World of Wheels 2015

It was a lazy Sunday today and there wasn’t much to do… I had a 2AM shift this morning at work for about an hour and then I went back home and crashed until 10AM again. We were debating going to World of Wheels when I changed my mind last minute and we decided to go to Village Ice Cream instead. While we were eating, Jimmy messaged me and told me he had some tickets. We were literally a few blocks away but I didn’t have my camera, so we finished up, drove all the way back home to grab it and then headed back to the BMO center to check it out. (Thanks Jimmy!)

I’ll admit that this was my first time going to World of Wheels – I was never really interested because it was more of a classic/muscle/bro truck scene – not that there’s anything wrong with it, but it just never made me want to go out and check it out. I totally love checking out all the other cars, I just don’t know much about them since it’s totally out of my “comfort zone”, if you will. These cars are in a totally different class than the ones I’m used to; these are older cars from before I was even born and they look better than cars that drove off the lot yesterday. They’re cars that have thousands of blood, sweat, tears, money and time poured into them, and while I can’t pick them out as easy I could in the usual scene I’m into, I can appreciate them just as much, if not more.

I won’t have much for commentary, but I did take shots of cars that interested me or even when I had the chance. I will say that this show was a damn tornado of people left, right, and center. It was tough enough to just move around and navigate, let alone get some good shots. Lots of times, I had to stand to the side to wait for crowds to pass before I could sneak in and get one good shot in a hurry. As some of you know, that’s my pet peeve at car shows: people standing around getting in the way of people that really care to look at the car… Anyway, there’s a decent amount of pictures here to give you a taste of what the show was like. Was it a good show? It was decent. Would I go again? Probably not… With that said, it was good to check out something completely out of my element!

This one was bad ass. I know absolutely nothing about it but I do know I would need a ladder to get in and once I was in, I would drive the fuck over everything. Is that ignorant? lol

And one last one was this aired out Chevy truck. I loved that the rust areas were all there too… Gave it character.

That’s the end for me! All in all – good show! Hopefully that keeps you guys entertained for a little while.
