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.

Performance VW X Eurokracy X Scraped.Crusaders.

Performance VW has enlisted our help to cover Eurokracy 2013.   The article was published in the April issue.  The Scraped.Crusaders. provided the words and images, while the Eurokracy crew provided the one of best car shows in Canada.  The issue also happens to feature UNIX Performance’s amazing grean MK1, and a bagged Audi 80.  We suggest you take a gander.

IMG_4026 We were able to set up a few shoot with Matt over the week.  This was our first one.  Think it’s safe to say we started with the best. Us – “You sure you want to do this?” Anthony – “Ya” Us – “You should probably put your windows up” Anthony – “they don’t go up” Not verbatim, but that’s pretty much how we prepared for the fountain shots.  Sometimes you just do what you have to, to get that shot.  Glad Matt was there, as I forgot to take photos of this.

It’s a rarity for myself to be this attracted to old VAG content at H20i.  It’s dat character.  We’re glad to have met you Anthony, see you next year.   IMG_3962IMG_3960

 

Vagkraft 2013 by Matt

This year Vagkraft for me was seen from a much different perspective than usual, and that was the perspective of a vendor. Even though the Pfaff Tuning booth did need attention, I was able to slip away and snap some shots of cars that really stood out to me, so here are my personal favorites.

My all time favorite car of the day. Hats off to the owner.

Ladeedub’s City got the air treatment as well, and it was oh so good!

You know when there is that one car every year that sticks in your head, and you keep seeing it at all the meets and shows, but never meet the guy/girl…well that is whats happening for me with this E30 M3. (and even with this love, I still didn’t get a full shot of it <– idiot)

Lets not forget Carm’s E30 posted up right next to the M3.

All in all another great year for a very chill show. Good friends, good crowd, great prizes and some sweet cars.

Eurokracy 2013 | Show Coverage

Chalk up Eurokracy 2013 as over.  These are the last images we have.  I think Matt saved the best for last.

We had Steve’s E30 and Mauricio’s Mk2 in our booth.  If I’m being frank, I think both of these cars could have easily taken home a Eurokracy plate got their categories.

Scraped Crusaders | Eurokracy Kruise 2013 rollers

It was a wet drive, but it seemed as though every time I looked in my rear view, a new car had joined our cruise!

Between Amanda (my other half) and myself, we were able to get some decent rollers. (passanger side shots are hers ;) )

FRS

If you don’t see your car you were either too far back from me, it was raining too hard, or the shot did not turn out :(

Thank you to everyone who tagged along and kept us company on the drive!! It was an awesome cruise. – Matt

 

Weekly Scraped.Crusaders. Meets

Admittedly it started out as a VWVortex meet.  But we’ve outgrown that to include more none VAG cars.  Also the Ontario VWVortex forums sucks camel dicks right now. The weather is finally cooperating   More summer tires will be out in the near future.  :)
