    Thread: VWvortex Feature Car: Jay Fay's Flat Black GTI

    1. 03-08-2006 12:11 PM #1
      If Good Will Hunting Drove a Dub…
      Author: Cherise LaPine
      If one thing can be said for the Volkswagen world, it’s that there’s never a shortage of inspiration. Most cars have stories behind them, but Bostonian Jay Fay’s GTI is an everyday reminder that good things happen to good people. Thanks to the members of DubAudi Gruppe and club.broke.status, a dream came true for one of New England’s most well-known Volkswagen drivers. A television crew wasn't there to capture the moment, unfortunately, but that's where VWVortex comes in... Full Story and Gallery

      very nice GTI, the flat black and shiny ATS Cups is an amazing combination.
      definitely background material!

      Jay, I am glad you like the way the story came out. It was a pleasure to write. I hope I someday get to meet you and your friends.

      I've grown up around VW's and jus recently gotten into the scene pretty bad. i have always watched overhaulin and thought how great it would be to do it for a dubber. and it finally has happened to Jay and i couldn't be happier (eventhough idk who he is) his 1st reaction is everything i thought it would be b/c i too would feel the same way if someone did that to a VW that i love (My mk2 which has been sold ) i still dream bout gettin another one day and doin a swap until then i can read these hot warming stories (I'm not gay) lol
      AND JAY IF UR READING THIS
      congrats man

      It was an honor to see Jay break into tears. What other reaction can you really have when you expect to see an 8v and theres a polished up VR staring you in the face? Glad to see Dereks '95 lives on too...I remember when he brought that thing home... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] to a great story and great people...

      Reading something like that comes to show the difference between the VW croud and the Honda and other crouds. Granted yes it might have happened in another car scene but there is always ample love to go around in the VW croud. We might have some people that act tough and talk down to others but in the end, it is still all about the car. Which is why I will never leave the VW scene.
