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 fit the vehicles overall theme). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: Bagged Rides
Decided to actually go with a theme this week and not a type of car. For awhile air bags seemed pretty much restricted to mini trucks, however times have changed and everyone is getting on the bandwagon and rightfully so since bags are the best of both words, low when parked or cruising, and higher when you need to get down to business.
The originators of all this air bag business, drag that shit.
If you build it someone will bag it
The VW crowd is not one to be left out of anything ever.
Audi, Mercedes, Minis
Audi and Mercedes fans follow suit.
Vip builds are always pretty serious and big wheels with tight fitment and low slung stance are essential. So adding air ride is just an extension of that.
I’m not a really big self hype kind of guy I would rather toss over the accolades to someone else and let my work continue to be the platform to showcase the work of others. So that being said here is a collection of exceptional photos of my girlfriends first foray into automotive photography using my ride as the test mule.
Lyndsey did an excellent job of choosing great locations for all of these photos all I had to do was wash my car, show up, and park.
For those of you viewing from out of town (or even out of country) all of these shots were taken at with the backdrops spied out by Lyndsey’s creative eye.
If you want to head out and use this venue for photos of your own security is really light on days when there are no events.
Her photography site at is not fully up yet but her is up and running at
This is the first time I have been to in probably 9 years. Last time I went was still around. This show is hyped as the biggest car show in Canada so I guess my expectations were really high. I’ve been to a lot of shows this summer so that lead to me having seen a lot of the cars already. However I had not seen a lot of the models already so I took lots of pictures of them to make up for it haha. Let’s go.
This is what you guys came to see don’t front. Most of the model pics are candid or flash poached because my camera set up is not serious enough for them to want to pose for just me.
Crazy In car entertainment setups, some of this was way way over the top.
Sometimes I find car shows and sometimes they find me, the latter happened on September 5th when I stumbled across the 20th Annual Kirkfield Car show and Parade while camping with my girlfriend. She just got a Cannon 50D so I got to relax while someone else took the pictures this time around. A vacation indeed.
Accessories,stickers, grills, and emblems
Land Yachts and Boulevard Cruisers
Some of these classics are just huge, and some were just meant to cruise up and down the Boulevard windows down on a hot summers day.
A Few race cars showed up to this show, I assume the racers got trailer-ed in but it was a small town.
Cadillac motors have been turning up in the weirdest places lately, first that Chevy Cavalier from Scrape By The Lake and now this 53 or so Eldorado Convertible. After my “Holy Shit” reaction the owner showed interest in me and we conversed for awhile about the car.
He told me that he got this car for a steal because the swap wasn’t running and all it needed was a sensor replaced to work with the engine harness used during the swap.
He also went on to tell me that he had it appraised at 150 grand and that it was for sale so he could redo his other ride, , I really wish I could afford this unique Caddy.
I didn’t really plan on today being a double post day I figured the Kirkfield Car show event coverage I will have up this afternoon/evening would be all I would post today. But when I saw this Mazda Speed 3 that posted on I knew I had to post it.
When I saw these photos my jaw stopped short of hitting the floor only because it hit the desk first. This fitment is dead on point.
I have been stuck on a few roads where the grades have suddenly changed (this morning for example) and have had to drive very slowly to avoid scraping but I have no clue what I would do in a situation like this, every choice involves some sort of damage.
When I started this blog I had no idea where it would take me, or how often I would post, however 100 posts came up almost unexpectedly and what better way to celebrate than with a story about a full restoration done by a local car nut?
The builder of this car is like me in a lot of ways he loves, ,, the internet industry, b, and fine pieces of American muscle.
Over the course of seven or so years Eugene has worked tirelessly to restore this 1968 Pontiac Firebird to factory show room condition only to put it up for sale after about one year of seat time.
To some putting that much work into a project then selling it so quickly might be a little crazy but for Eugene the art of the build is just as enjoyable as the finished project.
In fact he has already started considering his next project; a 1940s Fleet side Pickup.
If Eugene keeps cranking out cars of this calibre and selling them for such reasonable prices () than the prospects of all us us being able to one day own a piece of American muscle history just shot up.
Eugene’s story writes out like a novel, , his fascination with the first gen Firebirds started when he worked at the GM plant and familiarized himself with the parts and service manuals of the 1967-1969 Firebird.
With a new found love and a wealth of knowledge he set forth to build a show room ready First Gen Bird.
He started off with one that was not too rough around the edges…
In it’s most powerful form the 68 Firebird came with an inline six rated at 215hp. I learned this reading dedicated to thsi cars build.
Something else I learned is that motor was designed by the same person who designed .
The Motor running after rebuild
The interior was a bit of a mish-mash which can be somewhat expected of a car of this vintage.
All of this was addressed by Eugene during the restoration which brought the interior back to it’s intended glory.
Exterior Restoration The climate in the GTA is terrible for the longevity of cars, they all rust to some degree, thankfully Eugene took the time to have his car repaired properly and not smacked full of bondo.
The finished product
This car turned out beautiful in the end and while it doesn’t have any suspension mods its original stance is one that demands attention and I am sure every car enthusiast would turn their head as this bird flies by.
I’m really honored that Eugene wanted me to do a piece on his car and part of me is sad to see that he is selling it so quickly, however I am really excited to see what he does with his next project.
If you want to read more about the restoration process of this car check out the page Eugene built all about it, , all of the pictures in this feature came from there.

Thanks for reading the first 100 and stick around for many more.
An old BMX friend of mine, turned pro drifter, has been destroying the drift scene lately with his crew and his AE86, made it out to the DMCC finals in Quebec where as far as I can tell via Pat continued to dominate the pack as he has all year and take home the DMCC overall championship.
It’s always great to see old friends doing big things so congratulations Pat for not only taking home the championship but inspiring a whole lot of BMX riders to follow in your foot steps *cough*Brad*cough.
from on .
I hope Pat enjoys this much success next year, he deserves it.
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 fit the vehicles overall theme). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: Mazda 3s
Some of you may already know this, but if you don’t, I drive a Mazda 3 and lately I have been wheel shopping. Spending time working on this site and looking at awesome wheels all the time made me realize that I should upgrade my stock rollers.
I wanted to do something unique in regards to wheel choice so I have been browsing a lot of Mazda 3 forums over the past two weeks or so. My mandate was to not copy someone else, and do something unique. While making sure my next wheels fit this criteria I manged to arrange a collection of sweet Mazda 3s for this Tuesday in the process.
