effects everyone. So we here at 425Dubs want to do something about
you know someone with cancer right now , Do you know someone
who beat cancer? So please donate and receive a ticket for a
chance to win this car.
The 2005 425Dubs.Com Team is committed to producing a
euro-style vehicle to withstand the grueling challenges
encountered in VW show community. Our intent is to raffle off the
show vehicle with the proceeds benefiting American Cancer Society.
The time period is April through August with the winner of the
raffle picked at the 2005 WaterWagens Car Show Seattle Washington.
We will work as a professional team to design and fabricate a
highly competitive show vehicle while providing a great platform
for our sponsors to use in advertising.
We will organize and establish ourselves as a serious and
capable presence within the VW Vortex community. By operating as a
business and conducting ourselves in a professional manner we will
obtain sponsorships while networking and marketing the show
vehicle to businesses and community members alike. We set
precedence for all future build teams and must establish an
executable and functional protocol for the future of car builders
to follow, learn and expand upon.
The 2004 car, a 1983 Volkswagen cabriolet (named
Chubby for Charity), is quite an accomplishment, especially as it
was the first vehicle built by the current team. It features a
European chubby stance due to the 13x8 ATS classics wheels with
H&R Stage II coilovers, constructed from 1976 rabbit and 1983
cabriolet shell, and a Volkswagen carbureted 1600cc engine
attached to modern 5 speed (O2J). Though the engine is restricted,
our design is stylish cruising, not performance. This, coupled
with the European shaved shell, allows a great platform not seen
in many of the competing vehicles. Cabriolet’s
extremely low center of gravity and even weight
distribution provide terrific handling characteristics. The car
also features a complex interior with classic white and black
bucket racing seats. It
also has a competitive, top of the line, custom-built sound
system. However, as is the nature of showing cars, an unforeseen
mechanical problem can force us to not be able to attend every
The 2004-2005 425Dubs.Com Team aims for a stylish euro MKI hot rod. Based upon research
results, and the experience gained during the previous years, we
can achieve this through modest tuning and styling in specific
areas, without compromising cost. It seems the more VW makes new
models of cars, the earliest models seem to get even more popular.
Through further analysis, we aim to please most VW enthusiasts
with our design. Color choices make it difficult to please
everyone, but have decided to prime everything satin black. This
is the new “IN” color. Additionally, the suspension and wheels
dynamically improved style characteristics. More dramatically, the
copper trim works extremely well against the satin black finish.
We will continue to push the limits with modifications as time and
funds allow, and even realize more of its potential for the
American Cancer Society. All other sponsors will be identified by
artwork on the vehicle.
