Megaspeed 2014 by Geoff

As Gill mentioned this event provides something for everyone; and we can certainly appreciate all Megaspeed had to offer, I even entertained the idea of trying to get my car there next year :)

Can’t argue with the rat rod look, it suits certain cars so well.

Some of my favorites from the “tuner” section above.

Many of these old school builds put just about everything else to shame :(

Megaspeed 2014

This was our first visit to a Megaspeed/Performance World show.  I felt it was a good kickoff to show season.  Though the chilly weather outside did nothing to agree. I did see some facebook statuses at the smaller show size this year.  However for new visitors like us, we did not notice such.  What we did notice was the nice mix of hot rods, muscle cars, drag cars, imports and tuner cars.

Love me some Toyota VTEC.

The stance on this 300C was spot on.  And KJohn’s MazdaSpeed3 looked great with the flares and Boso exhaust.

I heard Dreamworks’ Turbo movie was based on this car.

Something tells me @hoowybrow won’t be needing that wax any time soon.  Natural patina at it finest.

If you don’t have time for a natural patina, just paint it on. It was however very well done.

 

Fitted 2014

There are 3 shows we never miss.  Eurokracy, H2Oi and Fitted.   We do everything that was can to help Dave put on a great show.  We will once again have a booth setup with stickers and tees on offering.  Geoff’s A4 will be featured in our booth. We are also hoping to get a few more cars into the indoor venue  The venue will take place at the Brampton Fairgrounds, and it is booth indoors and outdoors. The indoor section will be offered to the chosen and is much bigger than last year.  The registration and selection process are already underway.  LINK.

There were some complaints about the gravel last year.  However with the indoor section being that much larger this year, if your car is good enough to be inside, it probably will be.

VAG EVENT 2013

Winter needs to end asap.  This video of VAG Event 2013 brings us back to the middle of show season.  This is one of the best videos I’ve seen that captures the ambiance and atmosphere of a car show.

CIAS 2014

Early February means one thing for us…. we get to attend press day for the Canadian International Autoshow.   We are privileged to be accredited media for the event.  Roaming the show floor with only press minus the hustle and bustle of the general public is a totally different experience.  We are allowed to take much better photos and get a more in depth and personal experience with most of the cars.  We’re not in the market for a 6 figure luxury sedan anytime soon, but it’s nice pretending for a day.

The Mclaren P1 is hands down THE one car you need to see at the CIAS.  It is the new bedroom poster king.  Taking over from our  F40, 959, Countach, and F1 posters.  Pfaff also brought out their MP4-12C Spa-F and roadster to the super car hall.  While the Heffner Turbo R8, Porsche 964 Turbo and Mercedes SLS Roadster were among their other display cars in their other display.

One would think racecars standing still are a sad sight.  They unfortunately can`t be racing all of the time.  Luckily they look just as fast standing still.  Can`t get enough splitters, diffusers, wings, toe hooks, centre locks.

Road cars and concepts make up most of the show floor.  The last few photos show off an awesome paint finish from Ferrari.  Also great shades of blue from BMW and Subaru.

Tokyo Autosalon by Tomochika Shibata pt.1

We’ve been in contact with Tomochika Shibata for a few years now.  He was one of our first Japanese fans to comment on our site.  It felt awesome having some fans overseas.  He recently had the opportunity to go to this year’s Tokyo Autosalon aka the coolest car show in Japan.  So I asked him to send along a few photos.

326Power’s insane GS.  Static, obviously.

The Roberuta F40 has already made the internet blog rounds.

Of course they’d have an E30 touring.  Love the 90′s feel to this car.

Definaetly one of my favourite Japanese rides this year.  Bee Dragon’s Nissan Y33 Cima.
