Kasperi, his wife Suski and their 2 year old son lives inside a single story house, the house also has an in door garage. Inside that garage is Kasperi’s 1974 Satsuma AMP, It was formerly owned by Kasperi’s dad till he gave It to his son (Kasperi) to assemble It back together; the car lived a long life and It seemed that final moment had came. When Kasperi was ready to go get groceries that day, he turned the key in ignition and the car seemed to be doing fine for now, but when on his way back he heard the knocking outside, It was so violent that It locked up the transmission which then made the car looses control, Kasperi foot down on the clutch and another foot on the brake, he stopped the car next to the road. The sun is about set down, If he doesn’t do something he would be frozen to death. So he went and stand in the middle of the road, waving both of his hand like a lunatic. many cars ignored him. many cars almost crash because of him. Then the bus approaches, Kasperi tried his best to block the path for the bus.The bus came to a stop. Bus driver angrily asked why is there a drunkard in the middle of the road waving their sausage arms. Kasperi told what happened and the driver willingly let him inside the bus, the bus was no where near the bus stop but this time bus driver stops because of Kasperi’s action. he left the car on the side of the road and brought his groceries with him inside the bus. Kasperi arrived at home around 9PM. he was late but at least he made It out alive. His wife and son had already went to bed. He put in his groceries then head to bed. It was clear to him that his car won’t make It this time so, next morning he went and look at his balance; He has around 100,000 Markka which would be enough to purchase a car. A cheap one. He decided that he would take this chance to go and look for his new car.
Kasperi perfers a small 5-doors hatchback, doesn't have to be anything fancy but he also doesn't want something that is too basic either.
He just want something that can replace his old rusting broken car but doesn't explode his wallet.

Hatchback need to be practical at very least, Kasperi will need room to store in his purchases and much bigger items
Fuel price in Finland has been increasing since the late 80’s and will continue to climb more, Kasperi would not want to be worry about refilling his new car at every gas station stops.
During the winter season, driving on the road becomes even more dangerous, Kasperi is a competent driver. but during winter sometime it’s unavoidable. also his wife would be driving from time to time.
Kasperi won’t have much money left after he purchased his new car, so he wouldn’t want to get into that “situation”.
Kasperi know he won’t get a new job anytime soon so he need at least a bit of money left to pay for bills and things for his wife; the cheaper the better for him.
Kasperi has some experience with fixing car when he was a bit younger but he definitely won’t have all the available spare parts in his garage, so he’s expecting that he doesn’t need to repair it too often.
Kasperi has been in a shitbox before, so he knows what It feels like to be sitting inside one, but he also doesn’t want to damage his prostate when driving over bumps.
Design (including interior)
While Kasperi isn’t looking for a resin-less bread he also wouldn’t want a burnt toast.
Kasperi knows what he’s getting when buying his new car but If It has no heater or at least a cushion on a seat he wouldn’t want to buy it either.
Kasperi expect his new car to be able to do some light snow driving since he lives in a rural area of Finland.
If the car cannot survive a 5 mph crash then, It’s off his list.
Realism should be taken into consideration.
It’s ok to submit a car that doesn’t have an interior, however decent interior design can help with the final judging.
If the 4.2 update happened to drop during this challenge, We’ll still stay in 4.1 till the challenge ended.
Remember to include the car heater If you’re going to design the interior.
Avoid using this specific body as It’s too broken, Your car will be binned.
