fitted 2013.

Stretch & Poke hosted their 4th annual Fitted showcase this past weekend at the Brampton Fairgrounds. I had my reservations about driving the car so far (since it’s so broken at the moment), but surprisingly it made it there without too much rubbing or scraping on the 407 and 410.

Took a couple shots in the early morning while waiting for DC to come by with his bagged GTI to cruise with me to the larger LEVEL one meet up and drive to the show.

The rest of the shots I’m just gonna steal from Illmotion’s flickr since they have them all uploaded anyway. 🙂

The line up started pretty early in the morning, before the show officially opened. Caused numerous headaches for Dave and the rest of the crew no doubt when the cars were stacked two deep, with the line up all the way out onto the street. Kudos to them for getting everyone in.

There were a ton of dubs there that day, but overall, good variety to the show I think – which is what I like about the Stretch & Poke shows/meets. You get to see cars there that wouldn’t be showing at some of the other Import shows in Toronto.

Some of the attendees even drove from Quebec, like the next couple cars (they brought a bunch more tho). Just shows you how big of an event Stretch & Poke has gotten. I remember their second meet was maybe 50-100 cars max. That was like…2-3 years ago.

I have a soft spot for the MK4’s… especially Jolfs and JTIs.

Dumped cars left and right, bagged vs static.

As seen in the following picture, the line up was well down the street to the entrance of the Brampton Fairgrounds.

Another bit of personal interest, since I have a B7 Passat now…

I really liked this next shot… probably my favourite shot of the day.

And now for the members of the LEVEL one fam that attended…

I’m really feeling Justin’s new setup on the Volk SF Winnings. Don’t see those rims too often, and the fitment is nice with a meatier tire. Check the Brembos peaking out behind the spokes too. It turns out a lot of us have turned to mesh rims this year.

DC is freshly bagged for this year, and he got the LMs on JUST in time for the show (installed and aligned the day before):

Chu also just lowered his C63 this year on H&R coilovers (I think?)

The colour on Derek’s spectrum silver SSR SP1’s really pops in the bright sunlight.

The rest of us were parked inside in the vendor hall. I got placed right beside the RC track, and unfortunately, RC cars were smacking my rear driver side rim all day long. Thankfully, that one is the damaged rim (car squats too much on inclines and the fender scored the lip of the rim), and the RC cars did no damage to it. But still, that wasn’t too pleasant to watch.

Dan’s NSX was ‘unveiled’ at the show, on a set of TE37SL’s. Since then, he’s tweaked the fitment and height a bit more to his liking. Supposedly this is the first ever NSX with concave fronts on a stock body. I have no way of verifying that claim, nor do I intend to, but it looks pretty darn good.

James was posted up beside Dan, also on a set of TE37SL, and his newly painted J’s Racing wide fenders in front. Congrats to him for taking home the 1st place static award!

And last, but not least, Steve’s never changing EK with Domani front end. Also, congratulations to him for taking home best engine bay!

The main complaint I was hearing about the show was that the parking lot was way too dusty (it was a gravel lot). Cars were being covered in dust within minutes of parking. I believe Dave is already looking into another building at Brampton Fairgrounds that supposedly can hold ALL of the cars that were parked in the gravel lot, so Dave’s already on top of things for the next Fitted show/meet!
I’m too lazy to post any more pictures, so you can check out the rest of my 300+ photos from the event >>>HERE<<<



s&p: fitted.

Stretch & Poke held their season opening meet on Sunday and the turn out was wild. 400+ cars I hear. But anyway, I got there pretty late so I ended up missing a bunch of cars, but whatever.

Hands down, my favourite car that I saw at the meet was this S14:

In fact, there were several very clean looking S14’s at the meet. This following one was sitting pretty dumped on a set of refinished Work Rezax. I’m not the huge fan of Rezax for mesh wheels, but I definitely liked this car as a whole.

Similar to the previous car, is another pristine example of a clean S14 on Enkei NT03’s. I love concave NT03’s, and it certainly looks great here. I didn’t think there were that many great examples of clean S14’s around in Toronto. Boy was I wrong.

Several bagged dubs made an appearance as well. Here’s a few MK5’s in a row, all bagged.

I believe these Advans are his winter wheels… looked like it had winter rubber on it. o_o

I’m glad this one’s on legit LM’s. Too many fakes around. :\

Another bagged MK5 elsewhere  at the meet:

A few clean E30’s parked together. It was nice how every make  sort of organized their own pre-meet or something and parked together. Made for nice group shots. 🙂

Active Autowerke boosted M shoe on LM’s caught my attention.

Vinyl wrapped Amuse GT1 S2000, done by ShinzoWerks…

…along with the rest of the ShinzoWerks crew and their wrapped cars:

Look out for features on some of them (the brown CSX and the grey GS350) coming up on illmotion!

Another [potentially] clean S14 on Work VSXX… It’s gonna  look amazing (I think) once this thing gets painted and all.

Round up this post with another favourite of mine… I think the Weds Bazreia’s look a lot better than the black on black CCW’s that were on it last season.

Oh.. and you can find the rest of my pictures on my flickr >>>here<<<
