With Driven 2013 now over a week behind us, we may look at some of the finer details of what was brought out and wrap up our coverage of the event. To view pictures that weren’t included in Parts 1, 2, 3, & 4 visit out Flickr page HERE. By looking at the finer details we are able to see the good that all our supporters help us achieve at every event. This year, just as the previous two, we supported the Alberta Childrens Hospital Foundation. All proceeds from the sale of our merchandise, which totaled just under $1000.00, will [...]
To add to our coverage of Driven 2013, here are some photos from a little earlier. The day of the show we arrived well before the starting time of 1, as there was still much to do. After making sure the cars were ready I then wandered the floor and took some pictures before the crowds started coming in. The lighting wasn’t the best at this time but I had a great chance to see what was present and not have to worry about shots being blocked. The car under wraps above is the Maserati from ZR, as seen in [...]
Another round of pictures of our Driven 2013 coverage. More pics and a video will be coming. But for now here is part 3….
Gonna keep things moving with Part 2 of our iM Event Coverage for Driven 2013. We’re not even halfway there with the pictures taken from this day so be sure to stay tuned for much more during the week! With over hundreds in attendance it was definitely quite the task to be able to get coverage of everything so major props to our photographers Corey & Prashant for taking as many photos as they did. Anyways, we hope you enjoy more from Driven! Here’s Part 2…
To “officially” kick start the 2013 season, Driven made it’s way to the Olympic Oval in Calgary. A little earlier than the previous year, this certainly did not stop everybody from getting their cars ready, some even just MINUTES before the end of roll-in and set up. With over 250 cars coming together under one roof, Driven continues to get better every year as owners/enthusiasts just know that it is the perfect opportunity to showcase what he/she has been hiding over the course of the winter. With that, the quality factor continues to improve as well as participants step it [...]
As lucky as we are here in Canada to have the opportunity to bring in some of the most sought after vehicles from Japan and register them as a regular means of transportation, we have to admit that it is in fact a rare sight to see some of these right hand drive vehicles being driven throughout the seasons. And for the ones that we do see being driven every day of the year, well, they usually are not in the greatest condition by the time summer rolls around. To steer away from all of that though, there are some [...]
May 4th, 2013 was 780Tuners’ Season Opener in Edmonton Alberta. Cars and bikes of all makes, models, and years were brought to the United Cycle parking lot as a way to celebrate the start of summer and show off what had been done over the winter months. Our good friend Bill of the UCCC made the trip up to participate, see some friends in our neighboring city, and of course check out the other vehicles on display! A raffle was held and merchandise was available to purchase, so as to raise money for the Edmonton Humane Society. By the end [...]
May 5th, 2013 marked the 2013 Volkswagen Close To Home Show & Shine hosted by CLUB VEE DUB at Calgary’s Northeast Volkswagen Dealer, Fifth Avenue Auto Haus. With the weather being more than stellar for Volkswagen owners and enthusiasts to show off their builds, the turn out was quite impressive as new and classic Volkswagens filled the Fifth Avenue Auto Haus lot throughout the day. The Close to Home Show & Shine had something for everyone as music, contests, food etc. was on hand to keep participants and spectators busy. A few of us from the crew managed to grab [...]
Now that the summer temps have finally arrived most of the crew got together this past weekend for a small BBQ at Jackie’s new shop, Zero Limit. Some of us hadn’t been to the shop yet so it was cool to finally be able to check it out in person. Shop has tons of space and lots of new equipment, he’s got a pretty sweet setup going for himself. I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more hanging out at the shop in the future. Anyways onto some pics! The boss man parked front and center looking as good as ever. [...]
It was a gorgeous night out for the last 403 Honda/Beyond.ca at Chinook, and that meant a really awesome turnout, the best turnout we’ve seen all season. Hopefully the meets stay as busy as they have been, if not busier! Here’s a few of the many shots I took. To see the rest, check out the set on our Flickr stream: HERE And for my buddy Aldo, I know where you hide your snacks now… in your bumper. Make sure to come on down and hang out the next meet at Chinook on May 1st, 2013.
