Touge Tuning Meet.

The TougeTuning meet.  I had zero expectations for this meet.  I figured since it was very early into the season the amount of cars would be bleak.  Seeing as though its been one of the longest winters in recent memories, how many cars would be ready for late April?  Apparently a lot.

@NA1Danio ‘s NSX.   LevelOne at its finest.

There was nothing more I wanted in high school than a blue GC coupe, with a big wing, big exhaust and gold wheels.  I think I want one again.

Scraped.Crusaders. at TOPP Drift by Gill

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.

From show car to drift slut. I’m sad i won’t see this car on the road anymore, but I’m excited to see it going sideways. Expect more changes for Steve.

Maybe painting it white, wasn’t such a good idea.

Drifting is an expensive and dirty sport.  Luckily with the help of sponsors like Wheel Direct, many grassroots drivers are able to lap all day.

You might have seen Marin’s 240 in this Sylvania commercial.  Though, with more fenders.

More pics from Geoff soon.  He was able to grab more sideways shots.

CIAS 2014

Early February means one thing for us…. we get to attend press day for the Canadian International Autoshow.   We are privileged to be accredited media for the event.  Roaming the show floor with only press minus the hustle and bustle of the general public is a totally different experience.  We are allowed to take much better photos and get a more in depth and personal experience with most of the cars.  We’re not in the market for a 6 figure luxury sedan anytime soon, but it’s nice pretending for a day.

The Mclaren P1 is hands down THE one car you need to see at the CIAS.  It is the new bedroom poster king.  Taking over from our  F40, 959, Countach, and F1 posters.  Pfaff also brought out their MP4-12C Spa-F and roadster to the super car hall.  While the Heffner Turbo R8, Porsche 964 Turbo and Mercedes SLS Roadster were among their other display cars in their other display.

One would think racecars standing still are a sad sight.  They unfortunately can`t be racing all of the time.  Luckily they look just as fast standing still.  Can`t get enough splitters, diffusers, wings, toe hooks, centre locks.

Road cars and concepts make up most of the show floor.  The last few photos show off an awesome paint finish from Ferrari.  Also great shades of blue from BMW and Subaru.

Subaru Hypermeet 2013: Subarus

After a quick pitstop at Cars and Coffee I made my way over to the 2013 Subaru Hypermeet.  I felt like there was a tad more variety this year compared to previous years.  HREs would not have been seen before.  Neither would that Forester trailer combo.

This.  Pretty much the car I lusted after in high school  Blue GC, with rally style (Compomotive, Impuls etc) wheels.

Satin red Plastidipped GD.  Well done.

My old wheels!!  The owner is still happy with them.  Even sporting the same 2+ year old paint job.  Industrial rust paint FTW.

Money.

Tremcladed by the owner on his driveway.  Impressize.  My tremcladed bumper on the other hand looks like ass.

The addition of the BRZ, is much welcomed.

Precision Rim Repair.

We like shinny things.  When Geoff and I decided to get our wheels refinished we wanted to have the best.  I’ve always been impressed with Dave’s (of Stanceiseverything.com) Works.  So I went to the shop responsible for polishing them.   Precision Rim Repair.  They are more than just a polishing shop.  They correct bends, re weld cracks, sandblast, strip, and overall perform miracles on damaged wheels.  While dropping the wheels off Ric found a crack on one of my barrels.  Fortunately, I was already at the right place.  It was welded up while the set was getting polished.  Geoff`s LM`s are currently getting a polish job too.  Along with a few dents straightened.
Pics of my beebs soon.  This preview will do for now/  ;)
