7th Annual FITTED

FITTED is Toronto’s unofficial car show season opener.  Positioned early enough in the year for most to unveil the work that was completed over the winter months. There were a few builds I was keeping an eye on.  Including Miro’s Camaro.  I’ve seen the unfinished item on a few occasions but the fully finished unit […]

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 […]

Oktoberfest 2015

Oktoberfest in Mississauga is usually the last meet/show of the year before my winter wheels go on.  That was the case this year again.  Its the last hoorah for a bunch of us, and I was glad to say goodbye to a few people and cars until spring.   Including Dave and his Speed3. Being “Oktoberfest”  it was […]

Year In Review 2015

Happy New years!  We’re taking a belated look back at some of our favourite photos and articles from our past year.  Some shows, some builds, some drifting, some classics, some modern.  We did a lot of everything. The progress and development of the MoneyGang Drift Team was substantial.  Steve went from a street car (e30) […]

Scraped Crusaders’ Favourite Ride FITTED 2015

Judging a show usually results in a bunch of sore losers bitching about how they should have placed.  This is exactly why we choose to name our award the Scraped Crusaders Favourite Ride. Favourites are not put through the ringers of a scaled judging system.  We just pick the car that fits our mantra, or […]

FITTED Ontario Place

FITTED Ontario Place was a great show.  The organizers decided a second venue  to compliment their Brampton show.  I thought the location they chose worked out well.  Its a central location is much easier to get to than the Brampton one.   I really need to work on mixing up my photo angles.  I only realized once editing these […]

Money Gang Livery

With the first Canadian formula drift event fast approaching our friend Steve, (@moneygangsteve) is working at graveyard schedule in order to get the car completed for testing. This latest update is a big one in terms of styling, when Steve decided to step into the big leagues he also wanted to make sure the car […]

FITTED 2015 via Gill

There are 3 staples in our year.  Eurokracy, H20i and Fitted.  We’ve been attending FITTED for over 4 years now, going back to the second ever Stretch and Poke event at Lakeshore.  We’ve gone from casual attendees to now being able to bring 2 builds and a booth.  This year we had Danny’s 1.8T swapped […]

Money Gang Steve – Early in the Build

Go big or go home.   In somewhat contrast to our last article, Getting lost in the Build, we take our first look at Stephen Van Sleuwen’s extensive E46 drift build.  The difference with Steve, is that we know he’s well within his capabilities, and he’ll have a complete car for this summer.  If not, […]

Year in Review 2014

We look back at some of our fondest memories of 2014 (in no particular order).  This year has been a bit of a lull for us.  A few of us moved further apart, new jobs, new cars, we just didn’t have our coverage up to par from years past.  We’ve made a few changes to get […]

Scraped.Crusaders. Favourite Ride at FITTED presented by Broadway Static.

Scraped.Crusaders. Favourite Ride at FITTED presented by Broadway Static. We awarded the trophy to a BAGGED Mercedes.  We didn’t think it was a big deal.  We just gave it to our favourite car.   We felt the bagged cars really took over this year’s FITTED show any ways, so this was appropriate.  Broadway Static are perfectly fine with […]

Fitted 2014 via Matt

It has been years since I have been to a Fitted event…in fact, it was Stretch and Poke the last time I went. This year I finally had a free day, and could not wait to check out how much the show has grown. Seeing the incredible quality of cars present, booths, music and food […]

FITTED 2014 via Geoff

As Gill mentioned there are few shows (local especially) that offer such an eclectic mix of high quality cars. We were fortunate enough to have a booth set up in the main building; I will start my coverage with that. More to come later! Euro first (I’m biased) You don’t see too many RS cars […]

FITTED 2014 via Gill

We have two commitments in Canada FITTED and Eurokracy.  These are the two events that we attend no ifs, ands or buts.  Now on its 5th year, the show decided to ramp up the quality over quantity.  I can’t remember another show in Toronto where the competing cars were of this caliber Scraped.Crusaders. Favourite Ride at Fitted […]

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 […]

Scraped.Crusaders. Toyota FT-1

What could have been.  I HATE the front end of the FT-1.  It looks like the Deltawing.  The front nose coming down as much as it does is just wrong.  I don’t think it works well at all.  So I hastily made a version that I think looks much better.  Huge front opening, foregoing the […]
