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 […]
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.
A few of us made it out to the Beyond.ca weekly meet at chinook this week and it was a pretty decent turn out so I had to grab the camera and snap a few pics. If you feel like attending, these are held every Wednesday if the weather is decent at the top rear parkade of Chinook Centre/Mall. There is something we do need to mention. There were a few dangerous incidents that happened last night by others. We all have the urge to do stuff like burnouts, drifts and stuff like that after meets and such, but just […]
With Driven 2012 coming up quickly, we thought it’d be a good idea to look back and see what everyone had to offer in 2010 and what we can look forward to for this year. Since Driven was skipped for us in 2011 – there has been a significant amount of time for everybody to get their whips refreshed. From new cars, to new parts, complete overhauls or tweaks to an already existing minty car, we think this will be the best Driven yet. We have a handful of fresh new faces joining us this year and it’s only a […]
words//jc.tenchavezphotos//prashant.topiwala Last Saturday a few of us from the crew went out and took some random snaps of our whips. This shoot almost didn’t happen (Thanks Punit) but with the patience of the peeps who came out we were able to get some pretty dope shots as the sun was ready to fade for the day. Shout out to Justin and Jackie T. for coming along with us. More pics after the jump! The Group Ryan’s EP3 Justin’s Type-R Punit’s Integra Jackie’s Integra Corey’s Civic JC’s XRS Prashant’s GTI
Finally got motivated to finish the damn cage this weekend….. first let me highly recommend that anyone thinking of installing a cage to strongly consider not keeping a full interior haha. Anyways here it is in all it’s glory. The cage came black and I was just gonna keep it that way but figured I’d change it up a bit. Talked to the Screamin’ boys and they recommended Calgary Powdercoating for a simple white paint job. Just over a week later this was the result. Not only were they fast but they were cheap! $100 to sandblast, prep and powder […]
Had this shot I never posted up from a couple weeks back…. while the car was still all together. Anyways, most of the interior is out, still have to pull the rest of the rear interior panels. Taking my time as these damn plastic clips and plugs are frustrating as hell! haha. Why is the interior all out you might ask….. well I always said once the car didn’t have to be driven every day that I’d throw a cage in it. I kinda chickened out and didn’t want to deal with door bars and no glove box, etc etc […]
Last year, we went for a photoshoot for Ryan’s Ep3 and I had posted it up on my FlickR. Just today, I had received a message from a talented member on DeviantART (~illustrated90) saying that he vectored the one of the photos I took of Ryan’s car. I click the link and my jaw dropped. This vector is straight up GANGSTER. I needed to post this for everyone to see. The process of vectoring. FinishedAnd of course, the original link to his work~illustrated90And his galleryGallery
Almost time to pull the car out. Dragged it out of the corner and slapped the RE’s back on in anticipation. Finally rockin’ the decal. Note my three favorite sites and my favorite drug, errr parts dealer LOL. *****VERTEX***** coming soon…..
