It takes a lot of dedication to completely restore a car. It takes even more dedication to restore a car when it’s difficult to find parts in your country. The small bumper MK2 in this video is my favorite build of all time when it comes to second generation golfs. It is really perfect in every aspect. Nothing was overdone, and every single part was replaced, OEM. It’s really great to see people from around the world with the same passions and building incredible cars.
I think this first gen. GS is the first in the states to rock oni-camber on a static setup, but I could be wrong. I think it’s pretty badass. It takes so much balls to rock a car this low and wide. I’ve heard that a correct toe-in on the tires, and you save a lot of tread. Who know exactly what “alot” is, but I’m sure anything helps with such a extreme setup. Prop to the owner for going this hard.
I don’t have kids yet, but these cambered out vans continue to grow on me. I’d love to see more guys modding these like this here in the states. I still think the next movement here is gunna be the demon camber that you see all over Japan. Maybe we just need to grow bigger balls. Oh, and a bigger bank account for all the tires we’ll be buying. Ha!
Now, I would never build half the trucks on this video, but do have a huge respect and love for body dropped rides. There is a lot of work that goes into a body drop and I can respect the dedication that goes into a project like that. I do want to eventually have a hand at a body drop dually and vw bus so I like to keep up with the new-new in the truck world. Definitely dope to see these trucks driven so damn low.
Having a MK1 in my garage is slowly convincing me that the MK1 golf 2-door is the most beautiful body style, ever. It’s so simple, yet such beautiful lines, and the usability factor of the hatch makes the car a ultimate package. I am planning on building a small bumper, but these plastic euro bumper look so damn sexy. These cars are pimp.
It’s been a while since I updated you with my Rabbit project. The motor is out and long gone, and the 16 valve is in a ready to get wired up. My initial plans with this car was for a full restoration, but I got pretty tired of it sitting in the garage, so I want to get it on the road. The resto will come later. For now, I just want to drive the car, so it’s not going to be the cleanest swap. My deadline is Southern Worthersee. We’ll see how it goes, we have a lot of work ahead of us.
I have been following Deus for a pretty long time now. They really know how to build great looking bikes. Based in Australia they have a huge background in surfing and it really shows in their products. I really love everything about their company and how its run. It’s been a dream of mine to run a creative place of business, rather then just a store. Huge props to these guys for creating a special place many people can enjoy.
Chip Foose was someone I always looked up to when it came to people who are talented, passionate, and humble about there success. Back even before he became world famous with his TV shows, I always loved his designs, and the flawless cars he would build. The cars that his team would basically build from the ground up to win the Ridler Awards and such, left me speechless. The flawless builds with perfect execution is inspiring. The video below makes me love him even more! A ’85 GTI, out of all the cars he owned and build, was one that left an impact on him. So dope. And on top of that he draws up a GTI that any of us in the dub community would love to own. The guy has talent.
