272Heroes meet

Let me say straight away, if you haven’t heard of 272heroes get over to http://www.272heroes.com to meet some awesome people and some epic cars. Right onwards, many people say that cars in the UK are not up to spec with cars over in the US and other parts of the world, the guys on the forum at 272Heroes are proving everyone who thinks that wrong! This was my first experience with these guys and was cool to meet some awesome people who really do love their cars and that is what i’m all about. I was expecting a smallish group of people with a couple of cool cars dotted here and there but what i got was a car park full of EPIC cars! These guys know how to do a car meet…..

Firstly i’m going to kick this off with a RWD corsa, yep you heard that right!

 This ford focus looked all kinds of mental. Awesome paint.

 BGW for the win
 Was loving the old school on display

 Soo much love for this silvia.

 This well fitted s13 was sitting so pretty

 And definitely not forgotten, Daze’s drift spec s13

What a cracking night. Great guys. Great cars. Great site. http://www.272heroes.com


Simple but affective

I remember a friend telling me about this car when i was first getting into vdubs. “Slammed golf on air ride” now that i had to see. Driving down the road you could spot it from a mile off. A blue golf absolutely decked on chrome wheels and sparkling clean. Its come a long way since that first time i saw it and its developed into something quite special. A car that stands out at first but its not until you get quite close to it till you see the real detail behind it. Finally after months of discussion i managed to get the owner out for a shoot..
It’s no longer running air ride due to a few problems with it, he kinda lost faith and realised that really static is so much cooler.
He has a miltek exhaust fitted which provides a nice rumble on turnover but doesn’t bellow through a car park. He also has US spec rear bumpers and a smaller VW badge fitted.

Some of the little details include having a 4motion front and rear valance, lupo mirrors, heko wind deflectors and full leather interior including some lovely s3 seats.
The wheels are 19″ BMX x5. They are 9j upfront and 10j out back with 20mm spacers all around. All arches rolled and smooth.
I’m looking forward to seeing what the future has for this car and to see it develop even further through the years as i’m sure he doesn’t have the heart to let it go.
