So from this point on on were gonna try and do an article each month highlighting someone from the site who has been nominated either for some sort of uniqueness of their car, something they did that was positive for the car scene, or that they are simply just great person and deserve a little bit honor.
So for me an easy pick was Ted Wambach; more commonly known as Teddy or TeamZleep on EG. Teddy is easily one of my better friends on EurGhetto, which is funny because the amount of times we have hung out in person could probably be counted on two hands. I met Teddy a few years ago through PSI, and like everyone PSI has personally introduced me to, Teddy is a top notch person.
A lot of non-car scene people don’t really understand how you can be such good friends with someone you only talk to on the internet and facebook. But for me its been easy. Teddy is easily one of the handful of people i will go out of my way to make sure i see at events like SoWo.
Speaking of sowo, last year i picked up a 5 speed transmission for Ted from Underground VW in tampa because he had recently blown his last one. Ted had turbo’d his mk5 rabbit 2.5L, it was stupid fast; so we drove it up to SoWo so he could get the rabbit back on the road. Ted seems to be known on some sties for having very unique mk5’s.
If you’ve been living under a rock, or just refuse to go on any mk5 site or thread, then you might not know that Teds .:R also caused a rukus, but not in the got fast make a lot of noise way. Many an .:R owner got pissed over fact that he traded away the .:R bodykit. But in my opinion, it was a great move. I love how the mk5 rabbit front looks.
So… i told Ted that i was writting the article about him, and that i wanted to get some pics taken of his car, not big deal. But then a week later he finished his new wheels, which look WAY WAY better. So go check his facebook/instagram and check it out, its proof that you dont need to spend 10 grand on wheels/air/other shit to have a clean looking car. If you dont know Ted i suggest you take some time to really get to know him, he’ll be at SoWo, buy him a beer and chat it up. He’s one of the best people i know on EG, he’s a loving father, and he’s even served our country.
P.S. - Teddy, if i get drunk at SoWo dont let me put fireworks in anyone pockets….
