And the show goes on!
I have one more part after this before the show coverage is all done. It’s sad that it comes and goes so quick… I apologize again that the pictures are all over the place. Blame WordPress (and maybe my genius idea to edit and upload in batches). Never again.
I will say though, that after going through all these pictures I’ve enjoyed looking at all of them. The quality of cars has gone up immensely and I truly mean that. If you do some digging to years prior, you might find me going on about how I really wanted the quality of cars to be better and that it was so lackluster in the sense that quality was so far and few between. I love, love, love that people are paying more attention to quality parts and work – at the end of the day, that is what stands out and that’s what gets you points, or awards, or recognition – whatever it is you’re looking for. If it’s not any of those, you can still assure yourself that you’ve got good quality parts with peace of mind and at the very least, you’re supporting good companies.
But I digress… Here we go
Over in the VEX booth, a familiar and clean RX7
Noel’s wicked S14 on Work VS-KF’s. He had to take his bumper off to get in here… lol
A quick shot of his engine bay up close.
Dicken’s Varis-fitted Evo X on bronze Volk TE37’s. I love this combo so much. Again, maybe I’m biased because of the Voltex wing and aero… But I don’t care lol
Saw this couple and dude ridin’ dirty around the show in his Audi R8. I’m sure he was mean-mugging me cause he caught me slippin’… Thank god the shade was covering his face. LOL
Ricky’s GTI still looking clean as ever. Still probably one of my favourite GTI’s out there. I loved all the aero additions – most usually stay with stock body panels so it’s rare to see this. Ricky also had a JDM influence on his car as well which gets bonus points in my book.
Alex’s other other other car. I’m not sure which is his daily anymore… But the bronze ZE40’s on blue look great.
Ryan’s Ferrari F355 on Meister S1R’s. Awesome combo.
Leather Recaro pole positions inside the ‘Rari
Gugliano’s Civic – nice to see it come together. I followed his build thread on Beyond for quite a long time now and it looks fantastic.
Lots of in-house work done by him and friends.
Bad ass Chevy.
An interesting site to see for sure. A bagged Lincoln… not my first choice of cars to mod, but cool nonetheless.
Matte red Miata
Joe’s FRS in the SASC booth.
More trucks I know nothing about but would drive the hell out of. Even looking at it makes me want to be ignant. Too cool.
At the entrance of Driven was the Lowcals group. 4-door R34 – a much rarer sight to see.
I call this the DUB TL.
Jason’s wrapped BRZ. I understand he did this himself – nice work.
Spoon-equipped S2000. Rare to see this nowadays – I’m not sure who the owner is today, but it hasn’t changed much since Daniel Chan had it. Nice that it’s still in good condition.
Crazy looking GT-R with some massive Tomei quad exhuast tips, Swan neck wing, and Advan GT’s.
Reminds me of Dal’s old type R. Maybe this was built off of that as inspiration?
I thoroughly enjoyed this genesis. I’m not entirely sure which flares they are – I was thinking RB – but I think it’s missing the front bumper extensions. However, this sounded and looked good.
A wicked FRS with the Blitz front bumper and Voltex gt wing. Looked great!
And another FRS with a Voltex wing and Velox splitter.
Everyone in this booth seemed to have ordered a GT wing and got it at the same time. (You’re all from Edmonton right?) haha
This IS was sick.
M3 Coupe on TE37’s
I almost didn’t get a picture of this booth because there was a gangbang of people just standing in front eating pizza. You’d think the entrance to Driven would be a good spot, but sometimes it’s not…
ANOTHER EP3 other than Ryan’s!? This one a lot simpler – bronze CE28’s and Spoon brakes.
That blue is way too nice.
Lots of clean engine work by Philip Tan and crew.
This was super simple, but very pleasing to the eyes. Face 4 brozne ZE40’s are lit. (First time I’ve ever said that, I swear).
Trung’s Voltex S2000. This area was super tight so I didn’t get too many good pics.
Super sick EK on black CCW’s from Speedtech. This thing pushes over 1000hp…
Brandon’s Evo X on Advan RS-D with Team Revere
I think this was the only 8th gen Civic there that day. Reminds me of my first year at Driven…
Jimmy’s M3 on new diamond dark gunmetal ZE40’s. Great color/wheel combo. This is still my favourite M3 body to date.
Lots of updates to Jimmy’s engine as of late… Not that I know any of it…
And ending this one here! One more to go! Stay tuned.
