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 […]

Queensway Cruise Nights

Organisation, civility, and standards.   Three things that lack from every big tuner meet in the GTA.  The younger tuner crowd just can’t seem to hold its composure when they’re in a mob setting.  While they’re marginally organised, they are far from civil.  Burnouts, revving, racing up and down the aisles.  Things you only see […]

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 […]

Rollerz Only 2016 BBQ

Ever since I went to my first lowrider show a few years ago, they’ve become the staple in the round of shows I go.   No show scene has me more intrigued than when a car pulls up on three wheels.  In the grand scheme of things, its basically useless to be able to three wheel […]

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 […]

A look back at Eurokracy 2015

As I pack up for Eurokracy 2016, I’m taking a photo dump look back at 2015.  Most if not all of these are David’s pics as I was too inebriated from all the Coors Banquets the night before.  I hope to not repeat the same mistake this year. You know you’re doing well when you […]

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 […]

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 […]

Slippery Slope.

The e36 was in need of some major bushing love.  The front lollipop bushings were non existent.  It made for eventful driving.  So I took it to Moneygang Steve to put in some lollipops, tie rods and control arms………..and weld the diff.  I had considered welding the diff earlier, but there was no real need. […]

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) […]

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 […]

PCA Porsche Concours

After ranting last week about brand fetishists at VAGkraft I’m writing this week about the Porsche Concours event in Burlington a few weeks back.   Suffice, to say there are certain occasions where brand elitism is condoned. Classic 911:  The icon that started the 50 year plus span of 911s. I’ve always split the 911 from ’63-’74 […]

VagKraft 2015

When your friends are all VW fanboys you simultaneously grow an appreciation and a hatred for all things Volkswagen.  You appreciate the builds and comradery.  You hate the constant VW talk and the unwarranted brand elitism and fetishism. I’m fairly certain if I were friends with a group of people in another car niche, I’d have […]

Porsche Centre Oakville

There was little notice, if any, of this Porsche meet at Porsche Centre Oakville.  I only learned about it on Instagram.  I’m glad I went through with it though.  Albeit a tad late, I was told by Mauncho and Kurt (from Krazyhaus) that I had missed a good amount of cars. The classics were out.   […]

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. […]
