I met Ryan a couple weeks ago at a local car show and after talking for a bit I found out he was form VA beach; memories of huge potholes and terrible driving conditions suddenly came back to me from when I drove down for the first Wrong Fitment Crew meet on the Mid-Atlantic (North-East) region.
I didn’t know what he drove at this point, so we decided to walk back to the cars and it turned out we parked next to each other! Although I had noticed the car from afar when I pulled in, I didn’t realize how clean the car was until I came back for a more detailed look.
If it wasn’t too obvious from that picture, Ryan owns one of the new model VW Jettas on some fresh gold Rotiforms that compliment it’s color really nicely.
From what I noticed, Ryan has worked hard to keep his ride looking very clean, maintaining a very simple motto but yet looking very clean.
I sked ryan why he chose to go with air over staying with the traditional static suspension we all love, and there is a simple reason behind that with which I totally agree with:
“If you knew the roads in the Hampton roads area this question would answer itself. My city alone has bad roads, but I like to travel and you never know what the pavement will be like in other cities. Since I planned on traveling to alot of shows Air just seemed the right choice”
I also asked him why he picked this car, and not something else…?
“Well honestly my journey began with the choice of 3 cars, 2.0t Genesis, Ap1 s2000 and Volkswagen Jetta. I previously owned a mk III jetta so I guess I started my shopping a little biased. But I’m more than happy with the way Cloud VI came out, I couldn’t see myself with a different car”
