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 […]
As lucky as we are here in Canada to have the opportunity to bring in some of the most sought after vehicles from Japan and register them as a regular means of transportation, we have to admit that it is in fact a rare sight to see some of these right hand drive vehicles being driven throughout the seasons. And for the ones that we do see being driven every day of the year, well, they usually are not in the greatest condition by the time summer rolls around. To steer away from all of that though, there are some […]
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 […]
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 […]
Fresh off the heels of Giuseppe’s Nissan Skyline feature, we would like to share with you all a little video we worked on featuring Giuseppe’s RHD Monster! Enjoy! [vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/31284131 w=800&h=450]
Around 2004-05, Canadians were allowed to bring in vehicles from Japan and have them registered to drive on Canadian soil. When Canadians were given such an opportunity, cars that were once unheard of or simply dreamed about slowly started making their way from Japan. With more and more RHD vehicles being brought into Canada, cars like the Toyota Chaser and Nissan Siliva started becoming household names. One of the more popular platforms brought over from Japan definitely had to be the Nissan Skyline. With a crazy surge of RHD Japanese vehicles being brought in from Japan, what once was a […]
Another nice weather Wednesday equals another 403 Honda/Beyond.ca Chinook meet. Hopefully the weather keeps getting better. If you try to make it out, then we promise try our best to get out there each week to take pics. Who knows, maybe we’ll find cars that are worthy to be featured on the site!
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. […]
