Let's hear a little bit about the driver - What's your name and where are you from?
Hello my name is Frederik Larsen, and I am from Denmark.
What got you into modifying cars and what kept you in it?
My father is a mechanic like me so I've always been living with cars. In my spare time I work on my cars, and he's working on his cars, so when i need an extra hand he helps me, and I help him.
Ok ok ok... Tell us about your ride, what is it?
I have a few, but the one we talk about should be my VW golf mk3 gti 16v, bought it in September 2017, not running 👎
But I Got it running and Got it MOT'd, used it for winter 17/18, took the plates off it and used my other mk3 in the summer time. When it began to be winter again I got plates on it again and have been driving it since September 18, to now, it took a lot of work getting her ready for the summer, but it turned out great.
But now I'm building a mk2 this winter.
