For all the time we spend on wheels and stance and euro lights and all the fine details that make a car look good, one of the most dominant visual aspects of a car is its color.

This is my latest project, which is to build a brand new vehicle from scratch. I sourced the new VW Caddy bodyshell in Wolfsburg, Germany, where I travelled to collect it in person. The project will be documented through a series of editorial updates via VWVortex.com. This is the first installment, all photographs are my own. The first article published can be seen here: http://www.vwvortex.com/features/project-cars/project-caddy-van-usa/project-caddy-van-usa-introduction/

    I’ve always loved the Tour de France, and then the Vuelta and Giro, and finally got a kickass first bike as a kickass birthday present a few years ago (thanks Laura!). Now I’m racing throughout the summer and manage a local racing team (www.sunnybrookracing.com).

My 1993 Volkswagen Fox with a 16v engine. Running Jenvey direct-to-head Throttle Bodies (no intake manifold), with Megasquirt for fuel engine and spark control, with a Audi V8 exhaust manifold. Handbuilt coilovers, usually on Borbet T 14×8″ wheels. Brazilian market front and rear bumpers, along with H4 headlights and smoked taillights.
