Well this might be my first post this year, I’m sorry I haven’t been around but it’s been a very busy year for me, personally. But, that’s not going to keep me from attending the show and road trip that I look forward to every summer.
That’s right, me and some of the krew are heading south from our cushy spot in Ontario, to see what the East Coast has brought out this year. I can’t wait. If you’re attending, I’ll see you Sunday, maybe.
On my way to Mini Moto Lab this Sunday, I genuinely had no idea what to expect. All I knew of the Honda Ruckus were a couple shots I saw in an Import Tuner when they had interviewed the owner of Gallery Fresh. When I walked up, I was pleasantly surprised to see about 2 dozen Rucks all lined up outside the shop… and I dove right in!
Last Saturday the Brampton Fairgrounds played host to the 2014 Fitted Lifestyle event- and it was hands down it was the best yet! This 5th installment of Fitted brought cars from all over Ontario, Quebec, and New York. With separate categories for air and static, the competition was fierce, and it would be tough for anyone to not find something they liked. Whether you prefer Euros, Japanese, or domestic, there was an entry to suit your taste. A great new addition this year was the moto/Rukus area, that we suspect will grow quickly with Mini-Moto Lab up and running now, and the resurgence of the Cafe Racer style.
You guys have all heard by now, an icon has fallen. The first time I heard about it, I refused to believe it. Unfortunately it’s true. Paul Walker, for many in our generation, brought light to a culture that may have stayed underground if it weren’t for his movies and enthusiasm for all things automotive. That’s not all, he’s given more to charity in his short time here than most people will ever give in a life time…..
