WTF Friday: Flippin out at Burnside

3

Saw this over on via . For those of you who have never been in a skate park skateboarders often give us (BMX riders) a hard time for riding out bikes in the park claiming that we damage the hell out of them. At times the arguments can get pretty heated and sometimes even come to blows. However what happened at a few days ago is a first, and the fact that the owner of this vehicle was kicking out BMX riders just minutes before this makes it all that much sweeter. Story goes like this:

“about a half hour before this happened the guy driving was telling that bikes were not allowed in the park.Pretty funny! Also i guess after the wreck he just crawled out of the car and cracked open a cold one.”

I still, patiently, waiting on stickers, and with the way the weather is looking they will probably be here first snow fall (hope not). Nat from and I are working on the final details for her photographer feature so that should be up soon I swear.

As for events I am hoping to make it out to an e30 meet on Sunday but I have a Wedding Saturday night and you know how that goes. I’ve got a few things in mind for next week though so stay tuned.

Absolutely Stuffed

1

I thought I posted this car before after I saw it on blog but it doesn’t seem as though I did, and if I did it’s worth looking at again. Whenever you think that you might not be able to go lower refer to this post. This car is stuffed beyond belief and the front bumper still looks minty fresh, let’s all take notes shall we?

This Toyota Aristo is sitting on coil-overs not bags and the bolt pattern has been converted to 5×120 to fit BMW wheels. It also has a 2JZ under the hood with some tuning and increased boost.

Note the lack of visible  damage

Muthaf*cka can you buy that?

I saw these wheels for sale on and even though at an asking price fo $2300 they are worth what I sold my entire e30 for I really think someone without my shoe string budget should scoop up these because they are absolutely stunning. The specs are as follows:

Freshly refinished
-15X8 / 15X9 BBS RM’s
-2″ Schmidt lips front and 3″ Schmidt lips in the rear
-Polished ¼ height caps with polished BBS logo’s (original caps also included).
-Spare set of 2″ lips can be installed at a cost to the buyer or purchased for an additional $200
-At 4×100 these could fit quite a few vehicles, e30s, civics, vdubs….

The color looks kind of root beer esque

Readers Ride: Faisal’s VR6 MK3

2

Black VW owners love Grosirbajuanak;  Dan sent in his Black GLX not too long ago and now I am posting pictures of Faisal’s VR6 which I have been sitting on for a little bit. This actually isn’t the first time Faisal’s ride has been posted on Grosirbajuanak and it won’t be the last. This is however the first time I am posting pictures of Faisal’s ride that he has sent in. Jonny law recently pulled Faisal’s plates for being too low but he has plans to come back harder next year with a winter makeover, once his cars done expect it to be sick and expect a feature.

Theme Tuesdays: Sick S2000s

3

The concept of theme Tuesdays here on Grosirbajuanak is simple, every Tuesday I pick a theme and post a collection of vehicles with that theme that meet the stance criteria (modified suspension that suit the vehicles intent). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: Sick S2000s

Honda’s high revving rear wheel drive roadster is this weeks Theme Tuesday vehicle. It’s crazy to think that this car was produced for 10 years, I remember when these came out…

The birth of a stanceoholic gear head

2

It’s Thanksgiving holiday Monday here in Canada and unlike most people I didn’t spend it relaxing in a warm house eating a Turkey dinner and watching football, instead I spent it in my garage doing a little maintenance and troubleshooting on my car. This isn’t the first holiday Monday I have spent in the garage working on my car while people drive by to go spend time with their families and it sure won’t be the last. As I was working my mind started drifting to how exactly did this happen to me?

My story starts off pretty young; like most boys I always had an interest in car that comes with birth, I also had a lot of hot wheels remote control cars, and my dad got me my first model kit at a pretty young age. This lead to me spending a lot of summer weekends watching what has now become the on Spike TV (TNN back in the day) watching Hot Rod TV, and whatever the truck show was at the time and incorporating those ideas into my models.

