7th Annual FITTED

FITTED is Toronto’s unofficial car show season opener.  Positioned early enough in the year for most to unveil the work that was completed over the winter months. There were a few builds I was keeping an eye on.  Including Miro’s Camaro.  I’ve seen the unfinished item on a few occasions but the fully finished unit […]

Pfaff Tuning Show and Shine BBQ

We finally got around to posting more photos from the Pfaff Tuning Show and Shine.  It took place the week before H2Oi so we were all a tad pre-occupied.  It was still a great show, with an array of different cars.  Matt Berenz did a fantastic job of organizing the entire day.  I’m certain next […]

H2Oi 2014 – BMW Meet

After last years pretty successful E30/early BMW meet, we decided to replicate the meet but on a smaller scale.  It was now 5 series oriented, since Bron and I both drive one.  We had only planned on having 10-15 cars as we were both just looking to meet other e34 owners.  But it quickly grew […]

H2Oi 2014 – Arrival

The drive down was more eventful than I had hoped for.  2 hours in, Dan and I collectively obliterated a deer carcass.  It was at that exact second I realized raising your car for the drive down is a damn good decision. I took the brunt of the deer as my bumper trim and oil […]

The E34 Gets Broadway Static Equipped.

Having ridden is an abundance of different suspensions setups, I came to realize its worth it to spend that little bit extra to purchase a better product.  Be it bouncy, harsh, too soft, or too stiff I am definitely not a fan of a poorly setup coilover system.  BC Racing was my previous choice on […]

CSCS August 11th

CSCS,  show and shine, time attack and drifting.  There are no other events locally that combine these three things.  As a person who’s attention span is very very limited ,the multiple aspects to the show are welcome.  It’s hard not to be a fan of time attack and drifting when they are witnessed in person. […]

Tokyo Autosalon Parking Lot by Tomochika Shibata

Many of the car show we’ve been to, the lot provides as much content as the main deal.  The better the show the better the lot.  The lot at the Tokyo Auto Salon should provide a few nice rides. Images are all provided by Tomochika Shibata. The Kawashima Celica. A stock Celica for comparison. Loving the […]

Tokyo Autosalon by Tomochika Shibata pt.1

We’ve been in contact with Tomochika Shibata for a few years now.  He was one of our first Japanese fans to comment on our site.  It felt awesome having some fans overseas.  He recently had the opportunity to go to this year’s Tokyo Autosalon aka the coolest car show in Japan.  So I asked him […]

#BUDGETB34TER.

Parts hoarding has commenced. I’m currently looking for preferably black E34 bumpers.  Local to the GTA.  I also have 17×8 Throwing Star Reps to trade (with cash on your end). Also willing to trade facelift grille and hood for pre-facelift. Brochure photo + PS = bonarz.  

Scraped.Crusaders. Toyota FT-1

What could have been.  I HATE the front end of the FT-1.  It looks like the Deltawing.  The front nose coming down as much as it does is just wrong.  I don’t think it works well at all.  So I hastily made a version that I think looks much better.  Huge front opening, foregoing the […]

Scraped.Crusaders’ B34TER Pt.2

The B34TER, this is the aim.  I wouldn’t want to butcher a clean chassis like this.  Thus I don’t feel bad at all ricing the E34 I bought.  Usually, those in the scene like to keep the final looks under wraps when creating a build thread, to deter others from copying.  Sometimes it makes sense, […]

ThatNager’s CPT E36 “Build”

For those that know me, they know that I am ALWAYS at shows but for some reason NO ONE has ever seen me in a car at all. For ~3 years the boys (especially Gill) have been pushing me to have a car worthy of going to shows with and most importantly, H20i. Well after […]

Iced Over.

Iced over.  Toronto was hit with a major ice storm a few days ago.  Power outages (still ongoing for some), split trees, downed power lines, slick roads and iced over cars.  I was greeted with this on Sunday morning.  A nice even coat of winter iced encasing the entire car.  The front doors were frozen […]

Season Has Scaled Down.

Its off season for us.   Not much on the docket.  Dan is working away on his Caddy, Adrian on his motor build, I’m looking for a new car,  Mauncho is shopping for items for his new ride, and a few other things in the works.  That’s about it. Nothing major and no real progress […]

Oktoberfest 2013 by Gill

This is usually the FINAL event on the Scraped.Crusaders calendar. We start taking wheels off, raising coils and/or putting our cars away entirely right around this time.  It was a small BBQ event.  Most likely the last time I’ll be seeing most of these cars until next spring.  This year it was held at Euroline […]

My Week in OCMD.

This year we decided to stay an entire week at Ocean City.  It was well worth it.  The extra days were awesome as H20i actually felt like a vacation for once.  The house we stayed at sucked though.  I swear my stuffed nose was from mold.  No big deal, most of the time was spent […]
