What is VeHype, and who am I?

Let me start with introducing myself, my name is Spencer Bailey, and I’m a 19 year old college student living in Northern Colorado. I’ve loved cars my entire life, and have been told stories of myself as a child, how I would always have my pockets and hands full of hotwheels, and they would surround me as I slept. I started to really get into car when I was around 10, and one of my fathers co-workers started to give me his old hemmings magazines. I go through and read every classified ad, looking up the cars I hadn’t heard of before. As time went on my passion grew deeper and stronger, to the point where everyone around me think its an obsession. They just don’t understand.

I’m creating this website because there aren’t many resources on the internet to find cars that car enthusiasts want. Whether its a racecar, classic, project, or just something unique, we want to host it here. I’m already addicted to searching classified ads, eBay, and other sources just to find cool cars and good deals that I know I can’t afford, so I’ll expose them to as wide of an audience as I can get.

Some people may want to know what cars I’ve owned or currently own, so heres the list:

  1. 2006 Silverado-This was a good truck but didn’t really suit me. Never did any modification on it besides obligatory wheels/tires
  2. 2003 Subaru Legacy- This little sedan was the first car I fell in love with. I didn’t care that is had a gutless NA 2.5 liter, or that it had a terribly slushy 4EAT automatic transmission, because I could beat the crap out of it and it didn’t care. Never had anything break on it, and I never bothered to modify it at all because I knew i wouldn’t be keeping it forever.
  3. 1973 Volkswagen Beetle- I got this car as a project while I still owned the legacy. When I purchased it I had no experience working on cars, and by the end I could do just about anything you wanted me to. it ended up being way to rusty for me to want to keep, and I ended up scrapping it, but keeping the engine and other parts for future projects.
  4. 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX Wagon- My first car that could perform… When I picked it up about 8 months ago, it was bone stock besides a stereo system, and had only 52k on the odometer. I immediately had to modify it, so I lowered it on some BC Racing coilovers, and mounted 18×8 Volk Racing Trophy F-zero wheels with Dunlop Sport Maxx tires on them to keep it sticky. I also installed a TurboXS downpipe and midpipe, and a Prodrive Axleback exhaust. I then used a Cobb Accessport to “tune” it. Other modifications I’ve done are bigger front brakes, and a sedan front end swap to make it look a little more aggressive. I have loved every moment of owning this car so far, and it’s treated me really well. I’ve put over 20,000 miles on it since I got it 8 months ago, and can’t wait to keep putting on more.
  5. 1970 Volkswagen Beetle- I purchased this to be a project as well, after I got my WRX. When I got it, it only had 54,000 original miles, but didn’t look like it. It had an engine fire about 30 years ago that put it out of commission, as has been sitting since. It has no cancerous rot though, and as runs well after I put my engine from my ’73 in it. The plan is to bag it, then build a bigger turbo motor with EFI.

These are the only cars that I’ve owned so far, and I hope to own many many more. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to email me.

 

Thanks!

Spencer
