VAGKraft 2014. Every year I go to take photos. I end up taking way more photos of non VAG cars than the name would suggest. Luckily, Geoff will be able to cover the rest.
I can’t pass up a photo with a Quattro, even if its stock.
When Porsche and Audi, get into bed together. One of the best wagons of all time. the RS2.
Nothing gets me giddy like a vintage Porsche. The sights and sounds of aircooled perfection. I heard this 930 Turbo from 3-4 rows over and had to have a closer look. The 964/930 bubble is quickly expanding, prices are really inflated, hopefully I’ll be there ready in a few years to catch one once that bubble bursts.
I love the turbo arches, but the standard narrow body tickles my fancy too. Dymer’s 911 is still my favourite local P Car. It comes down to the narrow body, RS IROC (I think) bumper, t-tray wing, and dialled in stance. I can’t see anything apart from paint, that I would want to change. It really is the car I want.
There’s more to like when its bagged. Carm’s E30, which won the BMW category.
The German Miata.
The Transporter. Alpinas are the go to wheels for the E38.
Back to Stuttgart. Mercs are just that slightly bit more luxury oriented than BMW. Probably why I don’t like them as much. If only they offered more manual options in the late 80s, early 90s. But for bombing down the autobahn, I’d choose no other.
Manolo’s 3rd place 450SEL. They look MONEY on the Schmidts. One more pic below.
If I sold drugs in the 80’s, this would be my car. W126 with a full Keonig kit.
VAGKraft usually has a handful of Japanese cars. That wasn’t the case this year. I did find this Civic in the lot. More coverage soon.
CSCS, show and shine, time attack and drifting. There are no other events locally that combine these three things. As a person who’s attention span is very very limited ,the multiple aspects to the show are welcome. It’s hard not to be a fan of time attack and drifting when they are witnessed in person. Even if the cars and brands aren’t up to your fanboy code. I’m not exactly a fan of Hondas but I can watch them thrash around the track for hours.
I rolled to the show with Adrian. The lack of VWs was obvious. I still don’t understand why the VW crowd does not show up. Even the biggest of VW, rear beam fan boys, Adrian had a good time. The main reason we went was to see Steve skid in the Scraped Crusaders X Swang Bang Money Gang E30. I don’t want to stroke his ego, but for a guy that’s only been drifting on the track for less than a year, he’s doing incredibly well.
As a Subie fanboy, Riley’s Impreza ticks all the right boxes. RWD and 500hp? Yes, please.
Dylan Sharpe was killing it all day. Not surprised he was able to win. More impressive, is that he drove it home afterwards.
Kitted S13s, make me rethink me car choice constantly.
Jover’s AE before punting Steve’s car. Though, the damage to the Corolla was minimal.
Innovative Tuning had my two favourite cars of the day. Their LS3 swapped E46 M3 drift car. Purists aside, this thing is awesome.
Their Impreza time attack car was my other favourite. At 20 years old. this GC shouldn’t be as competitive as it is. Watching it slide and power its way sideways out of corners made my day.
As an amateur photographer the intricacies of camera settings still confuse me. So, the photos are limited to mostly the pit lane variety. That does allow me to get way closer to the machinery, so I’ll have to view it as a plus. Especially regarding the time attack cars. I prefer to shoot a closer view of the aero bits, allowing me to watch the racing action without bothering with photos.
Porsche 944, which the track announcer confused for a 928.
Mazda’s version of the 944, the FC….bro.
It must feel awesome when your 150hp, 1500lbs fwd Suzuki Swift is able to overtake a McLaren MP4.
I was only able to grab a few photos of the show and shine cars. A lot of the cars were too Dark Knights (old Toronto rice scene car show) for me. While I appreciate craftsmanship. I don’t appreciate the terrible taste that goes with some of them. I don’t have to like your car because you spent money on body work. Ugly is ugly.
The complete opposite of ugly is this Z.
Mike’s crazy eyed FC. Mismatched wheels never looked so good.
Veilside? Brings back memories of videos I used to download off Scour/Kazaa/Limewire. The season finale it scheduled for September 21. Unfortunately, I’ll have to miss it as we’re driving to H20i.
86 day, August 6th. Its the first time I’ve heard of it. As soon as I found out Cyrious Garageworks was holding festivities, I was there along with Dave. We probably should have shown up a bit early to take photos. It was really dark within an hour. Also I think i took more pics of non AE86s than 86s.
I can’t wait till I put my coilovers on. I haven’t been able to comfortable park my car within the cool cars for months. I parked in the adjacent lot with this guy.
I had no idea the GTA had this many clean 86s. I was fully expecting rusted rockers, bent quarters and flimsy bumpers. Instead, there were 10-15 of the cleanest Corollas I’ve ever seen.
Got my first look at Aiden’s new wheel setup. Those Luxaru Abstracts are damn nice.
Big body sedans with RWD and a turbo. This Chaser fits the bill for my ideal daily.
Dan’s Lexus, looking good as always.
It may not be in the greatest condition, but I’m glad this Celica is still on the road.
I haven’t seen a prettier burnout in quite some time.
This was a last minute meet I heard about through Instagram. I checked the forecast to see if there would be rain, clears skies ahead they said. So I made my way down to Mississauga, to meet Dave from Stanceiseverything.com. Unfortuntely, it started to rain within 20 minutes of my arrival. Back to Brampton I went. I was only able to grab a few shots.
Chris’ Rocket Bunny Scion is definitely one of my favourite Tra Kyoto builds. The charcoal silver and black wheels work very wheel together.
Navin’s Rocket Bunny FD. Whats not to like about an RX-7? I’m not sure any other car has aged as well is the FD.
Mathew’s S14. Cleanest S chassis around. While I love S chassis that live the drift slut life a clean S is so damn refreshing.
