  1. 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.

    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. 

     

     

     

  2. Hey everyone! So I used to be here often.... but I strayed for a while, got back into VW's, and various other things.... some may remember, most probably won't. ANYWAY! After my Lexus made me HATE owning a "newer" car, I decided it is time to get something "SIMPLE" again to daily. and here it is. 

     

    81' 720 - z22 - Nothing crazy. Got it from a buddy of mine, by trading him R33 GTR wheels for it 😂. she is rough, been sitting since 2014, LOTS of rust, but it has character, and I love that. Oh! that reminds me! She goes by Ladybug, because a previous owner decided at one point to cover rusty spots, by BRUSHING BLACK PAINT OVER THE SPOTS! A trend which will continue 😂

     

    Basic plans include: 

    -Roadkill it to run again

    -Relocate battery to bed (OG tray is DUST)

     

    THEN:

     

    -Cool wheels from Japan

    -Euro mk1 Vw front bumper (sorry, Dubber @ heart) [tested, doesn't fit]

    -US Spec Mk1 GTI front air dam (tested, doesn't fit)

    -Custom Tube rear bumper

    -Minor interior updates(steering wheel, shift knob, ect)

    -Weber 32/36

    -Header/full exhaust

     

    A few friends and I will be learning to Weld on this truck, so look forward to bad Amateur Rust repair 😂        Anyway, here's Pics

    WARNING! Progress will probably be sorta slow, as My Cabrio is still my first love, and Priority as a project.... I know. I'm dumb.

     

    Glad to be back guys 😈
