Thread: Running out of Gas can be really alright... *photos*

  1. #1

    Default Running out of Gas can be really alright... *photos*

    In hindsight, I havent put gas in the rabbit which is my wife jes's car since pulling it out for the first time this spring. The good news is, all the gas from over the winter is definitely gone. The bad news is I didnt really get to where I wanted to go. I was driving around looking for a place to shoot some photos of the car at sunset. I wanted something showing pastures, and expansive farmland. The good news is. I ran out of gas around exactly that. I wish I could have been a bit more mobile, and it wasnt EXACTLY what I was going for, and the car was immobile the whole time...but what else was I supposed to do while waiting for Jes to bring me gas?

    Car is static. The car used to have bagyard crap, but the ride and quality was terrible. The oil pan is custom shortened. the front control arm mounts are wearing themselves some clearance every time its driven. Theres a bunch of stuff left to do to the car yet, but I'm the one who has to do it, so...yeah. It'll get there.















    and bonus shot.

    ....you stink like new car....

    loving it,

    loved it since it was built, such a clean and simple style, without going over the top smoothing/shaving etc etc.

    I liked the old wheels, esp the colour combo, but the new wheels are ace too!

    Great shots, as always.

    (p.s., you build some cool mk 1's, this pleases me! and insipres me too! )

    oh, and you're running H&R ultra lows? Or ultra ultra?

    I miss the old wheels too, but 30 hole RS's are extremely brittle, and the barrels are fucking expensive...

    I love the shots, Kris. Another great shoot.

    Car is looking great as well. Part of my thursday night was devoted to reading back in the car's build thread on vortex for a little inspiration. It's come out looking excellent.
