This story would start in the most common way, as to how you found out about a particular build: I had seen it on Instagram. Found in a picture parked next to Sam Wookey’s MK1 Polo. I didn’t manage to track Corbyn Dickason down till Low Collective, unfortunately it began to rain at that show so we caught up with him again at Players 9. So let’s talk to Corbyn to find out more about his simply breathtaking MK1 restoration project.
Now how do I sum this event up in under 1000 words? No, this isn’t a school assignment, but Players 9 felt like an educational show! And how do I find a way to begin this one?
As show season draws to a close in the UK, we think we’ve seen all our little Island has to offer for show cars. But of course not everyone wants to drive all over the country every weekend, so for me this was a relief being at a local show. It’s a fun and eye opening season for many, and as some cars didn’t make it to this show because they’re already being tucked up for winter. What I can say is, what a show Low Collective turned out to be!
So for our American audience this will take a bit of an explanation. Meet something that you guys wish you had on your side of the pond. The Polo 9N3 GTI, a smaller and lighter little brother to the Golf GTI. Along with that, it’s just as much of a perfect car to drive.
For many of us, there’s just something about nu-wave metal. Whether it’s the modern styling, unexplored territory or just the chance to fit a big set of wheels and bags. It’s an awesome opportunity to get the chance at being unique, but its also trend setting when it comes to being the first to modify a new car. And as Joe (@rampling) found out, that can be quite fun yet a headache of a process.
