H2Oi 2016: Arrival

I had skipped out on the 2015 festivities.  The traffic and drunk hooliganism from 2014 put me off for a whole year.  Fortunately,  last year was REALLY H2Oi, with constant tropical storm/hurricane conditions.  I didn’t miss much.  Initially, I hadn’t planned on trekking down  for the 2016 event either.  But at the last second I […]

7th Annual FITTED

FITTED is Toronto’s unofficial car show season opener.  Positioned early enough in the year for most to unveil the work that was completed over the winter months. There were a few builds I was keeping an eye on.  Including Miro’s Camaro.  I’ve seen the unfinished item on a few occasions but the fully finished unit […]

Oktoberfest 2015

Oktoberfest in Mississauga is usually the last meet/show of the year before my winter wheels go on.  That was the case this year again.  Its the last hoorah for a bunch of us, and I was glad to say goodbye to a few people and cars until spring.   Including Dave and his Speed3. Being “Oktoberfest”  it was […]

CIAS 2016

The internet has ruined the suspense around autoshows world wide.  There is no anticipation outside of Frankfurt, Geneva, Detroit, Paris and Tokyo.  That’s where all of the big name unveilings take place.  All of which are immediately broadcast on social media.  It was much different a 15-20 years ago.  You had to wait until physical print […]

True North “Show”Room

I was initially excited to go to the BMW/Mercedes/Audi TrueNorth event.  There were tons of people sharing my views on Facebook leading up to the event.  After arriving at the “show”  I thought I took a wrong turn somewhere and wound up at a showroom or service lot.  Maybe its the initial purchase price, or the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cars and Coffee June

Cars, and free coffee and timbits in one location?   Count on me there. Typically when someone says domestics we think of shitbox sedans.  Luckily the domestics here are all actually desirable. I’m told this is a ’32 Ford with a Chevy small block. Still the coolest hood in the game. Not often do cars in […]

Busy Weekend

I had a few things on my plate this past Weekend. The Subaru Spring Fling,  errands at a buddies house in the boonies North of Pickering, Steve’s shop to mount some wheels/tires, the Eurotouch Tuning BBQ and the Krispy Kreme meet.  Unforturnatly I haven’t been able to find my camera charger and the low battery indicator […]
