      Whats going on everyone? Well I always had a passion for VW ever since my uncle had his 91 GTI when I was 7-8yrs old. Well the following in Sacramento where I grew up was non existant (unless its really deep underground) so I never had the fuel to keep the fire going. Well I decided to move to the greatest place on earth, the good ol' PNW where my buddy at work has a MK3. As soon as I seen it and seen all the awesome VW's around this neck of the woods I knew it was meant to be.

      SO I decided to sell my GT Eclipse to fund a car I had been eyeballing for about 2 months. After hoping and praying the guy had it still when I sold my car I decided to hit him up. Low and behold he still had it. Sold my Car and the very next day I took a trip up north to pick it up and drive it back home. The entire drive I felt like I was a kid again and even now a week and half later I still just want to gas it all the way up and drive until it runs out of fuel.

      Enjoy the pictures and the car. I am sure many of you have seen this car on here before as I am using the same pictures.

      This is her first fuel up before heading home with her.


      And more:

      What suspension are you using ? Car looks good though, do you have a picture of how the front wheels stretch compared to the rears? And any more of how it sits?

      Suspension is Raceland Coilovers. I am looking to replace them in time. Front wheels didnt have a stretch on them. Here is a picture of how it sits now. It is going in the shop for a complete body overhaul and brand new paint job tomorrow!

      I have a buddy name Brandon Holland out of McMinnville that is doing it. He has done a bunch and just finally got into his new shop where you see the car in now. Still setting up but I am the first car in his new place. Hit me up and I can shoot you some info on a way to get a hold of him.

      More pics taken today. If anyone is interested in knowing the paint is Tornado Red with a Red to Green Pearl. She is about to go through her Cut/Buff Stage so she will look like glass. Should have her back in my hands on Sunday!

      RS's are gone brotha.

      Finally got my car back from paint yesterday and threw my new Smoked Banana's and Smoked E-Codes on. My smoked big bumpers have different plugs than what I have on my car so I have to figure out a way to get them wired up.
