Before you begin to incessantly rub the bristles on your chin or tilt your head in dog-like curiosity, this car is indeed a '00 Golf. So don't yell at the friend who sold you the bag of glaucoma medicine and accuse him of giving you imitation herbs -- your eyes aren't fooling you. Rather, blame the imaginative minds of Freedom Design from Electrodyne for making your life even more confusing.

As Freedom Design's flagship project car, this Mk4 Golf is complete with the latest tuning products available and, clearly, beyond what's available. The most prominent add-on is undoubtedly the Jetta front-end conversion, helping the Golf break out of its natural mold and making you more lost than ever. It would only be fitting for a company named "Freedom Design" to make a car laden with innovative style.

Hurry and pick up the February 2005 issue of Eurotuner Magazine for the complete story, and a lot more photos.

Superstreet: If there’s one thing you guys hate with all of your soul, it’s the idea of OEM vehicle manufacturers teaming up with one another on new vehicle offerings, the way that GM and Honda/Acura have agreed upon.

Unlike most builds that are a product of some grand scheme of daydreaming and sometimes documenting plans for picking up a specific car and applying a headful of parts and changes to it, this turbocharged 1995 Mazda Miata is the exact opposite. Its owners and builders, brothers Alex and David Wong, had no intentions of
