86 Day

ae6

86 day, August 6th.  Its the first time I’ve heard of it. As soon as I found out Cyrious Garageworks was holding festivities, I was there along with Dave.  We probably should have shown up a bit early to take photos.  It was really dark within an hour.  Also I think i took more pics of non AE86s than 86s.

I can’t wait till I put my coilovers on.  I haven’t been able to comfortable park my car within the cool cars for months.  I parked in the adjacent lot with this guy.

I had no idea the GTA had this many clean 86s.  I was fully expecting rusted rockers, bent quarters and flimsy bumpers.  Instead, there were 10-15 of the cleanest Corollas I’ve ever seen.

Got my first look at Aiden’s new wheel setup.  Those Luxaru Abstracts are damn nice.

Big body sedans with RWD and a turbo.  This Chaser fits the bill for my ideal daily.

Dan’s Lexus, looking good as always.

There was a lineup of around 30 BRZ/FR-Ss.  I only grab a pic of one lol

Satin Starlet.  I really like the green paint on this one.

It may not be in the greatest condition, but I’m glad this Celica is still on the road.

NextMod Mississauga X Scion Meet.

This was a last minute meet I heard about through Instagram. I checked the forecast to see if there would be rain, clears skies ahead they said.    So I made my way down to Mississauga, to meet Dave from Stanceiseverything.com.  Unfortuntely, it started to rain within 20 minutes of my arrival.  Back to Brampton I went.  I was only able to grab a few shots.

Chris’ Rocket Bunny Scion is definitely one of my favourite Tra Kyoto builds.  The charcoal silver and black wheels work very wheel together.

Navin’s Rocket Bunny FD.  Whats not to like about an RX-7?  I’m not sure any other car has aged as well is the FD.

Mathew’s S14.  Cleanest S chassis around.  While I love S chassis that live the drift slut life a clean S is so damn refreshing.

I have never been to a Lowrider event.  I’ve seen a few at Kennedy Commons, but that was about it.  I’ve always loved them from a far.  Dr.Dre, Snoop and Xzibit adding to the allure. The great thing about lowriders, every one seems to love them.  Stance, muscle, import, euro, jdm etc, all of these scenes divide public interest.  While Lowriders are seemingly ogled by all.   I’m glad Dave from Stanceiseverything.com posted up the show info a few days ago.  It was a great way to spend the Saturday.

The Impala is the quintessential Lowrider.  Chilango (above) and I think the 2 below define the scene.

While I love the Impalas,  I was really drawn to the Cadillacs.  The HUGE body with very boxy design cues, abide with my love for land yachts.

Face down, ass up.

Land yacht defined.

Another staple is the classic G-body.  This includes, Regals, Monte Carlos, and Cutlesses.  The above Cutless broke a chain.  Off course, jacking up a corner is as easily as hittin a switch.

I should have stayed a bit longer.  This Lincoln obliterated it’s grill in the hoping competition. Link.

In the lowrider world, crowds flock to the open trunk, rather than the open hood.

The above Eighty-8, is for sale on the Toronto Kijiji page, if anyone is interested.


Its safe to say I’ve been on a Lowrider binge since going to this event.  Including numerous Kijiji (craigslist) searches and many many youtube videos.
