To start things off, this will be a living first post. I'm sure it will change many times, by many people. With that being said, I (03_uni-B) might as well dive right in.
A few of us (03_uni-B, Agentmaddock, ridefast07) have a sickness. And whether all of us will admit it or not, it's a real thing. We have each owned multiple vw's and comically 28793465724 mk4's, not including ones we have parted to help others live on. So, here we are, currently with 3 mk4's in the driveway, 1 in the woods, and multiple engines, transmissions and many parts in a storage unit. And a certain mk2 popping in now and again.
We wanted to start a thread on vortex (why not?? it's still the cool thing to do, and by far better than Instagram fame, or stupid facebook pages) to help keep up with all our mk4 activities. For multiple reasons. First off, to share. I know myself (03_uni-b) wouldn't have met either of these guys if it wasn't for these stupid cars. And that can be said for many awesome and knowledgeable people along the way. Second, to help keep us motivated in what we are doing, not that we need motivation, its a sickness remember? Third, a place for use to post things that we find relevant. Such as; DIY's, other threads with good information, parts, companies to buy from, etc. And lastly, the greatest reason of them all, because we are making mk4's gReat again! (that will make total sense eventually I promise)
With that out of the way, might as well highlight the 3 of us that will be doing the work. Or two, depending on who you talk to...
Here are our previous cars.

Agent Maddock - 47 mk4's, current owner of the "gorf", and mad scientist behind a lot of this...

ridefast07 - The enabler. Since he isn't here I can honestly write whatever I want about him.....but I guess I'll refrain for now. His old TDI which got parted and used for one of Agent Maddock's cars
