FITTED Ontario Place

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 […]

86 Day 2015 at Cyrious Garage

August, 6th,  86 Day in the car community.  The AE86 authority in Mississauga is definitely Cyrious Garage.  Having campaigned their coupe for numerous years in DMCC and FD Pro2.  Every year they open up their shop on this day for a small pop up meet.  And pretty much every 86 in the GTA showed up. […]

Garage 16 BBQ

Maybe I’m biased because I used to own a Subaru, but the JDM parts shop definitely put on better shows that the Euro shops in the GTA.  I may be biased again as the JDM shops always offer free food and drinks. I also have a soft spot for clean EFs.  Or THE cleanest EF. […]

Cars and Coffee July

Cars and Coffee July is in the books.  As per usual I was able to see a car that I normally would not see.  The Lancia Integrale Evo, below looked amazing in red.   By todays standards the 220hp isn’t much but 25 years ago it took hatchbacks to another level. This Chevrolet Acadian is […]

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 […]

Canadian International Autoshow via Gill

Just got around to editing the few shots I took at the Autoshow.  Not often…or ever are the stars of the show from Ford.  The Ford GT and Mustang GT350R were by far the most noteworthy cars there.  One is a legit supercar built in Canada the other is a factory V8 track.  They both […]

Canadian International Autoshow 2015 via Geoff

We’ve been heading to the Autoshow as a group for about 4-5 years now.  It’s not quite as good as it was back in the hay day when the show included the Skydome but it always has its highlights.  This years highlight was undoubtedly the cars at Ford.  Not often are we excited to see […]

86 Day

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 […]

Megaspeed 2014

This was our first visit to a Megaspeed/Performance World show.  I felt it was a good kickoff to show season.  Though the chilly weather outside did nothing to agree. I did see some facebook statuses at the smaller show size this year.  However for new visitors like us, we did not notice such.  What we […]

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 […]

Tires23 BBQ

After Cars and Coffee and Subaru Hypermeet came the TIres23 BBQ.   Year in and year out the BBQ events that local parts stores put one are my favourite.  Maybe I’m just a sucker for free food.  Definitely wasn’t missing the Tires23 event either.  I’ve only been there 10 times or so this summer alone […]

Detour at GT Custom

Brian, Adrian and I were off to get drinks….then some how ended up here.  Not quite a day off for GT Custom.  No customers, yet there are still cars in the shop. Matt’s nearly complete turbo’d IS. Dat JDM swag. Helping the day go faster.

Portraits of CIAS 2013

I’ve found the Autoshow to provide great photo opportunities.  Unfortunately, the background ruins a lot of the shots.  I’ve tried to go for up close photos to fix that.  Practice, practice, practice.  I honestly didn’t think I’d be uploading my own photos as much as I have lately.  More to come!!

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 […]
