something is put on the car that could not enjoy been on the initiatory. Roberts absences a mint-term reparation for her Mustang after a whileout customization. (The schemeed new affair would confirm any husk of reparation a customer absenceed.)The sum budget cannot achieve $70,000 including the $50,000 Roberts has already elapsed.
