This is Canada’s Premier car show. Let alone European car show. We’ve been attending Eurokracy since it’s inception and have been shown open arms by the organizers Rick, Sergio and Jesse. We definitely feel part of the Eurokracy family. So much so, they allowed us to present our award for our favourite ride on stage. While my time with the mic was botched by stage fright, perhaps I should have prepared some words before hand. We ended up awarding this 1.8T swapped MK1 below. It was super clean with an amazing swap. It just felt right picking a Mk1 too. The severe heat limited the number of photos we have. The shade of our tent was very very compelling.
Sharing the stage with Sam Dobbins and his epic food saver.
993, with Ruf front and rear bumpers. The Porsche fanboy within tells me this was the coolest car at the show.
When BagRiders bring up their own E92, you know you’re in for a great show. You hear about the LibertyWalk Auto kit as now bring played out. When is the last time you’ve seen one in person? They are an impressive piece of kit. Just because you see them online does not mean the work going into one should be downplayed.
Bronson’s 540i ripping up the track. Definitely one of the better sounding cars of the day. The best time I believe was a 15.4, not bad for a 3800~ lbs luxary yacht with an open diff and blown suspension.
Chris’ Mk5, newly christened with OZ Futuras.
Redbull gives you wings. Seems like a little too much though. #redbullhigh
The World Endurance Championship, might be the new king. Formula 1 will forever keep my interest. It has its ups and downs and the allure of the best drivers and teams is too hard to ignore. However, the WEC is starting to steer my interests elsewhere. A few things are needed for series to enter into legendary status. Ala, Group C, Group B, super tourers, or the first Turbo f1 era. Great drivers, great teams, great cars and great racing. The new WEC generation arguably rivals those great racing eras. It will be the stuff of legends, decade into the future. Heading into Le Mans, no one can accurately predict the winner of the race. Audi, Porsche and Toyota all have a legitimate chance to win. With Nissan joining the fold for 2015 and Ferrari (program is rumoured to be unveiled this Saturday) in 2016, the WEC will be impossible to ignore. AWD, RWD, V4, V6, V8, V10, gas, diesel, electric, hybrids, turbos, KERS, Ferrari, Porsche, Audi, Toyota, Chevrolet, BMW, Nissan, Rebellion, Morgan, ORECA, Ligier, Aston Martin. This is variety that you will not see on the F1 circuit. Below are the spotter guides for all 55 entries. All eyes will be glued to the 7 front runners though. My bold prediction ahead of the race has the No.7 Toyota car on top of the podium at the end.
We have two commitments in Canada FITTED and Eurokracy. These are the two events that we attend no ifs, ands or buts. Now on its 5th year, the show decided to ramp up the quality over quantity. I can’t remember another show in Toronto where the competing cars were of this caliber
Scraped.Crusaders. Favourite Ride at Fitted Lifestyle presented by Broadway Static Suspension
After much deliberation we chose the W114 owned by the mustachioed Richard C. We didn’t have certain criteria to go by. We didn’t hold prejudices against Euro, Domestic or Japanese rides. We simply chose the car that we loved, that had that je ne sais quoi.
An Old Merc, bagged on RSs coloured matched to an awesome cream interior. Finished off with blue centre caps. It’s not an extensive build. But its a build that was built with all the correct choices.
Continuing the bagged coupe theme is this awesome RX-7.
Scott had a bagged white E46 M3 last year. He now owns THE most unassuming 450hp+ car I’ve ever seen. This is phase 1 for his 135.

Mark’s freshly painted and Beebed S2k.
I didn’t spend too much time outdoors as I haven’t adjusted to the warm weather yet. However there were some great example of cars that could had easily been displayed indoors. Including that EF civic, the Teknotik EVO and Jay’s 2.7TT swapped B6 Audi.
Cars and Coffee is underway. They are now held once a month at Engineered Automotive’s shop. Siince I’ve moved to the west end, I like the new location much more it also has the added benefit of allowing people to have a look into the shop floor. Which turned out to be of much relief as the weather was chilly. I knew we were in for it when we had those heat spurts early in the year.
I think they like Porsches at EA.
What i love about C & Cs. You can see a 2CV then a few Porsches then a Ford GT.
You don’t see curves like this any more.
Hope to see you at the next one. The first Sunday of every month!
