Different Strokes

After NI BMW’s charity show Gethin asked me to take a few pics of our mk3s together. If you seen my latest Instagram post I said about the similarities of the 2 cars but even at first glance they are as different as they are alike.

Both cars are home built, run static on face mounted 17s, have 6 pot lumps banging away in tidied and tucked engine bays and are driven like they should be.

Looking beyond these similarities though there are just as many differences. Gethin’s 6 cylinder is the more modern 24v item with a turbo strapped to it, it was built to be an occasional use car (I’m reluctant to say show car if you see how he drives this) and is a later model car with colour coding and US bumpers.

In contrast to this my car is a converted 12v with a lick of paint, was built to use and abuse as a daily (or as daily as you can get when you’ve a work van) and is an early model with textured bumpers, arches and trims.

There’s a plan hatched to do a proper shoot of a few mk3s in a similar vein to this similar but different theme so if mk3s are your bag no matter what your taste there’ll be something to appeal to you.
