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 […]


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. […]


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.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, […]


Eurokracy Kruise 2015 and Arrival

2015 marks the 3rd running of our Kruise to Eurokracy.   We usually have 7-8 of our own crew plus 20-30 cars by the time we get to Montreal.  This year we TRIED to lead the cruise in Steve’s tow rig.  But apparently our 120kmph speed was too slow for a bunch of the cruise […]


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 […]
