I first spotted this car at the beginning ofthe year as i met up with some other local friends that i was heading up to the Ultimate Dubs show near Birmingham. This was my first proper VW show that i had ever been to and this car really caught my eye just cruiseing along it had a real presence and purpose about it.
And in a show enviroment well it might as well of been in an art gallery it was looking so fresh.
I knew straight away that before this year was out that me and this stunning VW Golf Rallye G60 would need to meet again i got to know Ben the owner over the summer staying in contact as the car picked up multiple awards where ever it went.
I decided that really end of season would be best as most of the cars come off the road and the prep for the following year begins.
So i spoke to Ben and we got it in the diary half sharpish a few days later its shoot day but it now looked in real jeopardy on route to the location after a stunning day the heavens opened and by the time i got to Bens it was raining fairly hard he got on the phone and gave a couple of people a call and within in a few minutes we had a location undercover sorted result game on im thinking not ideal but il make it work.
We hop in the cars and head up the road and lucky only a few minutes from Bens we pull into this amazing location we drive around and wait for his mate to show up who takes us around to this amazing grain store which also looked partially like a bunker.
This got my imagination all fired up what look could i go for then silence it stopped raining ok now im getting excited as there where a couple of spots i had scouted on the way to the grain store that would rock.
