Scraped.Crusaders. at TOPP Drift by Gill

It felt awesome to get the first show/event under belt.  Winter needs to frickin die.  The weather was great enough to warrant only t-shirts. That made the TOPP Drift season opener even better. First and foremost we were there to watch and support Steve and his e30.

From show car to drift slut. I’m sad i won’t see this car on the road anymore, but I’m excited to see it going sideways. Expect more changes for Steve.

Maybe painting it white, wasn’t such a good idea.

Drifting is an expensive and dirty sport.  Luckily with the help of sponsors like Wheel Direct, many grassroots drivers are able to lap all day.

You might have seen Marin’s 240 in this Sylvania commercial.  Though, with more fenders.

More pics from Geoff soon.  He was able to grab more sideways shots.

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.

Scraped.Crusaders. Favourite Ride of 2013

Choice

Our crew always has a favourite car of the year.  We never post about it.   We just always have one car we talk about.  And it’s always from H2Oi.  Previous years include Jay’s Legacy Wagon, LooneyLow’s Civic, that boosted Trailblazer (everyone who was there, knows the one).  Inevitably there would be more this year. So we decided as a group to make an award for the owner. However, some suggested that we lean towards a VAG car.  We tried to oblige.  Someone in a VW had to step up. About the award….2 years ago, I made the 14 hour drive back home from OCMD without a hitch. Somehow I did not fall asleep.  All was well, the shitbox made it there and back..  Unfortunately on the 1 hour commute home from work the next day, this dumbass fell asleep (eastbound on Lakeshore, around Jameson for the curious locals), and curbed my RS’s.  CURBED them.  It was non salvageable, how it continued to hold air is beyond me.  2 years later, the beebs were gone, the lip was still around.  Why not get rid of it in style?  Few minutes on Solidworks, few more on a laser cutter and we had our award. Painting and assembly took longer than anticipated, but the final product we can be proud of.

It took us a few days to commit to a winner.  Luckily for us and some VW fanboys, Nick Weir stepped up.  It’s definitely a Volkswagen, yet it ruffles the feathers of the purists.  I honestly don’t understand why all car people can’t get along. We like stance, we like drifting, we like muscle cars, we like offroad trucks, we like supercars, we like the Euro scene, we like the JDM scene. Why belittle eachother?  Honda and VW fans seem to fit this bill the most. This Caddy has to satisfy everyone.  Its a bagged Volkswagen car/truck with a Honda K swap and Work wheels.  The colour combination of cream exterior and dark grey wheel centres really pull the project together.  I would not have guessed that Meisters would work this well on a Caddy. Love the builds that are different.  Much better than a set of RSs.

The project isn’t complete for Nick.  He’s still got lots of plans for this car during the winter.

Oktoberfest 2013 by Gill

This is usually the FINAL event on the Scraped.Crusaders calendar. We start taking wheels off, raising coils and/or putting our cars away entirely right around this time.  It was a small BBQ event.  Most likely the last time I’ll be seeing most of these cars until next spring.  This year it was held at Euroline Performance in Mississauga.

I may be seeing more of E46s in the future ;)

I THINK this EK was on toyos.  He also had awesome Status seats.

ok2

Toronto’s coolest Porsche just got better.  I beleive the seats are new and the RS/RSR? bumpers were added too.  Love it.

ok13

Cool E92, but seriously, if you can afford this, you can probably afford real wheels.

My Week in OCMD.

oc1

This year we decided to stay an entire week at Ocean City.  It was well worth it.  The extra days were awesome as H20i actually felt like a vacation for once.  The house we stayed at sucked though.  I swear my stuffed nose was from mold.  No big deal, most of the time was spent mobbin up and down the strip, even before the crowds showed up on Thursday.  I went through AT LEAST a full tank while on the strip.  500-600kms+ up and down coastal.  Got damn.

By the time the weekend rolled around I had managed to pick up a nail on my front left tire.  It wasn’t leaking air, so I thought its better if I just leave it alone.  Pulling up to the Outkasts meet, it proved otherwise.  The nail popped out.  Quick call to Dan and he was there with a jack.  We did need some spare wood to get the car up though.  With the flat tire in hand we went to a local shop to get it patched. These two beauts were outside.

The Wagon GTG was hands down the most subdued meet of the week.  It was also made up of about 90% wagons which is nice.  Ussually a meet means, 10-15 apt cars then 50 random cars.

Taphouse was bangin all week.  Didn’t matter the time or weather.  It was packed.  Im not even sure whats meets were there.  We just showed up.

Governors Club meet.  It was held on the morning of the actual show.  Tbh, I didn’t even know it was going down, we just stopped at the convention centre because there was a pretty big crowd.

Left overs.  Randoms snaps from the week.

Scraped Crusaders | H2Oi 2013

As seen by Matt.

Enjoyed this year a lot more and didn’t shoot as much, but still got enough to throw together a little video…hope everyone enjoys.

Cheers.

Disclaimer*   Mauncho is drunk as fuck at the beginning of the video.  It was taken 10 seconds after changing his clothes on my rear seats.  Contemplated burning those seats.
