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.   […]

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. […]

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 […]

Eurokracy 2015 via Geoff

As per usual we were in attendance for Eurokracy this year; it goes without saying that we don’t miss this one. With a new venue for 2015 and more cars in attendance than I have ever seen, this year may have just been the best yet. That being said, great weather (meaning I was hot […]

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 […]

Cars and Coffee Season Opener

Dart, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, 911, Corvette, Corvette.  Few things have me waking up at 7am on a Sunday.  That line up will do it. Yesterday was the first Cars and Coffee event held at Engineered Automotive.  They’re held the first Sunday of every month in Vaughn.  The early time of 8-11am seems to deter most of the riff […]

TOPPDrift Season Opener

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 […]

Berlin Klassik 2014

I can attribute the late publication of this article down to Canada’s long winter.  Those in the Canadian car community are forced to endure 5-6 months of drab, bleak, and desolate winters. All of which culminate in little to no original content within those months.  So I’ve saved a few photo sets from summer for […]

H2Oi 2014 Leftovers

The last few shots from our H20i trip consists of the multitude of visitors and random cars that came by 75th.   Most of whom stopped by to see Brian Arthus who seems to know everyone with a car in the U.S.   Including @farklefitment. @blowin_bags’s A8L @jdmodz`s BestJDM winner at First Class Fitment I’m […]
