Majestics 2014 BBQ

maj17

I have never been to a Lowrider event.  I’ve seen a few at Kennedy Commons, but that was about it.  I’ve always loved them from a far.  Dr.Dre, Snoop and Xzibit adding to the allure. The great thing about lowriders, every one seems to love them.  Stance, muscle, import, euro, jdm etc, all of these scenes divide public interest.  While Lowriders are seemingly ogled by all.   I’m glad Dave from Stanceiseverything.com posted up the show info a few days ago.  It was a great way to spend the Saturday.

The Impala is the quintessential Lowrider.  Chilango (above) and I think the 2 below define the scene.

While I love the Impalas,  I was really drawn to the Cadillacs.  The HUGE body with very boxy design cues, abide with my love for land yachts.

Face down, ass up.

Land yacht defined.

Another staple is the classic G-body.  This includes, Regals, Monte Carlos, and Cutlesses.  The above Cutless broke a chain.  Off course, jacking up a corner is as easily as hittin a switch.

I should have stayed a bit longer.  This Lincoln obliterated it’s grill in the hoping competition. Link.

In the lowrider world, crowds flock to the open trunk, rather than the open hood.

The above Eighty-8, is for sale on the Toronto Kijiji page, if anyone is interested.


Its safe to say I’ve been on a Lowrider binge since going to this event.  Including numerous Kijiji (craigslist) searches and many many youtube videos.

Eurokracy 2014 via Geoff

After a long delay.  We’ve been able to catch up on some Eurokracy photos we failed to post. These pics, come courtesy of Geoff.

Polish on black.  We planned on having Bronson’s E34 here as well but he was too busy ripping up and down the strip.  So we stuck with Scott’s M135i and Chris’ Mk5.

@mandi_mkvi ‘s MkIV.    I should make more of an effort to remember people by their actual names, than their Instagram tags.  #firstworldproblems

Yet again, Stance Culture was holding it down with the best booth of the event.  Nice clean and black, with black casting couches.  ;)

Manolo = bags. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him in a car without bags.  I remind myself of this car whenever I complain about gas.  Automotic, 4.5L v8, and nearly 5000lbs.

As much as I like white and clack cars.  I feel red with gold wheels is the best combo.

Love the fender work.  Its really wide yet its still subtle.

The guys in the LowLevel crew are insane.  That S2K on Quebec roads should not be able to mix.  Yet they find a way, even to travel to Toronto for FITTED.

I have a long distance love hate relationship with Corrados.  Such an awesome looking are,  yet so much wasted as it lacks RWD or AWD.  Its a coulda woulda shoulda situation.

VIP x USDM X Euro.  The Passat CC is a car we need to see more often.
