Spread pancreatic cancer awareness in and around the car community! Sponsored by The Purple Iris Foundation and Cancer Treatment Centers Of America.
Our idea is simple... create a show quality car (done in a purple motif, of course), travel around the country, promote awareness, and reach a whole new generation of people through the Euro, import, and domestic car community! Here is what will make us different from every other trailer queen car making its rounds to shows... our car will be DRIVEN to each event, rather than trailered! Are we crazy? maaaayyybe ;-)
ABOUT THE CAR:
Our current project is a WIDE and LIFTED 1997 VW Jetta TREK 2.0 with 190xxx miles on it... BUT, don't let the mileage scare you! This old girl is still running like a champ and going strong! Its current list of modifications include the following:
-Full B3 VR6 Passat wagon suspension (struts/shocks and springs)
-Full performance CUSTOM exhaust (headers, catless downpipe, Thrush glass pack, Flowmaster 40 series muffler, etc)
-custom 2” extended hubs, matched up with 215/75r14 tires (about 5 inches wider all the way around)
-custom cold air intake setup
Throughout the course of this project, we will be posting picture and video updates showing out progress, so make sure to "follow" us to keep up to date on all the latest news!
