Sarasota, Fla. — Only in the south is late winter appropriate for the grand opening of a tuning shop, but the mere mention of 1552 has historically been enough to draw a crowd.
That’s right, 1552 is back. Though technically it's now "version 2," the spirit that put 1552 Design on the map is alive and well in Sarasota. After a couple of false starts, Brad Beardow (along with new partner Shawn Grawunde) decided to take another shot, and fifteen52 v.2 was launched January 1 of this year. The shop’s open house was held March 16, and over 100 guests showed up to catch a glimpse of the new space and show off their cars. The presence of a Performance VW photographer, as promised, certainly didn’t hurt.
