MKIV

015

Finding car enthusiasts  in this particular of New York is few and far between, and locating cars that are clean and thought out is almost non existent.   M. Biagini one of our good friends, is not brand loyal to say the least.  Jumping from Acura, BMW, Infiniti to this current MKIV Volkswagen.  What you see here today has come along way from what it was.  This car was pretty much rebuilt in less than six months. Originally taking storage in a body shop storage lot,  Biagini saw this as an opportunity to bring it back to its former glory.

I remember that day Biagini called me and asked my opinion of this car. Told him that I  remember the original owner having it and seeing it on a daily basis and if purchased, it would be a good platform to start off with.

This was pretty much the first rebuild of a car that Biagini has done. He had to source a new engine and bought every single OEM interior piece new.  Patience and time where critical especially when dealing with everyday life issues.

Being that this is his first VW, no electrical gremlins have make their way into this car just yet.  His future plans are maybe to sell it  and  get the Nissan 350Z he has always dreamed about.

EVENT COVERAGE: VW & Audi Water Fest 17

It always turns out that the night before a big car meet/event the Keep It Flush staff always finds their way out to the bars or clubs. With the best intentions of it being an early sober night, it usually never is the case.  The next morning usually consists of the standard issue wake up call or text in which we try to figure out who’s driving and a place to meet up.  A lot of games are typically played at this point at which we tell each other that we are ready to go but in reality are half asleep in bed taking two aspirins. To make matters worse if you’re shot from the night before, the meet/event is usually a hot humid day in which you have to endure running on only a few hours sleep.

Water Fest 17 was no exception but of course when you get to the intended destination, you run on adrenaline and excitement of the event.  Even with a late start to the day, we got to capture images of the nicest VW and Audi’s in the country.  With some enthusiasts coming as far as Canada and California this two-day event never fails to please.  Some might think KIF only caters to the likes of Japanese autos but we like any auto scene that has cars done right.
