Every car has that one modification that’s necessary to make it mildly ‘cool’, the first thing you’d do to it before taking it out to a cars and coffee event. The GT86 needs larger wheels to fix the sunken-boat fitment, an S-Chassis needs coilovers and some sort of ‘JDM’ plush toy, and so on. But what about when EVERY one of that certain car has the same entry level mods? Cheap wheels and Canadian tire exhaust are common sight these days, so when someone steps outside the box and brings a new look to the table, it’s a welcome sight- […]
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 […]
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.
With the season winding down and the threat of snow looming, the weekly Wednesday night 403 Honda/Beyond.ca meets are getting quieter and quieter. Not many people show up this time of year due to it getting dark out earlier, and getting cold out. But a few people still go. Took my camera and tripod with me to possibly get some practice on something that I’ve been dreading doing because of my epic failures on previous attempts: low light photography. I guess my pics came out ok, was messing with the settings all over the place, and got some results that […]
Hi everyone! My name is Aldrich and I’ve been invited to contribute to the site. I run my own blog as well (http://aldrichevangelista.blogspot.com), but I will try my best to post quality stuff and promise not to bore you. I’ve decided to make this a full introduction with my trip down memory lane, so you know where I’m coming from and why I will post what I will. I’ve been in this Calgary car scene for about 14 years now (before some of the illMotion members were legally driving), and I’ve seen a lot of changes in it. Shops and teams […]
I was itching to shoot something this evening and I didn’t know where to go or which car to shoot either. I called up JC and asked him and next thing you know, we’re out cruising around ready to shoot Aldrich’s WRX. We haven’t officially shot it before but here it is in all its glory. I heart Subies For high res photos and some extra shots, you can visit my photostreamAldrich’s WRX
