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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

CSCS Pitts

I have a  bunch of photosets to go through and edit from late last year.   I go to drift events to take photos in the pits.  That about sums up all of my trips to Shannonville.  I feel Overdraftlife has more than enough great coverage of all the drift action.  I like having a look at […]

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) […]

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. […]

I Spent the Weekend in the Gridlife Zone

A few weeks ago I got a call from my buddy Martino from Garage Collective saying he was going to Gridlife and had an extra seat. Having no idea what, when or where Gridlife is, I obliged. Why not, what’s the worst that could happen. I love road trips, and the idea of going to […]

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 […]

Cars and Coffee Season Opener

Dart, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, Corvette, Corvette.  Few things have me waking up at 7am on a Sunday.  That line up will do it. Yesterday was the first Cars and Coffee event held at Engineered Automotive.  They’re held the first Sunday of every month in Vaughn.  The early time of 8-11am seems to deter most of the riff […]

Topp Drift Throwback

The first Topp Drift event is coming up fast.  It’s scheduled for April 12th at Shannonville.  To get us in the mood for drifting again, we’re posting pics from an event last year. Steve’s E30 has been decommissioned for this season.  He’s moved on to an E46 chassis.  Link to his build, HERE.  And in […]

Scraped Crusaders at Money Gang: Winter Builds Part 2

Part 2 of our look at MONEY GANG, with Marin, Mitch and myself. Marin’s always been known as some sort of Zen drift character that people can’t get enough of. Ever since his killer 2012 CSCS season, where he literally cleaned up the competition, he’s made quite the name for himself. Not many have pushed […]

Getting Lost in the Build

You’ve just done your first drift day. You’ve had a great day and spent a lot of time setting up a mild tune in your early-mid 90s Nissan, Toyota, BMW or whatever. You got yourself some good-ass coilovers, some extra wheels, a track oriented alignment and a bunch of tires with similar compounds–the whatever’s free […]

Pfaff Tuning Show and Shine BBQ

We finally got around to posting more photos from the Pfaff Tuning Show and Shine.  It took place the week before H2Oi so we were all a tad pre-occupied.  It was still a great show, with an array of different cars.  Matt Berenz did a fantastic job of organizing the entire day.  I’m certain next […]
