Now, I know that title is very controversial. Many people have very different views on building a “show car”. Some people aren’t fans of show cars and I am not here to disagree. I personally love when a car gets driven they are supposed to, but I also love full restoration type builds that are pieces of art when done. As someone who accepts VIP applicants for a car show, I think as a community, some have forgotten what a “show car” actually is. We have been overwhelmed with the popularity of air ride and “stance” that many think all they need to do is throw on a dope set of wheels and be super low, and they’ve got a show stopper. In many ways they do, since it’s what is so popular now-a-days. But like I said, we are seeing less and less full builds. Not too sure if it’s a bad thing just yet, but I hope we can all get back to really enjoying the journey of a build instead of looking for attention and internet fame.
Below is a perfect example of what I believe a show car really is. Details, details, details!! Many custom parts and shopping list of mods. This right now, is my favorite build of the year. And it’s going to be pretty hard to top, as you can see.
I’m sure you guys are tired of me proving that other countries like Japan and German get better cars then us. But it is for a good reason, I guess it’s the same with american cars not being in other countries. When it comes to this subject it really makes the car that much more special when we see one, because of it’s rarity, exclusivity. An Audi 100 is a car we really never hear about, let alone see, but it is very much a classic. When I saw that they had made a coupe my jaw almost dropped to the floor. I mean, just look at the car, the lines are absolutely perfect in every way. It’s an Audi definition of beauty. Why aren’t there more modded like this in Europe? I want one NOW!
This is why I go nuts every year over the Worthersee Tour. Not only does an entire town get taken over by European cars, but most of the cars are top quality. All of the heavy hitters on the continent seem to make the trip every year. I must save 200 pictures each year from the show, just so much to capture and I’m sure I don’t get all of it. The car pictured below is a PERFECT example of the uniqueness of Worthersee and the quality of cars attending. A car that would be looked over by most, if not all the Audi 100, but is giving a complete build. To the naked eye this car still looks stock besides the wheels, but if you look closer you’ll see the work done. Carbon fibers front and rear bumpers, mirrors, side mouldings, and even wheels! And you can see the turbo poking out of the engine bay so you know this Audi is putting out power. I absolutely love that they kept everything stock looking. Such an unassuming car to those who don’t have the knowledge. I love it !
