I’m sure many of you YYC locals have seen this car around, whether it be at the Wednesday night Beyond meets, Grey Eagle Casino meets, the illmotion Sunday School show and shine, or just out rolling on the streets. This project is a thing of beauty and a dream for many enthusiasts, and I have finally had the opportunity to shoot it. Here is Jonny’s SR20 swapped AE86: Mango juice for boost anyone?
Gonna wrap things up in the features/highlights side of things as we roll ahead with Part 4 of 2013 Re-Up series! Definitely stay tuned for Part 5 & 6 as we take a look back at Driven 2013 and Sunday School 2013! Let’s get right to it… There’s no denying the fact that the FR-S has definitely made it’s imprint on the automotive scene this past year but it’s awesome to see the new school “86” owners linking up with the old school “86” owners like we have here featuring Beniot’s FR-S and Spencer’s AE86. Peep the old school and […]
Two iconic Toyota’s, from different generations, one was the last of its kind at the end of the 80’s the other is reviving the lost art of balanced lightweight sports cars almost 20 years later. When the early concept car for what we now call the GT-86/FR-S/BR-Z first surfaced in 2007 I was instantly hooked on this car. The idea that Toyota was even considering making this sent tingles up my spine, If I have any brand loyalty its most definitely to Toyota. At 22 years old my mind was instantly flooded with endless possibilities and as time went on […]
Saturday July 20th marked approximately 5 years since my last drift event (seriously; circa 2008, DMCC days). I can’t really offer a good reason why, other than life happened. I got busy with work and eventually kind of fell out of love with photography for awhile, putting me on a bit of a hiatus over the last couple years as a photographer…but after Saturday’s event, I’m not quite sure how I managed to stay away. Being out at Stratotech brought a rush of good vibes and great memories. From seeing friends I don’t see nearly enough, to admiring the evolution […]
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 […]
Nowadays, it’s getting a little tougher to find that unique build that’s done tastefully to the point where it can be deemed as “perfect”. While that statement can definitely be argued as some of the “best builds” never see the light of day or only live on the track, the crew here at illmotion definitely do their best to bring you the features that get everyone locally and on the internet buzzing. As a matter of fact, it’s the unique builds that are featured on illmotion that stand out from the rest. None of this would be possible however, without […]
The AE86. Popularized by the Japanese Manga “Intial D”, the Toyota AE86 Corolla is probably one of the most desired cars by comic book fans, drifters and enthusiasts alike. Anyone who’s ever owned, ridden in, or come close to an 86 knows there’s just something that leaves one to wonder just what it is about the car that leaves them wanting more. Is it the car’s 50/50 balance? It’s trademark Toyota “odd looks”? Or the fact that it was considered Toyota’s last “compact” RWD sports car? Your guess is as good as ours. What happens though, when you mix a […]
Drift Posse’s Pat Cyr of Toronto, Ontario looks like he had a pretty good year competing in several 2010 drift events held by DMCC, Formula D and XDC.

I got a chance to attend Spec D’s ‘Sunday Funday’ on October 3rd. Although the clouds were covering the sun, it was still fairly warm out, and a great time was had by all. I believe it was Spec D’s last event of the year considering the snow can descend upon us at any time. Special thanks goes out to Spec D for organizing the event, and letting us in to get coverage on the event. Get out and support these guys next year by attending their events, they do not disappoint.
So yesterday evening was my first time attending the Drift Practices that is held every other Wednesday down at Race City. You guys might remember Chad Gibson’s coverage of some of the drifting from a few weeks back. I thought it’d be a good idea to head down there and see what it was all about. Enough of the babble.. I got quite a few pics. I apologize in advance to anybody who was out last night that didn’t get a shot. I did have shots of everybody, but some just didn’t turn out. I’ll get you guys next time. […]
