Meet Jeremy Kravitz. Owner and operator of Phantom Powdercoating. One of Dallas's up and coming.

Meet Jeremy, a retired Army veteran that served in Iraq with a love for all things fast. One example being his MK7 GTI. Sponsored by COBB, this thing is loaded out with an upgraded turbo, full bolt-ons, and a track oriented air ride setup with many components transformed by in house powder coating. After turning wrenches for years at Chrysler, Volkswagen, and AWD Tuning Jeremy decided to take matters into his own hands. 

Enter Phantom Powdercoating, the concept turned reality that put him in the place to do what he loves every day. Custom metal fab and transforming anything from wheels to a hood strut with whatever wacky color you can imagine is right up this man's alley. From our personal experience with Jeremy and Phantom Powdercoating, the time put into building relationships with his clients and the quality that comes out of his shop is what sets him above the competition. Don't just take our word for it though. Check out the Facebook link below to see for yourself.

Joakim Karlsson’s BMW-powered 1973 Beetle

Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something that you don't see every day. A BMW-powered front-engined 1973 VW Beetle.

The spot where the car’s original air-cooled flat-four used to sit actually is more than ample enough to accommodate a variety of other interesting boxer motors, but Joakim wanted to go for a more balanced set up. One that would allow the car to be steered on the throttle and be far more docile when being thrown around.  So he decided to borrow a BMW M50B25 and then somehow managed to kill two birds with one stone. Supplying power as well as taking care of the weight balance by dropping the motor into the front.

Volkswagen R Brand Prepares To Take On BMW M And Mercedes AMG

On June 1st, 2017 former Ford motorsports boss Jost Capito took over the Volkswagen R division.

The R division has been responsible for several Volkswagen R models. Including the VR6–powered Golf R32, the Passat R36 with an even more powerful VR6, and the V-10 TDI–powered Touareg R50. But nothing new has come from the division in quite some time. That's about to change.

Ben's 1957 Splitscreen Bus

After realizing that he is far too busy to get down to the local pub as often as he'd liked to, Ben decided he wanted to create his own bar.

Ever since this mobile pub was spotted by a fellow enthusiast at a VW car show, Ben's invention has gone viral and been shared millions of times on social media. We can't help but smile at this awesome creation. This 1957 Splitscreen, which Ben bought in July 2014 for £12 000 (or about $15,500 USD) from a guy who imported it from Canada, can also be rented out for weddings and other special events. 

Sherwin's Mk7 Golf R

Sherwin's Mk7 Golf R

We aren't sure if this is a track car, a show car... or both. Then again we really don't care because this Mk7 R is amazing regardless.

If anyone has truly gone all out on their dub, it's Sherwin. His Mk7 R is a real thing of beauty and anything but a modest build. We were afraid to ask how much he has put into this thing, but it has to at least be what he paid for the car to begin with. After seeing this Mk7 R in person, we quickly realized that he is running out of things to mod. He has done just about everything you can to this car. We are truly looking forward to finally seeing it in action very soon.
