His Statement Reads As Follows:
“My dream is to be an automobile engineer because of my passion for cars and machines. Some of these constructions took me sometimes, especially the Lamborghini, which is the longest I have constructed so far. I mainly used Dunlop, aluminum, superglue, copper, and wires. I can construct a real car if I have the machines.”
