I had a few things on my plate this past Weekend. The Subaru Spring Fling, errands at a buddies house in the boonies North of Pickering, Steve’s shop to mount some wheels/tires, the Eurotouch Tuning BBQ and the Krispy Kreme meet. Unforturnatly I haven’t been able to find my camera charger and the low battery indicator meant I had to ration all of my photos. Like a dummy, I have 5 photos of my shitbox and zero photos of actual Subarus from the Spring Fling event. I did however grab pics of this sweet EVO 5. It’s the first one I’ve seen locally.
After hastily leaving SpringFling, I made my way to Steve’s shop. And caught up with him about the E46 build for FormulaD Canada. The build is once again gathering steam, as it was in a bit of a lull since he was on the lookout for a motor. The decisions to go with and M52 was a made just recently. The acquisition of a Garrett GT35r has accelerated Steve’s drive to get the ride completed. So much so, he’s decided to unveil it at Fitted on May 23rd. I also caught up with Danny, and his Fitted prep. Parts of the car are getting a new white coat. And he’s working on acquiring a few more parts. He put a lot of work into tidying up engine bay. You guys will be able to have a good look at that at Fitted as well.
The plan was to have a set of O.Z. F-1 plus wheels on this weekend but I decided that I liked the Throwing Star reps more for now. The look just didn’t gel with me. But I look at this in a good way. It’s finally motivated me enough to clean up the car a bit and to put my RSs together. They’ll be on for Eurokacy at the latest. I did like the whole black on black look though.
Sunday was the BBQ at EuroTouch Tuning. I met up with Dan and Manolo for some cars and hot dogs. I was only able to grab a few shots before the camera died for good.
This B6 was tucked away in the back, but it caught my eye with the pretty sweet colour combo.
Manolo’s Benz doesn’t really go anywhere without being seen.
Even though this Civic was parked on the street, Dan and I wanted to take a closer look. Before getting back into a MK3 Jetta, Dan was in the process of modifying an EJ/M coupe. So he knew this front bumper is actually JDM. I just thought it looked cool on Works. Show season is starting to get some steam. See you at the next local event.
