Buzz Kill: Fred Saez’s Ginster Yellow MKIII GTI

Photography & Words by Jordan Unternaher for Canibeat.com

As a photographer and car enthusiast, there isn’t much more that I could have asked for than the opportunity to shoot one of the most iconic MK3 GTIs in the VW Scene. Probably always remembered as the “Killer BFI” car this insanely fresh Ginster Yellow ’98 2.0T GTI has landed in the hands of Fred Saez, of New Jersey. Since purchasing the car Fred has made some changes to make the car his own, but a lot of the same parts that Black Forest Industries installed are still equipped to this day. Enjoy guys!
