Jerovan’s sleepy eyed gti has the proper balance of function to match the style.
During my visit to the ever-welcoming city of Fayetteville, Jerovan and I drove through the city trying to find something interesting to do for a few days while I was in town. The one of the first things that I started to notice (among many others) after only a few hours in town, now keep in mind I live in the great northwest where at every turn of a corner you see something that has been modified, but when I was out there visiting it was not the same case, in fact the better part of the week that I was there I believe we saw only a hand full of cars done right.
This is where Jerovan’s gti comes into play, now Jerovan hasn’t always lived down south, his move was due to the military, never the less he is from the Tacoma area and as you can see still very in tune with the northwest flavor.
Now Jerovan’s Mk4 wasn’t his first VW while growing up he drove a 91’ Mk2 Golf which was always a fun hood ride, however Jerovan wanted to go a different route, with clean OEM + style and some nice simple performance upgrades. First was to gut the “extra emissions stuff” and to remove some of the regulators, then to add a few extras including full 42 draft design exhaust and a K04 turbo (upgraded from the K03) as well as some Koni coils (of which has been removed since the photos were taken and full air lift bag setup has been installed complete with Auto Pilot digital management)
After finishing his first stint of active duty in the Air Force he returned to Washington for a year or so to hang out with old friends and be closer to family. But it wasn’t too long before he decided to move back out to North Carolina to his girl friend Sarah. However while in Washington there were a few additions added to his car that wouldn’t have been otherwise conceived first of which was the sleepy booser hood, fabed up by Unorthodox Customs, and is quite subtle and bringing it back to the very OEM+ look. The only other major addition was the, now discontinued, very wide and always controversial Brock B1’s with a modest 8.5in in the front, and an outrageous 10 inches in the rear with only a mere rolling of the fenders and no pull.
At this point, I will let the photos do the talking, feel free to leave comments and be sure to check back for more updates on this car in the spring and many more profiles coming soon!
