Vdubs. What’s the the first thing that pops in your head when I say that? For me it’s rat/hood style. I love it, the patina, the stance, wacky stuff strapped to the roof. What I love most about it is that it draws it’s inspiration from the roots of hot rodding in the 50s, tattered old pre war cars put back on the road with some heat under the hood. Admit it, the hood ride VWs have a lot more fun and creative freedom than the hard parking JDM Honda guys.
This Golf is on a whole other level, drawing more from the heavily reworked cruiser sleds of the 40s and 50s. It’s like the builder totally ignored the fact that he had a Golf and built it just the way you would a 1950 Mercury.
Big chrome toothy grin just like so many lead sleds, proper satin paint rather than rattle can flat, with a period correct contrasting pop color
Details everywhere, just check out the hand pinstripping where no one will ever see it
Beautifully weathered shop logo on the door, somewhere between WW2 aircraft nose art and a Sailor Jerry tattoo
Head liner that could hang in a museum, done in the same style
Theme is carried over everywhere
More beautiful tattoo style airbrush work over ghost flames
This thing is done RIGHT, it stands alone.
Some EGs on Work Lead Sleds, I think I like these better than the Shotguns. They’re a perfect fit and a very refreshing look on the beautiful rich deep burgundy one.
