VW Golf & Toyota Scion FR-S 86 from our June Catalog Cover

Typically, you see hot rods or muscle cars on the cover of our monthly California Car Cover catalog, but we wanted to feature some of our local customers who are just as passionate about their newer vehicles. Migel Armas, who owns the Scion FR-S, and Bernie Chacon, the owner of the Volkswagen Golf, are very active and well respected in the Southern California import and European car scene. We had some new products we wanted to feature in some cars and couldn't think of better guys to have out to the photo shoot.




 Migel's Scion FR-S 86 was one of the first 86 FR-S models produced. If you are not familiar with the Scion FR-S, it is a very tunable and customizable vehicle that was a huge hit at SEMA this past year. This special edition Scion has already been given a number of custom upgrades by Migel.



 Migel added a carbon fiber rear wing and front lip from Aero Jacket. The vehicle also has upgraded KW suspension components and a Tanabe exhaust system.




 I think our customers will really appreciate what is under the hood. The engine has been equipped with a Vortech Supercharger. You can read more about the supercharger upgrade on the Vortech website.

The other vehicle on our June California Car Cover catalog cover is the 2010 Volkswagen Golf TDI owned by Bernie Chacon. If you follow our blog or Instagram feed you probably have seen this car a few times. For the past few years, Bernie has coordinated the popular VW Oktoberfest in Big Bear, Ca, a popular VW event on the west coast. Additionally, he helps us promote and host our annual European Car Show, which has become one of the larger events held at California Car Cover.

Bernie operates dub-Nation.com a popular website and social media outlet for Volkswagen enthusiasts around the country.

The Volkswagen Golf looks stock, but features many subtle custom details. Empire Fabrication did all the body modifications which include emblem shaving, tailgate blend and a hood notch. The Golf TDI also rides on custom HRE wheels and Toyo Tires.
