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.
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 [...]
Back in May, we featured what is without a doubt one of the most well executed Subarus on this side of Canada; Jason Hoang’s Varis/Voltex STI Sedan. For those who may not have seen the feature you can check it out HERE. Since the feature, Jason has pretty much enjoyed his build for the entire summer, and even went on to take Best In-Class Subaru at this year’s Driven show right here in Calgary. With the winter season upon us, Jason has now put this little gem away for storage, with big plans for the new season. Before the end [...]
As you get older and the thought of “real life” begins to set in, you may start to notice a change in interests as you “outgrow” certain hobbies and start to change daily activities in order to adapt and live for the future. Eventually, your taste in cars will broaden as you look for something a little more functional and practical to suit your everyday life, and look for a vehicle that will tackle the “real life” situations that are thrown in your direction. For those with a love and passion for cars and the car modding life however, a [...]
“All You’ve Got To Do Is Try”. This line, taken from Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness”, popularized by The Throne’s hit “Otis”, is something we can all understand and learn to apply to our daily lives. If we lived our lives without trying, how would our lives play out? One can most certainly assume and expect a life where everybody is repetitive and doing the same thing. Visualize this, and implement it to how things are done in the car game. If nobody took risks on how cars were modified by their owners, what do we end up with? [...]
With the 2012 spring/summer season slowly on the rise, we are discussing the possibility of another road trip this upcoming season. Here we decided to take a look back at some pics we snapped from our first group road trip, which was to Vancouver for the DTP 2011 Show. Have a look back at a few more pics of this crazy track prepped STI which won best of show! Enjoy the pics!
Similar, but different. Does that make any sense? Everyone has their own personal opinion on how a car should be built. Whether it is built as a show car, a track car, a street cruiser, or a functional daily driver, a persons own opinion dictates what their car will look like. Some people like a fast car with a crazy motor that looks completely stock on the outside, others like a car that is super flashy on the outside, but with minimal power mods. And some like both, doing a little bit of both, or if they’ve got tons of [...]
Its almost like summer is just getting started, the hot weather finally hit the west coast. And with going back to school, its getting harder and harder to find the time to head out and shoot. Well my buddy recently got this 2006 STI and I figured it was the perfect opportunity to drop the books for a bit and head out for some beautiful evening light. Enjoy. And the money shot.
We are pleased to bring some more content from our buddy Gawa. This time it’s Chris Chu’s slammed 2006 Subaru STI rolling on a sick set of BBS LM’s and track ready aero among many other tasteful parts. Enjoy the pics.
