This was our first visit to a Megaspeed/Performance World show. I felt it was a good kickoff to show season. Though the chilly weather outside did nothing to agree. I did see some facebook statuses at the smaller show size this year. However for new visitors like us, we did not notice such. What we did notice was the nice mix of hot rods, muscle cars, drag cars, imports and tuner cars.
Love me some Toyota VTEC.
The stance on this 300C was spot on. And KJohn’s MazdaSpeed3 looked great with the flares and Boso exhaust.
I heard Dreamworks’ Turbo movie was based on this car.
Something tells me @hoowybrow won’t be needing that wax any time soon. Natural patina at it finest.
If you don’t have time for a natural patina, just paint it on. It was however very well done.
It’s been a while since we’ve posted Mike’s Subaru swapped Karmann Ghia. LINK. He was recently able to touch up his paint, add a few leather bits and button up a couple more things. it isn’t up and running just yet, but when that does happen, we’ll be sure to post the videos.
Those leather straps look MONEY.
I can’t believe this was a spray job. I’ve seen factory finishes that look worse than this. Rajiv, gives his approval.
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.
Early February means one thing for us…. we get to attend press day for the Canadian International Autoshow. We are privileged to be accredited media for the event. Roaming the show floor with only press minus the hustle and bustle of the general public is a totally different experience. We are allowed to take much better photos and get a more in depth and personal experience with most of the cars. We’re not in the market for a 6 figure luxury sedan anytime soon, but it’s nice pretending for a day.
The Mclaren P1 is hands down THE one car you need to see at the CIAS. It is the new bedroom poster king. Taking over from our F40, 959, Countach, and F1 posters. Pfaff also brought out their MP4-12C Spa-F and roadster to the super car hall. While the Heffner Turbo R8, Porsche 964 Turbo and Mercedes SLS Roadster were among their other display cars in their other display.
One would think racecars standing still are a sad sight. They unfortunately can`t be racing all of the time. Luckily they look just as fast standing still. Can`t get enough splitters, diffusers, wings, toe hooks, centre locks.
Road cars and concepts make up most of the show floor. The last few photos show off an awesome paint finish from Ferrari. Also great shades of blue from BMW and Subaru.
Many of the car show we’ve been to, the lot provides as much content as the main deal. The better the show the better the lot. The lot at the Tokyo Auto Salon should provide a few nice rides. Images are all provided by Tomochika Shibata.
The Kawashima Celica.
A stock Celica for comparison.
Loving the character of this R32.
Fender mirrors and a duckbill spoiler. A combo we never see in Toronto
Given this is Japan, this thing is probably static.
We’ve been in contact with Tomochika Shibata for a few years now. He was one of our first Japanese fans to comment on our site. It felt awesome having some fans overseas. He recently had the opportunity to go to this year’s Tokyo Autosalon aka the coolest car show in Japan. So I asked him to send along a few photos.
326Power’s insane GS. Static, obviously.
The Roberuta F40 has already made the internet blog rounds.
Of course they’d have an E30 touring. Love the 90′s feel to this car.
Kin Jong Un?
Definaetly one of my favourite Japanese rides this year. Bee Dragon’s Nissan Y33 Cima.
The aero details for many of todays racecars is just amazing.
