Scraped.Crusaders. at TOPP Drift by Gill

It felt awesome to get the first show/event under belt.  Winter needs to frickin die.  The weather was great enough to warrant only t-shirts. That made the TOPP Drift season opener even better. First and foremost we were there to watch and support Steve and his e30.

From show car to drift slut. I’m sad i won’t see this car on the road anymore, but I’m excited to see it going sideways. Expect more changes for Steve.

Maybe painting it white, wasn’t such a good idea.

Drifting is an expensive and dirty sport.  Luckily with the help of sponsors like Wheel Direct, many grassroots drivers are able to lap all day.

You might have seen Marin’s 240 in this Sylvania commercial.  Though, with more fenders.

More pics from Geoff soon.  He was able to grab more sideways shots.

Megaspeed 2014

This was our first visit to a Megaspeed/Performance World show.  I felt it was a good kickoff to show season.  Though the chilly weather outside did nothing to agree. I did see some facebook statuses at the smaller show size this year.  However for new visitors like us, we did not notice such.  What we did notice was the nice mix of hot rods, muscle cars, drag cars, imports and tuner cars.

Love me some Toyota VTEC.

The stance on this 300C was spot on.  And KJohn’s MazdaSpeed3 looked great with the flares and Boso exhaust.

I heard Dreamworks’ Turbo movie was based on this car.

Something tells me @hoowybrow won’t be needing that wax any time soon.  Natural patina at it finest.

If you don’t have time for a natural patina, just paint it on. It was however very well done.

 

Fitted 2014

There are 3 shows we never miss.  Eurokracy, H2Oi and Fitted.   We do everything that was can to help Dave put on a great show.  We will once again have a booth setup with stickers and tees on offering.  Geoff’s A4 will be featured in our booth. We are also hoping to get a few more cars into the indoor venue  The venue will take place at the Brampton Fairgrounds, and it is booth indoors and outdoors. The indoor section will be offered to the chosen and is much bigger than last year.  The registration and selection process are already underway.  LINK.

There were some complaints about the gravel last year.  However with the indoor section being that much larger this year, if your car is good enough to be inside, it probably will be.

I can’t believe this was a spray job.  I’ve seen factory finishes that look worse than this.  Rajiv, gives his approval.
