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 […]
I recently started thinking about the plight of the daily driven drift cars – drivers want to get reckless at the track and shred some tires, but still have to get to work on Monday and pick up groceries on their way home. Those who want to compete and elevate their drift status but need […]
My birthday is in early March. Year in and year out, its around the time I start getting my car ready for Spring. Which is just essentially lowering the car and putting some summer wheels on. And possibly washing it for the first time in months. Since I now have an E36, I tried to […]
New beginnings for a bunch of us. It may not be warm enough yet but there is no time to wait. Show and drift season is just around the corner. Dave is working on a VR swap and selling his diesel motor. Dan is building and parting out way too many VWs to keep […]
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 […]
I have a bunch of photosets to go through and edit from late last year. I go to drift events to take photos in the pits. That about sums up all of my trips to Shannonville. I feel Overdraftlife has more than enough great coverage of all the drift action. I like having a look at […]
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 […]
There are 3 staples in our year. Eurokracy, H20i and Fitted. We’ve been attending FITTED for over 4 years now, going back to the second ever Stretch and Poke event at Lakeshore. We’ve gone from casual attendees to now being able to bring 2 builds and a booth. This year we had Danny’s 1.8T swapped […]
Although the weather this week disagrees, show season in Toronto is slowly getting under way. The first show of 2015 was the BMW/Mercedes True North BBQ held at Eurocharged. It was in North York so the drive out wasn’t too bad and I was able to convince Danny and a few others to come out from […]
Grassroots drifting in Ontario has one major hub. Shannonville. Its not the best facility, it’s in the boonies, its muddy, drivers act like dickbags in the pits but it’s where the majority of the Ontario drifters show up. The chicken fingers and poutine are actually pretty good though. Steve, nor Danny nor Devo had […]
Jakub “Musk” Tatara, the owner of that crazy bagged E38, and his other BMWs.
The weather is cold. It’s actually fucking freezing here. Across the street from my destination, the armpit of Southern Oshawa (a bar called the Down Omer) is almost vacant; Nothing surprising at 3 O’clock on a Thursday. Sandwiched between a 24 hour Mac’s Milk gas station and a privately owned drab Office Supplies Depot, you […]
I’ve lost count how many shoots Matt Berenz has done for magazines with local content. This is StanceFactory’s S54 swapped E36 that he shot for Performance BMW. Its amazing how you can take bits from other BMWs and combine them to make an absolute weapon.
Damn kids making the fitment on my old Legacy look weak.
If you can’t do it in real life, do it on Live for Speed?
It felt awesome to get the first show/event under belt. Winter needs to frickin die. The weather was great enough to warrant only t-shirts. That made the TOPP Drift season opener even better. First and foremost we were there to watch and support Steve and his e30. #kristofflovesthis From show car to drift slut. I’m […]
