As another week comes to an end, we bring you Forum Friday, and a short list of the discussion threads we found while prowling the web in search of people like you with stories to tell right here on Gearbox Magazine.
Speaking of you, if you come across any cool threads you think the gearhead universe should know about, let us know! We’ll make sure everyone knows it was YOU who told us about the thread. You can share links with us through our contact form, on our Facebook page, or on Twitter (where you can get sneak peeks behind the curtain at Gearheads-United if you’re not yet with us over there). Whatever works for you!
This week: VW Love
I Hate Money…
An epic MkI Scirocco restoration taking place over on the Vortex. Says owner veedubtek, “I decided that I should try and restore a mk1 rocco. No holds barred. Start with a decent shell, strip it down to absolutely NOTHING, and build it from the ground up. I’ve been a Vw guy forever. I’ve been a master Vw tech for seemingly forever. I’ve never attempted something like this, and there is a good chance I’m gonna regret it. But, it’s gonna happen. It’s gonna be driven daily. And it’s gonna be exactly like I, (read, ME!), thinks Vw should’ve built it. It’s gonna take years, and way too much money…but it starts something like this here.”

This thread is PACKED with pictures of cool V-dubs. This event actually took place right here in the Phoenix area and we’re disappointed we missed it. Sure, we were in southern California at the time, but it looks like the weather – and turnout – was perfect. There’s something about the older Volkswagens juxtaposed against the more modern ones that makes this selection of pictures awesome. Special thanks to Misbehavin’Motorsports for taking and sharing all the images (including the one we borrowed for the featured image on this story).
What do you do for a living?
One of the coolest things about the forums we’re all on is how just about everyone can have the same car, but build it differently. The jobs we work to pay the bills and keep our automotive projects going are even more diverse than our builds. Here’s what some of the founding members of Gearheads-United do for a living.
What were the must-read threads you came across this week? We want to see them!
