The last few shots from our H20i trip consists of the multitude of visitors and random cars that came by 75th. Most of whom stopped by to see Brian Arthus who seems to know everyone with a car in the U.S. Including @farklefitment.
@jdmodz`s BestJDM winner at First Class Fitment
I’m now a bit biased on big body black BMWs.
Clean Impreza, stopped by for the views.
Fellow feathered Canadian brethren stopped by too.
We finally got around to posting more photos from the Pfaff Tuning Show and Shine. It took place the week before H2Oi so we were all a tad pre-occupied. It was still a great show, with an array of different cars. Matt Berenz did a fantastic job of organizing the entire day. I’m certain next year’s edition will be bigger and better.
Where else would you see a MK2 Golf and an Aventador at the same lot? With Mauricio’s MK2 winning best of show no less. The Best of Show award was presented by us, however the judging was conducted by Pfaff employees. It was the best way to avoid any biased decisions.
I was told this Callaway Mk1 was very rare. We also saw the Mk1 on our way back from H2Oi. Glad to see the owner puts some good mileage on it.
If you see an Alpina Sedan in Toronto, it’s probably owned by Sia. He’s got a handful of them now. This E28 however is his s54 swapped 525i. It took home the award for Best Engine bay and was also featured in PBMW a few years back. The E39 below was the first B10 Alpina to be imported into North America. He also has another E28, and e32, e34 Alpinas in the stable. I think he has a problem.
The front of the Pfaff building was where most of the action took place. Porsche GT3, Rocket Bunny GTR and RX-7 along with a few others.
I think this was the first time I’ve seen a twin-turbo’d Gallardo. Puffs of smoke are a good thing, right?
Matt and Geoff’s Grandmother was very pleased with the show as well. Here she is checking out an R8.
Sony Canada, had a big booth for the event along with raffle prizes. I was fortunate enough to win one of those AS100 cameras. Which I immediately sold to Matt after H2O, I think he’ll get way better use out of it than I will.
PFaff Tuning also had cars displayed indoors. Including Erik’s Saab and Jimmy’s M3.
The 991 below stands as my current dream daily. Every bit as good as the 991 GT3 but with a stick shift.
As with every car show the parking lot still has some nice vehicles. Erik’s boosted Probe is a prime example.
This Sunday in Brampton is what I look forward to most each summer; thankfully we had some summer weather. I didn’t get as many shots as I should have, but between spending hours detailing my car and trying to avoid excessive sun; it didn’t happen. I’ve been following this car online for some time now; it all started with wheels that didn’t fit…they do now.
Lu’s TT…now with Recaros, as if I didn’t like it enough before.
Every year there are more and more B5’s at this show; this makes me happy.
Tucked away at the Bradley Museum in Mississauga, Euronited put on a pretty good show this past Sunday. Luckily I had enough time to grab pics, grab lunch and get back in time for the World Cup.
Oskar’s S4. Bagged on CCWs with a full interior done by InsideJob Upholstery. I’m on the fence about the heckbelende though, I haven’t decided if I like it or not.
Erik’s awesome SAAB 9-3. A damn shame, Saab, isn’t around anymore.
Not often do we post MK3s, but I think for this one, we can make an exception.
I assure you, there is a MK4 in this image.
Now on to the important stuff. The 4 (not including mine) E34’s that showed up. First is this Japanese Import Aplina B10 3.5. The owner, seen above, bought the car from BC with a little over 86K in 2010 and drove it back through the US. He’s swiftly put on 26K in the time since.
Few cars look good in retro graphics. All of the Alpina stuff is timeless. The same goes for their wheels.
How does a 25 year old cloth interior look so good? Cloth Alpina Recaros are the unicorm E34 seats, god damn, they’re gorgeous.
The full AC Schnitzer kit is actually nice when all the parts are fitted and not broken. I wish I had this entire bumper rather than just the top half of it. Even the retro side panelling is nice. So, period correct.
This early M5 was fresh off a track day. The front track tires were completely worn and the rear 888s weren’t any better. The owner also indicated some boost might be in the near future.
Lastly, this E34 touring. I had no idea it was even there. I was just able to snap a few shots as he left.
I LOVE Yas Marina Blue. And I love the M4s more, knowing they’re underating the horsepower. The 425HP F82 actually makes 460hp at the crank.
This was my first time attending June Jitterbug but I can tell you this definitely will not be my last. The warm sunny weather, The drive up on the highway littered with slammed dubs and even parking in Firemens park. Everything was perfect. There were a lot of quality cars there that caught my attention. Between being distracted by staring at cars, talking to the owners and walking around with friends I managed to take some photos every now and then. After all, there is nothing better than everyone getting together enjoying what we all enjoy most.
This is Canada’s Premier car show. Let alone European car show. We’ve been attending Eurokracy since it’s inception and have been shown open arms by the organizers Rick, Sergio and Jesse. We definitely feel part of the Eurokracy family. So much so, they allowed us to present our award for our favourite ride on stage. While my time with the mic was botched by stage fright, perhaps I should have prepared some words before hand. We ended up awarding this 1.8T swapped MK1 below. It was super clean with an amazing swap. It just felt right picking a Mk1 too. The severe heat limited the number of photos we have. The shade of our tent was very very compelling.
Sharing the stage with Sam Dobbins and his epic food saver.
993, with Ruf front and rear bumpers. The Porsche fanboy within tells me this was the coolest car at the show.
When BagRiders bring up their own E92, you know you’re in for a great show. You hear about the LibertyWalk Auto kit as now bring played out. When is the last time you’ve seen one in person? They are an impressive piece of kit. Just because you see them online does not mean the work going into one should be downplayed.
Bronson’s 540i ripping up the track. Definitely one of the better sounding cars of the day. The best time I believe was a 15.4, not bad for a 3800~ lbs luxary yacht with an open diff and blown suspension.
Chris’ Mk5, newly christened with OZ Futuras.
Redbull gives you wings. Seems like a little too much though. #redbullhigh
