Moving along with Part 3 of our Re-Up 2013 series highlighting a car from Edmonton and the rest coming out of Toronto courtesy of our illmotion East/Level One representative and photographer Galen Wan aka GAWA, and photographer Alex Lu. Let’s take a look at part 3! Something we definitely look for when it comes to the cars we showcase here on illmotion is the originality and uniqueness of the platform that the owner decides to build upon. A good example of keeping things different yet still turning heads is Jules and her Ford Focus ZX5. iM Highlight: Jules Cragg’s Ford […]
When you’re operating one of THEE go to tuner shops out in Toronto, what do you drive? For Peter of Nextmod, the answer is pretty straight forward and to the point: A Nissan GT-R. Considering the GT-R is still fairly new, this certainly did not stop the aftermarket from supporting GT-R owners like Peter and the hunger for more performance, and inevitably more power. Being exposed to some of the biggest names in aftermarket performance on a 9 to 5 basis, Peter definitely had the upper hand when it came to building his GT-R and it really shows in all […]
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.
Another week has gone by, and that means another edition of the weekly 403 Honda/Beyond.ca Meet! Its nice to see these meets getting busier and busier as the weeks go by and the weather starts cooperating. Its nice to see cars that come every week, and see how they progress as the season goes by. Its also been great in the fact that the cars are getting more and more diverse. Here’s a quick taste of some of the cars that were out this week, for lots more shots, check out the set on our Flickr stream: HERE Make sure […]
You can almost feel it in the air. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and the cars that have been hiding are starting to come out. The season is almost upon us, and for a handful of people, it already has. And that means the 403 Honda/Beyond.ca weekly meets are starting to get into full swing. I’ve been to a few already, and they’ve been starting to get busier and busier. Here are a few snaps I took that somewhat darker night, then it got cold, so I put the camera away: For more shots, check […]
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 […]
Another feature courtesy of our homie Galen Wan (aka GAWA Photo), we have Yau’s R32 GTR coming out of Toronto, Ontario. Yau’s BNR32 takes it a step further from his peers by wrapping the whole car in Carbon Fiber Vinyl Wrap. What also stands out on Yau’s GT-R are the authentic Nismo N1 pieces such as the front bumper, side skirts and wing lip. Adding to the exterior appeal of this R32 are a set of green Volk TE-37s rocking an amazing 18×10.5 with a +15 offset all around. On the performance side of things, Yau’s GT-R sports a Jun […]
The GT-R has been Nissan’s flagship performance car since it’s debut in 1969. Because of Nissan’s commitment to performance, the GT-R badge has become a worldwide icon. As a car nut, I absolutely love the GT-Rs, old and new. That is why I jumped on the occasion to shoot a local car guy’s GT-R, not once but, twice. I have a confession to make. The first time I shot *B-TOWN*’s GT-R, the pictures were horrendous for two reasons: One, it was the first time I had seen an R35 GT-R in person. One that I could touch, in a non-perverted […]
We aren’t done yet. We all have our own perspective on the show and so we’ll just keep posting until we’ve exhausted our supply. It never hurts to see more pictures 😀 My favourite booth of the night – I swear I was in J’s Racing/Voltex heaven. I think I have GT wing fever. Onto the pics!
The illmotion Dudes headed out to Vancouver, BC on July 16, 2011 at the Rocky Mountaineer Station to attend the DTP Auto Show presented by Yokohama Tires. The caliber of cars that were present at the show (and the parking lot) just left everybody from the crew speechless. Vancouver’s scene brought everything to the table from highly modified sport compacts and even a few modified luxury vehicles. Aside from the rain, the Vancouver DTP Auto Show was unlike anything we’ve seen in Calgary and it was good to see how other car enthusiasts in Canada are reppin’ for their city. […]
