Tucked away at the Bradley Museum in Mississauga, Euronited put on a pretty good show this past Sunday. Luckily I had enough time to grab pics, grab lunch and get back in time for the World Cup.
Oskar’s S4. Bagged on CCWs with a full interior done by InsideJob Upholstery. I’m on the fence about the heckbelende though, I haven’t decided if I like it or not.
Erik’s awesome SAAB 9-3. A damn shame, Saab, isn’t around anymore.
Not often do we post MK3s, but I think for this one, we can make an exception.
I assure you, there is a MK4 in this image.
Now on to the important stuff. The 4 (not including mine) E34′s that showed up. First is this Japanese Import Aplina B10 3.5. The owner, seen above, bought the car from BC with a little over 86K in 2010 and drove it back through the US. He’s swiftly put on 26K in the time since.
Few cars look good in retro graphics. All of the Alpina stuff is timeless. The same goes for their wheels.
How does a 25 year old cloth interior look so good? Cloth Alpina Recaros are the unicorm E34 seats, god damn, they’re gorgeous.
The full AC Schnitzer kit is actually nice when all the parts are fitted and not broken. I wish I had this entire bumper rather than just the top half of it. Even the retro side panelling is nice. So, period correct.
This early M5 was fresh off a track day. The front track tires were completely worn and the rear 888s weren’t any better. The owner also indicated some boost might be in the near future.
Lastly, this E34 touring. I had no idea it was even there. I was just able to snap a few shots as he left.
I LOVE Yas Marina Blue. And I love the M4s more, knowing they’re underating the horsepower. The 425HP F82 actually makes 460hp at the crank.
With the festivities of Eurokracy taking over the entire Canada Day weekend, we were unfortunately unable to make it to Boonies Bash 2014 at Shonnonville. Luckily our friend Lucas from FTN Auto was able to capture the sights and sounds. We’re posting pics of 3 of our good friends. Steve Van Sluewen’s E30, Mike Catell’s FC and Kristoff Hemet’s E36.

The Kruise was much less hands on this year. Last year we tried to handle it with an iron clad schedule and wound up taking a detour anyways. This year was much more relaxed. The Kruise was more enjoyable. The gorgeous weather contributed greatly. While I was able to borrow Sam’s MK5 I quickly realized, I missed my Subaru or at least having my own car. The trip took around 5 hours with only one hiccup (below).
Mauricio’s top 100 show and shine entrant MK2.
Hiccup: @thatbaggedtdi ran into a slight rear tire wear issue. Crazy camber and toe will do that to you. Luckily we all made it to Montreal with no blowouts.
Jay’s 2.7TT swapped B6 A4. Sounded exactly like a low flying plane. Which is to say annoying as hell when you’re driving beside it.
Moving west of the city has its benefits and drawbacks. The major drawback being the driving distance to Mosport and Shannonville. Using a 4.0 V8 to get there doesn’t help. I’m just unable to attend all of the events. Luckily I can just post Devo’s videos.

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.
Our second annual Eurokracy Kruise, Friday, June, 27th, 2014.
*Locations are approximated on map As with previous years, we’ll be leaving from our Start location on Friday morning. We’re leaving at 10am June 27th from Pickering. We will have 2 planned stops. One in Trenton and one in Morrisburg. Both will be at an ONRoute location. All subsequent stops will be made on a need be basis. People will need to go to the washroom, need to stretch, or switch cars etc. So expect a few stops. Our first Cruise did not require any extra stops. We did take a stupid detour which will not be occurring this year. Once we start the cruise, our progress will be posted on Facebook and Instagram. Participants should follow Facebook or instagram to gauge when we are nearing their on ramp. We will try to keep a consistent pace of around 110km/h. See you in Pickering!!
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.
A Y O G R L.
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.
The TougeTuning meet. I had zero expectations for this meet. I figured since it was very early into the season the amount of cars would be bleak. Seeing as though its been one of the longest winters in recent memories, how many cars would be ready for late April? Apparently a lot.
@NA1Danio ‘s NSX. LevelOne at its finest.
There was nothing more I wanted in high school than a blue GC coupe, with a big wing, big exhaust and gold wheels. I think I want one again.
