Mk3 VW Golf – Roxy

The VW scene is one i truly admire. The haters can hate all they want, but I’m always browsing v-dub sites for inspiration and ideas. People who modify VW’s tend to try new things first without caring what other people think, and they also strive to be different and think outside the square. I see their culture as being closer to hot-rodding then “tuning” (hate that word), as their rides have a real emphasis on character.

One such ride is Roxy the Mk3 Golf, a themed build with a vintage racing/bobber Harley feel, the real highlights are in the details. Check out the seats, custom fuel-cell, hinged in-dash gauge pods, hand-made badge, vintage cloth wrapped spark leads, etc etc.

Roxy is built by jkrate, graphic designers from Virginia. Graphic Designers make the best car builders, and I’m not saying that just because I am one, but because I know that they see their car as a complete composition, not just a bunch of parts thrown together. I love builds like this, and I can honestly say it has inspired me.

thanks to Ray for the heads-up on this one.

There are so many cool details and custom touches, so make sure you visit the build blog and see it all for yourself, there are heaps of pics, so you should be kept busy for a while:
