Megaspeed 2014 by Geoff

As Gill mentioned this event provides something for everyone; and we can certainly appreciate all Megaspeed had to offer, I even entertained the idea of trying to get my car there next year :)

Can’t argue with the rat rod look, it suits certain cars so well.

Some of my favorites from the “tuner” section above.

Many of these old school builds put just about everything else to shame :(

Megaspeed 2014

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.

 

Tokyo Autosalon Parking Lot by Tomochika Shibata

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.

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.

Oktoberfest 2013 by Gill

This is usually the FINAL event on the Scraped.Crusaders calendar. We start taking wheels off, raising coils and/or putting our cars away entirely right around this time.  It was a small BBQ event.  Most likely the last time I’ll be seeing most of these cars until next spring.  This year it was held at Euroline Performance in Mississauga.

I may be seeing more of E46s in the future ;)

I THINK this EK was on toyos.  He also had awesome Status seats.

ok2

Toronto’s coolest Porsche just got better.  I beleive the seats are new and the RS/RSR? bumpers were added too.  Love it.

ok13

Cool E92, but seriously, if you can afford this, you can probably afford real wheels.

Golden Showers.

IMG_4026 We were able to set up a few shoot with Matt over the week.  This was our first one.  Think it’s safe to say we started with the best. Us – “You sure you want to do this?” Anthony – “Ya” Us – “You should probably put your windows up” Anthony – “they don’t go up” Not verbatim, but that’s pretty much how we prepared for the fountain shots.  Sometimes you just do what you have to, to get that shot.  Glad Matt was there, as I forgot to take photos of this.

It’s a rarity for myself to be this attracted to old VAG content at H20i.  It’s dat character.  We’re glad to have met you Anthony, see you next year.   IMG_3962IMG_3960

 

Cruisin’ USA

IMG_4094

For me, H20i is the strip.  I’m not a VW guy.  I’m there to cruise up and down Coastal all weekend long.  And have the occasional race.  Considering Bron’s BMW and my Subie are both slow as balls, he was the only person I’d race.  Our first race, I missed third so hard I didn’t even bother searching for it and let off.

Steve is washing off the newly painted E30.  Silver RS’ on White looks great.  I MAY be biased though.  :)

Shits going down when Matt has his trunk open.

Stopped by at the DQ to reminisce about our first H20 trip.  LINK>

Caught some rollers and this purple B5 pulled over for a few warnings.

Cruised some more and stopped at 56th for some more shots.

Berlin Klassik 2013

This was my first time at Berlin Klassik, and while it was further away than most of what we attended this year, it was worth it.

The VW stuff was what we usually expect out of local shows; but the BMW crowd definitely stole the show.

I always try to shoot as many Audi’s as possible, here were a few of my favorites/a few I don’t see as often.

Gill’s old wheels

My 2 favorite Benzes in attendance

Busy Sunday Pt. 2

So as Gill stated, I was SUPER late to Cars and Coffee due to a wicked hangover. Word of advice; $3 tequila shots are NEVER a good idea. BUT we had a busy day ahead of us and I wasn’t worried about that one meet, apart from the 190E that was there. Anyway, I met up with the boys in Aurora where we started our impromptu shoot with the air cooled guys “West side dubs”. I’m pretty sure Matt is still editing those photos, so I will leave those details to him. Next, was the Seven Automotive BBQ… Free food. Honestly, I love going to Japanese meets/shows; there is always free food. Euro scene get your shit together, seriously.

A very tastefull STI

641

LegitGraphics’ WRX. I love the decals on this Subaru and the overall style its going for. Probly the only bug eye I like at all.

642

After the Seven BBQ we headed to Meeting of Mazdas (MOM). To be honest, I don’t think we even would have had any interest in the Mazda world, if it wasn’t for Dave from StanceIsEverything. I was pretty happy we showed up, it had a wicked location and then we saw this MINT Miata. Nothing about it was out of place and the interior was on point. As you can see, I was bent over looking VERY interested in that interior.

636 637 633

Recently I decided to go with the fad and plastidip my car, after much trouble and 6 gallons later. It turned out to be this POS. Overall it does look better then what my car looked like before BUT I do wish I did another color. Overall I’m done with the car and ready to move on to a different chassis, 190E hopefully.

64

Here we are on to the last meet, the grand finale, the one I was waiting for alllllll day. The GotAss? Car wash. I really had to push the boys to go because everyone has a SO and I’m literally the only single one so I personally think they had to put the blame on me that they attended. Oh well, I was happy. (asses were to ratchet to post- Gill)

621

This low rider had UNREAL detail from the paint, trunk set up and even the frame of the car. I was blown away at the detail and had no idea that the low rider scene was like this.

VagKraft 2013 by Gill

I don’t always like VWs but when I do, they’re 2 instagram queens.  @farklefitment’s green hatch and @corrrrrrigan’s red one.

v6v15

@ladeedubxo’s bagged City Golf.  Followed by the rest of my limited VW content.

v14v22

Sean Murphy’s Mk3.  The Stay Strong booth, helped raise funds for Sean who’s rehabilitating from a spinal cord injury.  More info.

v7

Fairly certain these are my old beebs.   Patented chipping paintjob and all.  Almost wish I kept them.

v11

Now on to the cool cars ;).  My favourite car was this M3.  No crazy ruined fender fitment, just a nice low stance.  Perfect.

E39… B======D

Vagkraft 2013 by Matt

This year Vagkraft for me was seen from a much different perspective than usual, and that was the perspective of a vendor. Even though the Pfaff Tuning booth did need attention, I was able to slip away and snap some shots of cars that really stood out to me, so here are my personal favorites.

My all time favorite car of the day. Hats off to the owner.

IMG_0344

Have to give props to my bro for winning this year for the third year in a row, killin it!

IMG_0349 IMG_0339

Sean’s beautiful mk3, we wish you a full recovery my friend.

IMG_0323 IMG_0316

AirAssisted showed up with their laid out 50′s Ford pickup, showing everyone in the air game how it’s done.

IMG_0334

Ladeedub’s City got the air treatment as well, and it was oh so good!

IMG_0328

IMG_0326

Frankie though not in the show, still creates a buzz everywhere this car goes.

IMG_0308
Vossen had a good presence at the Tuning booth this year.

IMG_0311

Second favorite to the TT was this Beetle, god I couldn’t get enough of this thing!

IMG_0331
You know when there is that one car every year that sticks in your head, and you keep seeing it at all the meets and shows, but never meet the guy/girl…well that is whats happening for me with this E30 M3. (and even with this love, I still didn’t get a full shot of it <– idiot)

IMG_0324

Lets not forget Carm’s E30 posted up right next to the M3.

IMG_0336

And if Carm is there, you know Manolo is there :P

All in all another great year for a very chill show. Good friends, good crowd, great prizes and some sweet cars.
