This is my 2001 VW Cabrio. This car has been my passion project for about 4 years now. Not everyone's taste, But it is mine.
I bought it four years ago for 450$ cause I was in need of a car. And since then she has gone from a cheap beater, to a full on project. anyway, here are some transformation pics from over the years.
The day I bought her.
Stayed like that for a while, Until I bent a few wheels on a NASTY Pothole
Then she got some 16" Porsche wheels
after that, Clear Tail lights, Lowered on some used Coilovers, and debadged & rebadged the trunk
Then I accidentally backed one of my OEM Mirrors into a door.... So instead of spending 500$ replacing and repainting them.... I installed Power FD RX7 door mirrors, that work with my OEM Switch.
Then I traded my 71' Bug for my first Set of Bigboy wheels. 17x8 Stern Face 2
Around that time, I also made a badgeless grille, and had the hood notch filled, and Hood repainted. Also tried my hand at some underglow... The night before this show. lol
She basically stayed like that for a while. Nothing too crazy, except installing Camber plates up front.
After a while, I went a bit crazy and Raised the Engine, and fiddled with the front suspension to fit a 17x9 +2 setup up front.
And once again, stayed like that for a while.
During that time, I also finished my Underglow, Way too much time into that system... And installed 5ft Takeyari Pipes.....
After That I Installed My Fiero Spoiler. And after that it didn't Really change for a Year or so.
Then I Totally Lost it....
Made the Jump to 18" wheels.... Lambo Doors.... Custom Front bumper made using a Fiberglass Camry Bumper... And WAY More to come.
This is where We sit now,
Anyway, I know it's bad, But I love it. And this is my main Focus. My Datsun will be a fun toy I can Take up dirt roads, and mess around in, while being able to fix cheap and relatively easy. This however is my Passion project.
