#lifewithjson – Year in Review Part 3/4

And along came part 3!

The illmotion Sunday School Show & Shine was a huge hit again this year. It never ceases to amaze me just how many good quality cars are out there that don’t ever show their face. YYC has a lot to offer and you get to see most, if not all of it all on one day during this show. The best thing about this show is that it doesn’t cost $50 to SHOW your car and it doesn’t cost $20 to SEE the cars. It’s $5 per entry to show and free admission. The rest of the day is just a good time – this is really what it’s about and that’s why so many people come out to it.

Days and/or nights before, there are tons of people just getting their cars ready and cleaning up for this day. I love the anticipation build up and finally getting to see all the goodies.

The best thing about the show is that EVERY type of car is welcome and gladly attends. People love to see these types of cars outside of their element and you certainly don’t get that at Driven… Just sayin’

The crew that manned the booth that day. Busy busy busy.

Even the crew from BC came down to the event. Hard hitters…

Trung’s S2000 from Edmonton even joined in. I’m tellin’ ya, it’s too good of a show to miss for you local peeps…

We shot Terence’s BRZ as well later that summer…

Supercharged in all its glory

And of course the fill up shot.

Another one of the more memorable highlights this year was the opportunity for me to shoot Bill and Mario’s Ford Focus’s for Performance Ford Magazine. That day also came together perfectly and the shots turned out great with the red and yellow cars on the green and blue landscape. Nothing beats color.

JC’s car – I’m pretty sure he was on his phone off to the side. Looks like his car is in a dreamy field of unicorns and butterflies in this pic…

Derrick also got his hands on a level ONE decal… It was nice to add a new addition to the family. Well deserved too – he recently just finished dropping a K20 in there by himself… It probably took him longer to put on this sticker than to swap the engine for some reason…

And a lot of tape…

It was not the last we were going to get to see of Nick, nor of Trung’s S2000 because this time they were together!

IMG_4293 copy

Perfect combo?

IMG_4300 copy

And this time, we were shooting LRD VDR

In all its glory.

Another one of my favourites from this year…

And it was so long before I got anything new for the FRS, so Arif was kind enough to hook me up with the JDM frameless rearview mirror.

The FRS was back into JC’s garage again for a little more treatment…

I decided to get the TOM’S tail lights because I hate the stock tail lights so much!

IMG_4463 copy

Full red on black is best.

IMG_4502 copy

In no time, they were on and instantly my car looked 100x better.

Then at long last I got the chance to shoot Jimmy’s Datsun 240Z. The color and condition of this car was amazing – not to mention the Work CR01’s in that custom finish

Jimmy’s LS430 also sitting out front…

One of the perks about shooting these cars is I get to get some shot gun rides in them. I don’t care if I don’t get to drive them, but the ride is enough for me.

Then we decided to do a little get together with Ryan and his EP3 again since he changed his wheels for the 100th time.

IMG_4878 copy

IMG_4919 copy

Oh would you look at that… JC on his phone.

IMG_4921 copy

This time, Ryan had mag blue TE37’s to change up the look.

Three down, one more to go!
