Let's hear a little bit about the driver - What's your name and where are you from?


Hello there! i’m ralph & i’m originally from Cape May NJ, but i’ve been living in Philly for about 7 years now.

What got you into modifying cars and what kept you in it?

i was obsessed with toy cars when i was a young lil baby boy but i actually got into cars from seeing some bmx friends with lowered mk3s & mk2s. i just fell in love with the look.

i ended up finally getting a mk3 and really loving the vw culture. i then got into 90s japanese stuff and stance cars so i felt like tossing away the traditional mk3 cookie cutter build and go my own different way taking influence from many things <3

What are some things you've done to your car that others might not notice?
