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.

Subaru X Volkswagen X MDMVisuals Update

It’s been a while since we’ve posted Mike’s Subaru swapped Karmann Ghia.  LINK.  He was recently able to touch up his paint, add a few leather bits and button up a couple more things.  it isn’t up and running just yet, but when that does happen, we’ll be sure to post the videos.

Those leather straps look MONEY.

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

VAG EVENT 2013

Winter needs to end asap.  This video of VAG Event 2013 brings us back to the middle of show season.  This is one of the best videos I’ve seen that captures the ambiance and atmosphere of a car show.

Subaru X Volkswagen X MDMVisuals

Mike’s taken his time to do things right.  It looks like his Subaru powered Ghia is really close to ticking over for the first time.  Fingers crossed.

Vettel wasn’t the only recent champion.   Sebastien Ogier picked up his first WRC title.  Everyone knew he had the talent.  The surprise came in the form of the winning manufacturer.  Not often does any team in any series win outright in their first full season.  Volkswagen did just that.  The field is thinned out, yes, but I won’t take away any credit. Citroen and Ford should have had enough engineering and resources from a decade plus of rallying to hold of VW.  Icing on the cake for Ogier, saw him take the fight to Loeb and beat him during his small 4 rally campaign.  2 wins and two 2nds for Ogier while Loeb had 2 wins a 2nd and a retirement.   Ogier also beat Loeb at the Monaco Porsche Supercup race, which was won by Sean Edwards.  I can’t see anyone catching up to Ogier next year.  Expect a VW whitewash.

 

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 mobbin up and down the strip, even before the crowds showed up on Thursday.  I went through AT LEAST a full tank while on the strip.  500-600kms+ up and down coastal.  Got damn.

By the time the weekend rolled around I had managed to pick up a nail on my front left tire.  It wasn’t leaking air, so I thought its better if I just leave it alone.  Pulling up to the Outkasts meet, it proved otherwise.  The nail popped out.  Quick call to Dan and he was there with a jack.  We did need some spare wood to get the car up though.  With the flat tire in hand we went to a local shop to get it patched. These two beauts were outside.

The Wagon GTG was hands down the most subdued meet of the week.  It was also made up of about 90% wagons which is nice.  Ussually a meet means, 10-15 apt cars then 50 random cars.

Taphouse was bangin all week.  Didn’t matter the time or weather.  It was packed.  Im not even sure whats meets were there.  We just showed up.

Governors Club meet.  It was held on the morning of the actual show.  Tbh, I didn’t even know it was going down, we just stopped at the convention centre because there was a pretty big crowd.

Scraped Crusaders | H2Oi 2013

As seen by Matt.

Enjoyed this year a lot more and didn’t shoot as much, but still got enough to throw together a little video…hope everyone enjoys.

Cheers.

Disclaimer*   Mauncho is drunk as fuck at the beginning of the video.  It was taken 10 seconds after changing his clothes on my rear seats.  Contemplated burning those seats.

Golden Showers.

IMG_4026 We were able to set up a few shoot with Matt over the week.  This was our first one.  Think it’s safe to say we started with the best. Us – “You sure you want to do this?” Anthony – “Ya” Us – “You should probably put your windows up” Anthony – “they don’t go up” Not verbatim, but that’s pretty much how we prepared for the fountain shots.  Sometimes you just do what you have to, to get that shot.  Glad Matt was there, as I forgot to take photos of this.

It’s a rarity for myself to be this attracted to old VAG content at H20i.  It’s dat character.  We’re glad to have met you Anthony, see you next year.   IMG_3962IMG_3960
