H2Oi 2016: Arrival

I had skipped out on the 2015 festivities.  The traffic and drunk hooliganism from 2014 put me off for a whole year.  Fortunately,  last year was REALLY H2Oi, with constant tropical storm/hurricane conditions.  I didn’t miss much.  Initially, I hadn’t planned on trekking down  for the 2016 event either.  But at the last second I […]

Queensway Cruise Nights

Organisation, civility, and standards.   Three things that lack from every big tuner meet in the GTA.  The younger tuner crowd just can’t seem to hold its composure when they’re in a mob setting.  While they’re marginally organised, they are far from civil.  Burnouts, revving, racing up and down the aisles.  Things you only see […]

Cars and Coffee

Another month another Cars and Coffee, even though I haven’t posted any pics from the others yet.  This was the first C&C I was able to make this year.  And I was able to catch a few cars I haven’t seen before.  Including the LaFerrari, 512BB and the 959. My car obsession as a child was […]

Dip Your Toes or Dive In Head First?

I recently started thinking about the plight of the daily driven drift cars – drivers want to get reckless at the track and shred some tires, but still have to get to work on Monday and pick up groceries on their way home. Those who want to compete and elevate their drift status but need […]

Eurokracy 2016

There are only a few things Quebec does better than the rest of Canada.  Poutine, complaining about NHL trades and car shows.   They’re exceptionally good at all 3.  Eurokracy raises the benchmark every year.  Sergio, Ric and Jesse continually improve the show that IMO is better than the show at H2o or Waterfest or anything […]

Money Gang BBQ

Devo and the Money Gang crew held their first BBQ a few weeks ago.  Excellent people, excellent food not so excellent weather.  All things considered it was a good way to spend a Sunday. Kristoff, Devo and Mike all parked their cars like the cool kids do.  So I parked my poser car with theirs. […]

TwoYotas

“I’ll just grab some quick shots, and edit them as soon as I can.”  Not entirely verbatim but I think that’s what I said while taking these photos.  These are from the FITTED Lakeshore event.  They were put on the back burner for……. some 6-7 months. Toronto has a lot of well represented car niches, […]

Work, Work, Work, Work

New beginnings for a bunch of us.  It may not be warm enough yet but there is no time to wait.  Show and drift season is just around the corner.   Dave is working on a VR swap and selling his diesel motor. Dan is building and parting out way too many VWs to keep […]

CIAS 2016

The internet has ruined the suspense around autoshows world wide.  There is no anticipation outside of Frankfurt, Geneva, Detroit, Paris and Tokyo.  That’s where all of the big name unveilings take place.  All of which are immediately broadcast on social media.  It was much different a 15-20 years ago.  You had to wait until physical print […]
