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!
The entrance to the gongshow…
The actual stunt car from Fargo.
Paint is immaculate on every single one of the cars… Love it.
Supercharged FRS. It was pretty much stock other than the supercharger, strut bar and lug nuts from what I could see…
Those side steps are sick.
This was a sick bike.
A beautiful new Corvette from Davenport on some gold HRE’s.
Superchargers on superchargers
A super clean GTI aired out on BBS’s in the Compact Tuning Lab
Up close shot of the BBS’s tucked and how it fits under the wheel well in the mirror.
A sick new GS F-sport on air
The accuair e-level set up in the corner of the trunk
The sweet tank set up.
Probably my favourite of the show was this A4 wagon aired out. The red was beauty.
An R32 with a massive turbo.
A crazy creme coloured 1979 Mercury Coupe with an LS swap. Sweet.
A very clean Camaro with an awesome shade of blue…
And also with an LS swap.
This thing was massive. I couldn’t get a side shot of it because the crowd just never cleared lol
A sick slammed Mercury with custom details all over. That hood and front grill…
Laid out. This shot would’ve been better without the bars and that wannabe pinup girl posing.
Super clean interior. Probably have to drive while wearing a garbage bag or something haha
A sick Ford model A
Over in the corner was VEX’s booth with two GTR’s up front. Diana and I joked about finally being in familiar territory LOL
Jimmy’s 240Z still looking as clean as ever since the last time I shot it…
Giuseppe’s Skyline also joined the VEX booth. His newest addition (canards) was also on for the show…
A rear quarter shot. That tip though
Another GTR ending one part of the VEX booth
A supercharged BRZ on the other side
Super clean. I need one in my life…
Another favourite was this Silvia with two sets of wheels and a 2JZ swap… Love those bronze TE’s.
Opposite of that was another clean RX7 – hard to come across these lately…
The back ends of the GTR’s
Raphael hanging off the tow hook of Giuseppe’s Skyline
Can’t forget about the Rockey Bunny spoiler.
Jimmy’s WORK Meister CR’s
Some bro trucks for you guys
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
Crazy suspension set up
Bags! Everything was on bags in this show it seemed lol
A crazy ass rod
This was probably the cleanest car there. It shined like no tomorrow…
The engine bay was SPOTLESS. It was like it was put together and then never driven.
Rear tank set up with hard lines.
Army tanks are cool too
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.
