... And A Case Of Beer

Our good friend Sid shot this sick MKV Rabbit before the most recent ISO meet. He was also nice enough to conduct a very thorough interview and let us get our hands on it. ENJOY!

Introduce Yourself:
My name is Jayson Pearce, I'm 25 years old and I am employed by the United States Air Force at Shaw AFB, SC. I like long walks on the beach, quiet nights in and.....wait....too much?

How long have you owned this car?
I bought this car in October of 2006 (it is a 2007 model)

Is there a unique story about behind your car?
After I bought the car in October, It sat from July 2007 until December 2009 and then seven MORE months out of this year. But whenever I come back I always have new parts/wheels to put on to make it up to her.

Did you consider a different car instead of this one?
 When I was looking around, the only other car I was considering was a Honda Fit. That was until I decided to check out my local VW dealer.....

What was your original objective with your car and has that objective changed?
I thought I owned a race car. H&R cup kit, huge sway bars, I was Mario Andretti in a 5 cylinder, automatic Rabbit haha.

What style would you say best describes your car?
I would say my car doesn't really fit into a category. I mean, It's kinda euro simply because of the car, suspension and wheels, but then you have the hardwood flooring, Bride racing seats and Nardi steering wheel. It's just my style I suppose.

Who assisted in the planning/building/modding of your car?
Brandon Baden helped me out a lot when it came to building/modding of the car, but the planning stages were all mine and consisted of: "you know what would be awesome?"

 Who or what inspired the direction you took with the styling and modifications of your car?
Jake@WFSU got me started with my first set of wheels, after that it was just a stream of my conscience.

If money were no object, what would you do to your car?
Built 5 cylinder, big turbo, manual tranny swap with straight cut gears. That's it.

If your car had a motto, what would it be?
All it takes is time and a case of beer.

If you had to name your car, what would his/her name be?
Her name is Jessica. Jessica Rabbit

On a scale of 1 to 10, how satisfied are you with the outcome of this project?
I'd say about a 7.5....but this isn't an outcome per say, it's just another stage.

What is your final goal with this car?
 Simply to have fun with it. Something I hope to not lose sight of because, from what I've seen, it is too easy to get caught up and take this way too serious.
