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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


PCO Late Season Meet

That movie where the main character is helplessly watching his/her dreams slip away.  That’s what the prospect of Porsche ownership looks like with these crazy prices.  They’ve gone from “maybe one day” to “this bubble will explode soon, right?”. For now,  I’ll have to keep looking at these from this end of the camera. And […]


CIAS 2016

The internet has ruined the suspense around autoshows world wide.  There is no anticipation outside of Frankfurt, Geneva, Detroit, Paris and Tokyo.  That’s where all of the big name unveilings take place.  All of which are immediately broadcast on social media.  It was much different a 15-20 years ago.  You had to wait until physical print […]


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 […]
