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 […]

PCO Late Season Meet

That movie where the main character is helplessly watching his/her dreams slip away.  That’s what the prospect of Porsche ownership looks like with these crazy prices.  They’ve gone from “maybe one day” to “this bubble will explode soon, right?”. For now,  I’ll have to keep looking at these from this end of the camera. And […]

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 […]

CSCS Pitts

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 […]

Cars and Coffee Closer

As show season wound down, I needed one last Cars and Coffee fix.  After initially cancelling all Setptember C&C events, the Engineered Automotive decided to host one last show in October. I obviously couldn’t miss it.  It was the last opportunity to bring out the E34, see a few friends before winter hibernation and check out […]

PCA Porsche Concours

After ranting last week about brand fetishists at VAGkraft I’m writing this week about the Porsche Concours event in Burlington a few weeks back.   Suffice, to say there are certain occasions where brand elitism is condoned. Classic 911:  The icon that started the 50 year plus span of 911s. I’ve always split the 911 from ’63-’74 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Porsche Centre Oakville

There was little notice, if any, of this Porsche meet at Porsche Centre Oakville.  I only learned about it on Instagram.  I’m glad I went through with it though.  Albeit a tad late, I was told by Mauncho and Kurt (from Krazyhaus) that I had missed a good amount of cars. The classics were out.   […]
