Customer Allen H. Graduates his Mk4 Roadster

“I never even changed oil in a car before building it,” wrote Allen in an email to us sharing his 25th Anniversary Mk4 Roadster (#24 or 25) build graduation. Allen is a retried emergency medicine physician, and his family presented him with the Anniversary Mk4 as a gift to him from his family. He set a target completion date of his 75th birthday (missed it by one year, but who’s counting).

Allen’s son, Nathan, always wanted to build a car with him, and the Mk4 soon became a family project with his other son, Nick, and their mom helping with the assembly as well.

Their Roadster is powered by a Gen 3 5.0L Coyote, Tremec 6-speed transmission, and IRS. There is no chrome or stainless steel anywhere. Those pieces were either bronzed or powdercoated black.

Note the red handle on the transmission tunnel. It goes to a “FireBottle” in the trunk.

Congratulations on graduating your Roadster, Allen! We look foward to hearing more stories of your family having fun with the Mk4.