Once I entered high school my car obsession basically doubled. Luck for me had one of the best equipped auto shops in the Peel Region and probably the best auto teacher. Mr Dinner, or Dinner, as we called him was basically a god send to anyone who has a slight interest in working on and building cars.

Dinner quickly figured out that the best way to keep kids interested in the Transportation Technologies course was to let them do what they want and keep the standard boring tests and lectures to a bare minimum. In no time I was quickly lowering shop cars anyway possible, cutting springs, heating springs, or just straight up removing them (most of these cars never saw the road), I also put together a as well.

Another thing that really helped keep Auto students (and the entire school) interested in the course was the Fiero/Countach kit car. Most kids born in the 80s male or female have had a brush with a Countach either via poster, model car, die-cast car, or barbie power wheels.

The project was started a year before I was able to take autoshop

Even if you don’t like the idea behind a Fiero parading around as a Lambo unless you have personally been involved in the build of one you can’t really imagine how much work actually goes into them. It’s not quite as simple as slapping a body on the frame painting it and calling it a day, frames needs to be extended, hinges relocated/modified/ and adapted and body panels need to be worked and reworked.  It’s nothing like a model.

I cam e in somewhere around here

Having an opportunity to work on a kit at such a young age was more than enough incentive to keep me in auto shop and once I got my own car I ended up taking auto more than I actually need credits for. Instead of skipping school to go burn j’s at the local spot I would skip law to go to auto.

This was before swing up door kits were availible everywhere

My high school shop experience was so good that once I had my e30 I went back to the shop a few times after I graduated to do a little more work to it. How many people return to high school after their graduating year with intentions other than to burn it down?

While my high school experience in auto shop didn’t lead me to the automotive industry it did help me become the enthusiast I am today. The same enthusiast who will never be able to drive a stock car or leave well enough alone on a Thanksgiving Monday.

Rolling Experiments Part 1

Rolling Experiments Part 1

Went out with the Stance Is  Everything staff  photographers, aka my friend Keven and my girlfriend, and we tried some rolling  shots for the first time. We were inspired so we set out and find a remote area of the suburbs of Mississauga and got down to work. I wish we had a fourth  person  because a picture of  how we were doing it would have been  pretty amusing. Let’s  just say that it was good we had a KIA soul  on hand as one of the camera cars.

AWOL – The Teaser

I saw this video posted on and knew immediately that I had to share it with more people. I am not sure whats in that UK water but these are consistently cranking out high quality videos of their scene. However their is no doubt in my mind that with guys like Chris Hoare in our scene that we will soon be cranking out more dope videos of our own.

from on .

Check out to keep up to date with whats new from these guys.

WTF Friday Oct 9th 2009: Name these rides

7

Taking it back to challenge mode this weeks WTF Friday, I have three rides this week that some of you may have never seen or heard of before. The first people to correctly identify these cars will win a set of stanceiseverything.com stickers in the color of their choice once the stickers arrive from (first set got lost in the mail so a new set is en route).

Getting mentioned on last Sunday was a big deal for me (another goal crossed off my list) and helped Grosirbajuanak fan Stanley’s dream come true which is awesome.

I have a readers ride waiting to go up, and a new featured photographer in que. I am also working on a little editorial/article that should be out of my head and onto some paper (then the web) soon enough.

No show coverage or anything this weekend (Thanksgiving here in Canada) but I think Keven (who shot these) my gf (who shot these) and I will be experimenting with some rolling shots on the weekend so there will probably be some more exclusive photos next week as well.

For those of you in the GTA celebrating Thanks Giving have a safe one and for those of you who aren’t have a good one anyway.

Chris Hoare does CSCS

For every handful of great cars in the GTA there is a slightly smaller handful of photographers to go with them. I’m trying to hijack some of them for this blog but others just do the damn thing so well that I have to give respect where respect is due. is one of these photographers,  I spotted his blog not to long ago when he featured an and have been checking it weekly ever since. He recently did his first video and it’s of the CSCS event I covered recently so I figured I would share it with those of you who can’t get enough CSCS coverage.
