Back in 2009, before illmotion even started, I was blessed with the opportunity to check out one of the most humble car shows I’ve ever been to, the Japanese Classic Car Show (JCCS) held in Irvine, California. There were many vintage Japanese cars on hand and it was definitely an amazing experience as I got to meet many amazing people such as Antonio Alvendia of MotorMavens. Another gentlemen I met during my trip is Benjamin Cesar Fernandez, owner of this super mint AE71 Toyota Corolla custom painted by PJ Bonifacio. Featuring a fully built 4AGE by Race Toys and a […]
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 […]
To continue our coverage of the Father’s Day show in Canmore, here is the second half of the photos as promised! Remember that this is an annual event in Canmore so 2014 will hopefully see another great group of vehicles on display in the park.
Each year in Canmore Alberta the Rolling Sculpture Car Club hosts a car show for Father’s Day. This year, on June 16th, numerous cars from the area attended to celebrate the day and filled up the town’s Centennial Park. Awards were given out to some lucky owners and funds were raised to provide lunches to school children within the Bow Vallery Area. I attended and made sure to capture some photos of the event to show the variety of vehicles that were brought out for the day. There will be a second part of coverage to follow this one, so stay […]

The start of the summer solstice was last weekend, and what better time to kick off the beginning of summer with?!? a car show and farmers market! I loved the idea of this the first time i heard of it, Kee Productions teamed up with the South Edmonton Farmers Market to bring us Edmonton Summer Fest. It was a beautiful day to be out and a bout, when I first arrived I had to go through the market area first. Sundays are a usual grocery/chore day for myself, so being able to squeeze in a car show while out accomplishing […]
When our Level One/illmotion East photographer Galen (aka Gawa) first informed us that there was a Level One GTI on the come up, we just could not wait to see what was in store for it. “DC”, the owner of this GTI, previously owned a J’s Racing-themed Honda Fit lowered on Volk RE-30s. Being a big fan of Volkswagens running air suspension (especially MK4s) and looking for something a little more on the “Classy and Comfortable” side, DC felt it was time to move on from his Honda Fit build and had his heart set on the Volkswagen MK6 GTI […]
As many of you may already know the province of Alberta faced a natural disaster with the past few days bringing major flooding in many cities and causing disruptions to many peoples lives as their homes were soaked in water and in some situations wiped out completely. With any disaster, the efforts of those who are there to ensure people are okay and things return back to normal for those affected, are the ones most appreciated. Red Cross being one of those that helps out in the toughest of situations has been a strong force in Alberta throughout this ordeal. […]
12 years ago we started our first ever Father’s Day Show & Shine. With around 30 cars in attendance, we were more than happy that people actually showed up for our event. We quickly decided this would be an annual event at our church and soon saw that every year the show was growing exponentially in size. As the show gained a reputation in our city we found that people actually looked forward to our show each year and even in a rainout, tons of show cars would show up and crowds would still gather to check it all out. […]
It was a nice sunny day on Wednesday June 15 to head up to the weekly 403 Honda/Beyond.ca meets. With the rain finally deciding to let up for a night, it was nice to get out there and check out some rides. Actually, it was a little too sunny out as you can tell by some of my pictures, and was getting hard to fight the sun and the shadows, so I gave up and went inside to eat, only to come back outside with it being cloudy again. Here are a few shots that turned out, all the rest […]
