With the summer slowly drawing to a close, there’s one car that comes to mind that didn’t get any exposure this season. This car is very iconic to a few of us in Calgary’s Car Scene. The car I’m talking about is Romel Tenchavez’s 1977 Toyota Celica. Hopefully next season this car will be up and running again. I’ll make sure of it.

Had a chance to stop by and check out the small Toyota/Lexus Meet at the Chinook Centre Upper Level Parking lot earlier today. Not bad of a turnout considering the rain and cold weather Mother Nature had in store for Calgary. Because of the rain I didn’t feel like catching a cold so I didn’t take too many pics but here are a few snaps I was able to take. Check ‘em out! Random shot of an illmotion crown decal on a post. LOL!
Just thought I would put up 2 picture’s of the Integra from a shoot we did a few weeks back. This shoot didn’t last to long because my car started to leak oil again. Turned out to be a bad gasket. Good new’s is since that day I haven’t leaked a drop of oil. Anyways here is the shots that Prashant took.
As most of you found out this past weekend, Speedtech Racing Development Calgary closed it’s doors for good on August 21st, 2010. As sad and depressing as this is for most of us in Calgary’s car community, we want to take this time to give thanks to the car shop that was STRD. Thank you Speedtech Racing Development for everything you did for the Calgary car scene over the years, you guys will definitely be missed. -ill.motion PS: After the jump find out what some of us here at ill.motion had to say individually. JC’s Thoughts// After seeing everything being [...]
I love track days. Nothing beats watching cars opened up to their full potential, soaking in the sounds of their exhausts as they tear down the straight. Or in the case of one RSX, the scream of it’s supercharger. There was plenty of nice cars that showed up to this track day including some very fast Corvettes and a rare Lotus Esprit. Didn’t get a chance to get a picture of every car as I was only there for few hours, but still got a few good shots. The next track day will be happening on September 23rd so if [...]
Street Culture and Auto Culture mess with each other once again! Last month a buddy told me about a project Scion xB that Rogue Status and DTA were working on. He informed me that it was getting a 2JZ Swap and a bunch of other custom modifications done to it. Here’s the end result. This Fridge must be so scary to drive!!! Looks sick though! Check the vid.
Well I was bored and decided to edit the rest of the photos from Driven Edmonton. Check ‘em out. PS: Stay tuned for news regarding an illmotion meet!!! -JC My favorite FD2 from the show. This car makes me want to build one! =P
Here are a bunch of shots from the Beyond.ca Summer Cruise that was last weekend. The drive through the mountains was a blast and all the nice cars made it that much better. I didn’t get any rolling shots as most of the trip it was only single lane. But here are some shots from the campsite where everyone stopped off for a few hours to hang out and grab a bite to eat.
Being very new to editing photos I just had to share this quick snap of Jackie Law’s “Internet Sensation”, his Honda S2000. This photo was all green and yellow before and after spending almost an hour on editing this pic I’m really happy with how it turned out and thought I’d share it with y’all. Until next time!
Ok so here is the first of the four features from our trip out west. I’ll start it off with these two random snaps from the Agenda Show we attended in Huntington Beach. Chill’n outside was the Crooks & Castles and MATIX flagship vehicles. It’s cool to see how much car culture influences so much that is so un-car related, it’s almost built into their way of life. Around 3am, while cruising around Huntington we run into Coco and his super clean EVO. I’ve come to learn in the few days i spent in the Newport/Huntington Beach area that they [...]
