I Spent the Weekend in the Gridlife Zone

A few weeks ago I got a call from my buddy Martino from Garage Collective saying he was going to Gridlife and had an extra seat. Having no idea what, when or where Gridlife is, I obliged. Why not, what’s the worst that could happen. I love road trips, and the idea of going to […]

CSCS August 11th

CSCS,  show and shine, time attack and drifting.  There are no other events locally that combine these three things.  As a person who’s attention span is very very limited ,the multiple aspects to the show are welcome.  It’s hard not to be a fan of time attack and drifting when they are witnessed in person. […]

Tokyo Autosalon by Tomochika Shibata pt.1

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 […]

Scraped.Crusaders. Favourite Ride of 2013

Our crew always has a favourite car of the year.  We never post about it.   We just always have one car we talk about.  And it’s always from H2Oi.  Previous years include Jay’s Legacy Wagon, LooneyLow’s Civic, that boosted Trailblazer (everyone who was there, knows the one).  Inevitably there would be more this year. […]

Cars and Coffee Finale 2013

We have been fairly regular at Cars and Coffee the last few weeks. I’m particularly glad we made it for the last week of the season EA shows up. The turnout was the best we’ve seen. Benzes were aplenty. A couple less popular Ferrari’s were also in attendance. One of my top 5 favorite cars; […]

Tires23 BBQ v.2

As Gill said; we have a lot of fun at these “small” customer appreciation BBQ’s. The wide array of cars affords everyone something to love. For me, it was this 993. I also spent a good deal of time drooling over these 2 M cars. Bagged widebody cars? Check. One of the few cars that […]

Snow Shenanigans

We haven’t had any photo shoots as a group this winter.  We decided to gather 5 MK2s and do what we do.  But before that some of us watched Dredd at Matt’s house.  Verdict:  The movie is awesome. Parking at Matt’s. Everyday I’m shufflin. Uncle shows up in his s4 just when we were leaving. Off to […]

Frozen Friday.

Took a few shots of the wagon after work.  Photos are a work in progress for me.  I’d like to hear some critiques, if you have time to spare.  Cheers. 🙂 Missin a bolt.  YOLO.                             …..I’ll see myself out.

Work’s for sale!

Need something new for next season? Here is your chance. We seem to have a set of wheels for sale…shocking. I picked these up off their original owner recently. The wheels are in great overall shape and are still original (sticker, seals, bolts, valve stems, etc.) All the bolts, centre caps, etc. can be had […]

CSCS x Fitted Showcase

Fitted showcase is the season finale event for the Stretch and Poke crew.  It’s in conjuction with CSCS so we’re definitely down.

IMPORTEXPO 2012

IMPORTEXPO is upon us again.  October 13th, it will be held indoors at Markhams Fairgrounds.  The event features selected cars from registrants.  So, you won’t be seeing shitty vehicles.  IMPORTEXPO’s own NSX is reason alone to go to the show.  We’ll be providing coverage for those who are unable to attend.  Also there will be

Stretch and Poke 2012: Fitted

We braved the intensely overcast sky yesterday to attend the first Stretch and Poke show of 2012. Having attended MOST of these events in the past it is safe to say this show has grown exponentially and there doesn’t seem to be any sign of that changing.
