It's hard to believe this built was over 4 years ago! This was such a rad car. Jones sold this car for a song. Whatever happened to the motor?

This quote from a few pages couldn't be more true. Personal builds at KCW present some cool opportunities.

There are a good amount of KCW crew builds that I wish I had the cash to buy when they were available.

I have sold quite a few cars at screaming deal prices.. cause I NEEDED some cash flow!!!! :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-" :-"

all kidding aside.. this was a sick ass car with lots of potential... but it came to me at the wrong time for me to concentrate on it like I should have.... I learned a few things with that car... One thing... 6" tranny raise is a bit excessive.... so are 10" beams.... but it went straight.. and went fast!!!!! 10.50 at 130 in Phoenix... =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

I would like to see Alp get his race cars going... Alp... maybe send BOTH your cars down here and let us get them dialed in for ya.... Then you can start your own VW race team!!! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> b EH?! =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Yep. That was 2009 so the car was built well over 4 years ago. By my SC math that is like, you know, more than 4.
