This was my first time attending June Jitterbug but I can tell you this definitely will not be my last. The warm sunny weather, The drive up on the highway littered with slammed dubs and even parking in Firemens park. Everything was perfect. There were a lot of quality cars there that caught my attention. Between being distracted by staring at cars, talking to the owners and walking around with friends I managed to take some photos every now and then. After all, there is nothing better than everyone getting together enjoying what we all enjoy most.
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.
While we had great fun on the Kruise, the photos didn’t turn out as well as I had liked. The few shots I DID take ended up blurry. Luckily Preet was there to tighten the slack.
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
It must have been the weather or something. We usually have 2-3 photographers at each event. The heat was just killer that day, I guess. Luckily for us, Tylyr stepped up to the plate. Tyler Lenc has been in contact with us for a while now. His photography has really gotten better as of late, so we’re happy to post these pics.
Mk2 or Mk1? ‘Tis a quandary. Lu’s bagged TT. Manolo’s new bruiser.
Spring Fling this year was bigger than we anticipated. I do not remember the last time the venue filled up so quickly. Though, the weather forecast helped. I think its about time a new venue is used. Photos by David Morgan.
I for one felt my stock E34 was better suited across the street. Since I had the car straight piped the day before, a few ricer flybys were in store…..worth. The rest of the crew was relegated to the far grass as Adrian’s newly turbo’d Mk2 was acting up.
Not often do you see this big of a generation gap at one event. I’m not sure I can chose between the two.
I might be slightly biased, but Mauricio’s Mk2 is still my favourite.
Mk3 on reverse mounted RSIIs. Such a different look to my old set.
Of course I’m posting the only e34 from Spring Fling.
*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!!
My 540i was purchased with a full custom exhaust. For whatever the previous owner though 2 Cherrybomb glasspacks would have a great muffler. They do not. They’re rusted and unsightly. So I did what any guy would do and went full straight pipe (cats are still there though). A quick stop at GT Custom and she was done. I’ve always wanted a turbo, so I can let that BOV go off at every opportunity. A few seconds after driving around in the straight piped 540i, I’m now about that V8 life.
T his is Bronson’s car not my B34TER. Chris’ OZ were test fitted for shits and giggles. Giggles turned into bonarz. Also shown is a LS, 5spd swapped Belair…glorious.
We always make it out to Spring Fling. I feel the show is out growing its Hansa Haus location. The lot filled up way earlier than it usually does. And with most of our guys showing up late, they were forced to the grass behind the building. :(
Pfaff Tuning’s 911 Targa. I LOVE the basket handle. Classic 911 on Fuchs in bright red. There are few greater combinations.
Scott’s M135. We’ll be needing a wide angle lens to shoot this thing in the future
It has been years since I have been to a Fitted event…in fact, it was Stretch and Poke the last time I went.
This year I finally had a free day, and could not wait to check out how much the show has grown. Seeing the incredible quality of cars present, booths, music and food available, this things has come such a long way since that meet at Humber Park.
The main reason to visit a show like this, the variety.
This thing caught my eye almost immediately. Nothing crazy, just simply, and damn cool!
Something about a bagged RX7 would have a lot of people scratching their heads…me, well…you know how I feel about bags.
Natalia’s car had me rolling with the under glow…apparently it’s back…seems legit.
Gerald’s Imola Stage 3.
Things thing just caught all our hearts. And pulled out a well deserved win.
The TougeTuningmeet. 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.
