Are you ready for another dose of Volkswagens? Let's begin with my second part of the coverage of the M.I.V.W event. In the opening shot we can see the Golf 6 that's been built by G-werks with the gorgeous Rotiform BLQ wheels, the wheels went from silver to white to give it even more impact.
Another shot of the mk5 from TUK Customs just because I can. This car has so much presence on the show floor I had to stop and look at it every time I walked past it.
This Dutch built mk1 is a very special car and it deserves a feature of its own. So be on the lookout in the next few days.
One of the many mk3s on the show ground. This particular version had a set of Porsche Boxter wheels with a matte black finish. Behind the wheels are also a set of Porsche brakes. I really like the modification with the Vento headlights, it really freshens up the front end.
Here is a more traditional look for the mk3. If I had to choose I would take the first one with the Porsche wheels.
You gotta represent right? I spotted this sticker…
…mk6 on airbags. This car was one of the first cars in Holland with bags. The car rolls on a set of 3 piece 18" RH wheels with a AMG centers.
A typical scene at these kind of events. The vibe was great and everybody had a great time.
Inside the VW community are a lot of lifestylers (is that even a word?) Caps, tattoos and wayfarers seems to be the popular choice of accessories.
Talking about a mirror effect.
I even got a minute to talk with Elliott Roberts, the editor of Performance VW. He came to visit the event with his side project Wheel Whores. He even gave me on of these t-shirts that were almost sold out at the event.
Back to cars with this immaculate mk1 in a absolute show and shine condition. I wonder if the owner even drives this thing.
Just take a look at this shiny engine bay. And yes that is a fully chromed 1.6 liter Oettinger engine. Also notice the filling cap for the cooling liquid on the strutbar.
Everything that hadn't been painted orange got the chrome treatment including the brackets for the exhaust.
One of the hangars was reserved for the aircooled versions of the Volkswagens. They weren't as popular as their watercooled counterparts but I did find some very nice examples.
Like this all black and chrome beetle on classic Fuchs wheels.
No flashy paintjobs on these old beauties.
I really liked this Beetle with its white wall wheels and side view mirrors on the fenders. It had all the right details.
I spotted this Seat on my way to the show & shine hangar. It had one of my favorite sets of wheels, the Schmidt Modern Lines.
Your favorite company car with a set of Rotiform BLQ's, a perfect combination.
Another shot of the mk5 with the chrome HRE wheels running on bags. Inside the interior a purple bomb exploded, everything was covered in the same hue.
This mk5 right next to it had a blue theme inside the interior.
Again a perfect execution.
I'll be back soon with my third and last installment of the M.I.V.W event.
