Tucked away at the Bradley Museum in Mississauga, Euronited put on a pretty good show this past Sunday. Luckily I had enough time to grab pics, grab lunch and get back in time for the World Cup.
Oskar’s S4. Bagged on CCWs with a full interior done by InsideJob Upholstery. I’m on the fence about the heckbelende though, I haven’t decided if I like it or not.
Erik’s awesome SAAB 9-3. A damn shame, Saab, isn’t around anymore.
Not often do we post MK3s, but I think for this one, we can make an exception.
I assure you, there is a MK4 in this image.
Now on to the important stuff. The 4 (not including mine) E34′s that showed up. First is this Japanese Import Aplina B10 3.5. The owner, seen above, bought the car from BC with a little over 86K in 2010 and drove it back through the US. He’s swiftly put on 26K in the time since.
Few cars look good in retro graphics. All of the Alpina stuff is timeless. The same goes for their wheels.
How does a 25 year old cloth interior look so good? Cloth Alpina Recaros are the unicorm E34 seats, god damn, they’re gorgeous.
The full AC Schnitzer kit is actually nice when all the parts are fitted and not broken. I wish I had this entire bumper rather than just the top half of it. Even the retro side panelling is nice. So, period correct.
This early M5 was fresh off a track day. The front track tires were completely worn and the rear 888s weren’t any better. The owner also indicated some boost might be in the near future.
Lastly, this E34 touring. I had no idea it was even there. I was just able to snap a few shots as he left.
I LOVE Yas Marina Blue. And I love the M4s more, knowing they’re underating the horsepower. The 425HP F82 actually makes 460hp at the crank.
It must have been the weather or something. We usually have 2-3 photographers at each event. The heat was just killer that day, I guess. Luckily for us, Tylyr stepped up to the plate. Tyler Lenc has been in contact with us for a while now. His photography has really gotten better as of late, so we’re happy to post these pics.
The World Endurance Championship, might be the new king. Formula 1 will forever keep my interest. It has its ups and downs and the allure of the best drivers and teams is too hard to ignore. However, the WEC is starting to steer my interests elsewhere. A few things are needed for series to enter into legendary status. Ala, Group C, Group B, super tourers, or the first Turbo f1 era. Great drivers, great teams, great cars and great racing. The new WEC generation arguably rivals those great racing eras. It will be the stuff of legends, decade into the future. Heading into Le Mans, no one can accurately predict the winner of the race. Audi, Porsche and Toyota all have a legitimate chance to win. With Nissan joining the fold for 2015 and Ferrari (program is rumoured to be unveiled this Saturday) in 2016, the WEC will be impossible to ignore. AWD, RWD, V4, V6, V8, V10, gas, diesel, electric, hybrids, turbos, KERS, Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Toyota, Chevrolet, BMW, Nissan, Rebellion, Morgan, ORECA, Ligier, Aston Martin. This is variety that you will not see on the F1 circuit. Below are the spotter guides for all 55 entries. All eyes will be glued to the 7 front runners though. My bold prediction ahead of the race has the No.7 Toyota car on top of the podium at the end.
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 available, this things has come such a long way since that meet at Humber Park.
The main reason to visit a show like this, the variety.
This thing caught my eye almost immediately. Nothing crazy, just simply, and damn cool!
Something about a bagged RX7 would have a lot of people scratching their heads…me, well…you know how I feel about bags.
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 Lifestyle presented by Broadway Static Suspension
After much deliberation we chose the W114 owned by the mustachioed Richard C. We didn’t have certain criteria to go by. We didn’t hold prejudices against Euro, Domestic or Japanese rides. We simply chose the car that we loved, that had that je ne sais quoi.
An Old Merc, bagged on RSs coloured matched to an awesome cream interior. Finished off with blue centre caps. It’s not an extensive build. But its a build that was built with all the correct choices.
Continuing the bagged coupe theme is this awesome RX-7.
Scott had a bagged white E46 M3 last year. He now owns THE most unassuming 450hp+ car I’ve ever seen. This is phase 1 for his 135.
A Y O G R L.
Mark’s freshly painted and Beebed S2k.
I didn’t spend too much time outdoors as I haven’t adjusted to the warm weather yet. However there were some great example of cars that could had easily been displayed indoors. Including that EF civic, the Teknotik EVO and Jay’s 2.7TT swapped B6 Audi.
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.
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 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.
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.
