REDUX

We haven’t posted here in just over a year.  There wasn’t an exact reason for it.  A few factors were involved, mostly the ease of posting entirely to FB and Instagram coupled with the lost passion to pump out material.  More so the editing a bunch of pictures solely to photo dump them online.  It […]

From Main to Side Chick

This was supposed to be my beater.  My cheap, everyday, grimy BMW that I could drive daily without concern.  Now shes the mistress I only see in warm weather, and only usually on the weekends.  What changed?  She went through some cosmetic and mechanical upgrades passing through the threshold of beater status to photogenic respectability. […]

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 […]

Dip Your Toes or Dive In Head First?

I recently started thinking about the plight of the daily driven drift cars – drivers want to get reckless at the track and shred some tires, but still have to get to work on Monday and pick up groceries on their way home. Those who want to compete and elevate their drift status but need […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

MacDaddy

There are race cars then there are RACECARs.  Some racecars are placed in the upper echelon of sporting history.  Your 917s, 956s, GT40s, Lotus 49, Jag D-Type etc.  In my opinion the F1 GTR is one of those cars.  Not since the early 70’s has a car so closely based on a production based car […]

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 […]
