This past weekend (February 21-23, 2014) marked the 48th Annual World of Wheels in Calgary, Alberta. The World of Wheels show heralds many vintage classic and domestic vehicles that we all know and love, and also has it’s fair share of imports which we are accustom to seeing at shows such as Driven. One of the main reasons we love attending the World of Wheels however, is the fact that it is one of those shows that you gain more and more of an appreciation for every year that you attend. The reasoning behind this is because you get a […]
When you are new to anything and everything about car modding, you start off with little things like wheels and tires and the addiction goes from there. Over time, you begin to develop a certain style of your own and do things your way. When you’re a “veteran”, if you will, in the car game, one thing will always remain the same. The one thing that every tuner has in common and yearns to achieve is a build that will leave a lasting impression on the car scene for generations to come, a timeless build that never gets old and […]

After a couple days break we’re going to keep rolling through our Tokyo Auto Salon coverage. Today we’re going to take a look at a couple of the more popular booths at the show. Starting off with the Rays booth featuring Volk’s new 20″ TE-37 application and their brand new wheel, the ZE-40. Next up we have Tommy Kaira showing off their R8, Prius and IS among other… And Varis with their crazy aggressive aero on display And we’ll finish off today with Top Secret…. Will have one more TAS post later this week, stay tuned!
Going to concentrate today’s pictures on the Hondas of the Tokyo Auto Salon. We have several different interpretations of the new Honda Fit, Honda’s new NSX-GT, Spoon Sports and their wacky ‘open air’ hardtop cover and the Top Fuel time attack S2k among the usual Honda show participants. As we posted on our Facebook page last night please post up a comment if you really want to see anything specific from the show and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
For the large majority of us none of the cars pictured below will ever reside in our garages, however please bookmark this page for when you hit it big or win the lottery. Widebody Lambos, Porsches with giant GT wings and slammed Ferrari’s galore, the TAS exotics… More coverage coming again tomorrow…. and swing over to Fitted Lifestyles HERE for their take on the Tokyo Auto Salon so far.
As promised last week we are proud to be able to once again bring you, our readers, exclusive coverage ‘overnight from Japan’ of this years Tokyo Auto Salon. For today we’ll start with just a small portion of one of the show halls where some of the best JDM tuners and auto manufacturers were set up… Ben Sopra, Jun, Rockey Bunny, Liberty Walk and Work Wheels to name a few. From what we’ve seen so far and similar to last year, the show floor is dominated by both the iconic GTR and the popular 86/BRZ. We literally have hundreds of […]
TAS 2014 is upon us and illmotion is once again teaming up with our friends over at Fitted Lifestyle (formly Strech & Poke) to bring you exclusive content from Japan care of Galen Wan. TAS coverage will by underway in the coming days but to hold you over until then we have some pictures from RWB’s car meet that took place last night in Roppongi. Ever since RWB made its first appearance on North American soil back at SEMA 2011 the popularity of Nakai-San’s crazy widebody works of art have exploded all over the internet. We for one can’t get […]
Wrapping up our 2013 Re-Up Series with the hottest (literally) show of the year, the illmotion Sunday School Show & Shine. This show gets bigger and bigger every year and none of this would be possible without the support of local tuning shops in Calgary and the support we get from all of you! This was without a doubt one of the most memorable Sunday Schools we’ve hosted as we raised an amazing $3000.00 in support of the Lupus Society of Alberta, in loving memory of Lanein Reynoso; one of our largest donations thus far! Definitely stay tuned this year […]
In Part 5 of our Re-Up 2013 Series we would like to bring back Driven 2013. In 2013, we did a 5-part feature so let’s have a look at parts 1-5, and the video made by none other than illmotion’s own Corey O’Hara! Let’s take a trip back to Driven 2013! Instead of saving the video for last like we usually do, we’ll start this Driven 2013 Re-Up off with the video! 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 […]
