True North “Show”Room

I was initially excited to go to the BMW/Mercedes/Audi TrueNorth event.  There were tons of people sharing my views on Facebook leading up to the event.  After arriving at the “show”  I thought I took a wrong turn somewhere and wound up at a showroom or service lot.  Maybe its the initial purchase price, or the […]


Cars and Coffee Closer

As show season wound down, I needed one last Cars and Coffee fix.  After initially cancelling all Setptember C&C events, the Engineered Automotive decided to host one last show in October. I obviously couldn’t miss it.  It was the last opportunity to bring out the E34, see a few friends before winter hibernation and check out […]


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 […]


86 Day 2015 at Cyrious Garage

August, 6th,  86 Day in the car community.  The AE86 authority in Mississauga is definitely Cyrious Garage.  Having campaigned their coupe for numerous years in DMCC and FD Pro2.  Every year they open up their shop on this day for a small pop up meet.  And pretty much every 86 in the GTA showed up. […]


The Scraped Crusaders’ B34TER

There are certain things in life that just go together.  Things that go together so often, they’ve become ubiquitous. The case for BBS and BMW can be made but the results rarely disappoint.  So what if the combination has been done before.  That does not and should not change the verdict of the results.  New […]


Majestics – Luxurious BBQ Pt.2

Devil in a blue dress. I now believe in love at first sight.  When this Riviera pulled up to the BBQ I instantly swooned.  The 70’s were responsible for so many big luxury barges.  Occasionally they turn out extraordinarily elegant.  This Buick Riviera with immaculate deep blue paint and hideaway front lights was hands down my favorite […]


Majestics – Luxurious BBQ Pt.1

The Majestic Luxurious BBQ is now officially my favourite annual BBQ/car meet.   It gathers all of the local lowriders from the GTA along with a few from below the border. I’ve always loved lowriders from a far.  We see them in youtube videos, magazines, TV shows and movies.  Jay Leno produced a great video recently, […]


Cars and Coffee July

Cars and Coffee July is in the books.  As per usual I was able to see a car that I normally would not see.  The Lancia Integrale Evo, below looked amazing in red.   By todays standards the 220hp isn’t much but 25 years ago it took hatchbacks to another level. This Chevrolet Acadian is […]
