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.

You can check out more of and when your done checking out his site be sure to remember who sent you 😉
I’ve been wanting to take a trip out to for awhile and I have been wanting to go to a event for just as long so it figures that when I finally had the time to go to one the weather was a mixed bag of nuts. The weather eventually led to the cancellation of the drag racing and had the show and shine guys spent more time drying their cars than showing them but I still took quite a few pics. I am going to start breaking up my event coverage into easier to load pieces (about 30 photos per post) so this is part 1 of the coverage; Random stuff, Drag, Paddock Cars, and Drifters.
Like every other show I go to I took pics of interesting things that caught my eye, taught me to appreciate the little things, go see that movie by the way.
I Didn’t get a lot of drag pictures at all since whenever I went over there it seemed to be raining and when it wasn’t I was eating, I plan on going to a few drags next year so you 1/4 junkies will have to stick around for awhile.
These cars were either lapping or competing in the un-registered hard parking (spectating like myself) event .
The Drift event was pretty interesting due to the ever changing track conditions. Some people who did well during practice didn’t do so well during qualifying and vice-versa. I didn’t get to stick around for the finals so I don’t know who won…
That’s it for now, check back later today for photos of the cars in the Show & Shine
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: Mean Miatas
I’m fully capable of admitting when I’m wrong, and as young lad I was wrong in my assumption that Miatas were a , in my defense my attractive female neighbor did drive one.
However sometime after I saw my first I decided to do a little research on these small Mazdas and my tune completely changed. Miatas are a real ‘drivers’ car and since starting this blog I have come across quite a few magnificent looking ones, here are a few.
As always if you want to see a certain theme for next week let me know via the comments.
I sent the picture to my friend Keven who told me that the car was actually owned by his girlfriends father Dale this set the wheels in motion to get this Impala the shine time it deserves on Grosirbajuanak.
Dale saved this 62 Impala from becoming a potential rats nest in the confines of a dusty barn in Vancouver British Columbia and transformed it into the beautiful piece of machinery you see before you today.
Once Dale picked up the car he chose to go the resto-mod route which meant the first stop was the paint booth for a little TLC.
Once the interior and exterior got some love a stealth air ride system was added along with oversize torque thrust wheels which compliment the freshly rejuvenated chrome bumpers and trim.
The Impala is noe Dale’s weekend toy which he loves to show off at local Toronto area cruise ins.
In one final example of six degrees of separation Dale’s wife is a flight attendant who happened to have Chip Foose on one of her flights, and after a few how do you do’s Dale is now the owner of a personally signed marker and pen illustration of his Impala.
Some guys have all the luck.
Thanks to Keven for shooting these photos for me, and Dale for allowing us to feature his ride.
Expect to see a lot more photos from Keven on this site as he is about as down as it gets in support for this blog.
As always if you want your car featured send me an at
Anyone remember the game ? It was a pretty good arcade game back in the days. Since I live close to the only surviving I played a lot of crazy taxi, this doesn’t really have much today with today’s post other than the fact that these are some Crazy Taxis.
I am not sure what country are from but it seems like it’s not a one off deal. Modifying a taxi seems a little counter productive since I couldn’t imagine people liking it when you slow down to a crawl to get over a speed bump so the kit on your taxi doesn’t scrape but what do I know.
Ninja Edit: Hey guys I forgot this earlier but another great week here at Grosirbajuanak, daily traffic keeps going up by leaps and bounds and I am gathering a few comments each week as well which means people are participating in discussions. This Saturday I plan to head out to the last event (weather permitting) for some new event coverage content for Wed and on Monday I have a sick exclusive feature car get stoked!
Years ago I came across a Lexus LS in my dads neighborhood that made had me questioning how someone could drive so low. Ever since that day I took the route too my dads house that passed by where I originally saw the car. VIP-esque cars were and are still pretty rare around here so I had made sure to get as many viewings as possible. I saw the car go through 2 sets of wheels then I never saw it again…
Thanks to the internet, and stickers on this car that read “” and What is Fonnixx? stickers. I’ve been able to track down this low flying Lexus LS.
The first time I saw this car was at night and I am not sure how I saw it since it didn’t have a single spec of chrome to be seen.
Chrome Neepers were the shit back in the day but even when the were running the show I knew that to rock 20s hard you had to lay low, thankfully this car is lower than low.

To my surprise the owner of this car keeps his up to date and I was able to nab some pictures of the car in this revision. I never saw it like this in person and these are probably my least favorite wheels of the bunch but its still ballin’ out of control.
Stepping the game up for 2009 the car now rolls on 22″ wheels, I am sure a lot of work went into choosing these wheels and looking at the car now it’s hard to imagine driving it on a regular basis.
One thing that bugs me is that after all this time the and sites still don’t answer the question of what exactly are they? I think i am going to holler at the owner and find out.
