RIP Gillysteins monster!



Well it's been a sad few months. The car that gave me the vr6 bug has finally gone to the scrapyard in the sky. My boy Gilly's awesome vr vento was badass, it sounded like a beast and went like a train until the fateful day when it had a bit of a CQB with a mk3 20vt. Bang!! Front end destroyed. Game over. Go home. The end. But Gilly is a man of means, a horse of a man and he wouldn't be defeated. So, the chassis legs were straightened using only the finest ghetto engineering, a golf front end was sorted, new inpro angels and a carbon bonnet added to make her look like a car again. Then the interior was stripped out, amazing how much shit mk3s carry in weight, did you know they have small factory sandbags in places to weight em? Anyhow, the 'gento' was born, for a bit, until he nearly went deaf driving it (no sound deadening you see) so he got bored and the chop up began. Now not being a pikey or owt but i like a bargain, so I decided to have away with the tyres, fk coilovers and full stainless de-cat system for my golf, only to help a pal out of course (zorst build day coming soon), .

Now she's gone, but in her memory I've added a set of phone pics (as supplied by Chris) to show her final moments. You may notice some examples of Ben and my good self trying to be Chip Foose with some fancy body mods, the flames look particularly....ghetto, amazing what you can do with some 5 year old tins of primer and other random stuff you can apply with a brush. Gilly is particularly deadly with any kind of power tool, hence why no-one is anywhere near him in the pics.

Check the 'PICS', so long baby, you were awesome. Rest in many rough cut pieces.

  1. BOOOHOOOOOO. It's finally gone (and the git never even let me drive it!). That car of Gillys was one awesome beast. A real child killer. Never mind I'm sure sooner or later he'll sort something out and get another nut job motor. Rumors where he was lookin at something with a 2.8ltrs and a charger. Hmmmm sounds interesting.

  2. Sad to hear that the car is gone now. It sounds like it was a killer ride. Any chance there are other parts left over? Like the bumpers? :) Authentic Vento parts are hard to find in the States.
