PCA Porsche Concours

After ranting last week about brand fetishists at VAGkraft I’m writing this week about the Porsche Concours event in Burlington a few weeks back.   Suffice, to say there are certain occasions where brand elitism is condoned. Classic 911:  The icon that started the 50 year plus span of 911s. I’ve always split the 911 from ’63-’74 […]


VagKraft 2015

When your friends are all VW fanboys you simultaneously grow an appreciation and a hatred for all things Volkswagen.  You appreciate the builds and comradery.  You hate the constant VW talk and the unwarranted brand elitism and fetishism. I’m fairly certain if I were friends with a group of people in another car niche, I’d have […]


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 […]


Cars and Coffee July

Cars and Coffee July is in the books.  As per usual I was able to see a car that I normally would not see.  The Lancia Integrale Evo, below looked amazing in red.   By todays standards the 220hp isn’t much but 25 years ago it took hatchbacks to another level. This Chevrolet Acadian is […]


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 […]
