Continuation of the thread in MK2 section so heres a tribute to my second love, the MK1 :D

These next few MK1's are my favourite examples, but feel free to add to it :cool:

Big Ron's VR6
Built with parts from his legendary MK2, dutchman 'Big' Ron Huijzer built this stunning MK1. Won PVW car of the year 2005 and is crammed with genius custom touches; such as the coolant expansion tank built into the strut brace.
Specs
Engine: Chromed 2.8 VR6 on ITB's in a smoothed bay with a VW racing 6 speed straight cut gearbox
Chassis: Custom shortened H&R coilovers. Porsche fitment 16x8.5/9 BBS RS. Porsche 968 brakes
Exterior: All panels & doors replaced with new ones, painted Touran Bambus Grey, carbon fibre bumpers, arches pulled
Interior: Stripped interior with chromed cage, sparco reclining racing seats. Early dash, porsche carpets.
What makes it special?: Super cool & most complete MK1. Has it all.
