ill.motion Sunday School 2015

_DSC2134
Fresh from the Driven show earlier this year, it was time for yet more car show goodness: the ill.motion Sunday School!

_DSC2195
I only started attending the Sunday School two years after its inception, but now I make it a point to try and go for the day as it’s a good excuse to enjoy the sunshine, see some cool cars, and enjoy some delicious bubble tea and sushi afterwards.

_DSC2219
I should however start taking the following Monday off as these Calgary day trips sure are exhausting.

_DSC2263
In any case, let’s take a look at what I was standing out in the blazing heat for all day…

_DSC2111
…kicking off with a car that needs no introduction, Trung’s Voltex/HKS/Everythingballin’ S2000.

_DSC2109
I never get tired looking at this car.

_DSC2295
Eddy’s car looking as ratty as ever.

_DSC2115
The Huber brothers cars both looking minty fresh.

_DSC2116
Looks like Zee has found a twin!

_DSC2117
Such a timeless design.

_DSC2119
Finally a full shot of the Funky Garage JZX100!

_DSC2120
Holy yes please.

_DSC2125
Hard to tell from the photo but the mirror finish decals on this car were absolutely blinding.

_DSC2127
I really like how this Rocket Bunny FD still has a somewhat subtle look to it compared to a lot of the other RB kitted cars we see.

_DSC2132
I just had to grab another shot of this super clean FD that I saw back at Driven. Also pretty rare to fine URAS aero on an FD.

_DSC2135
Love the old school vibe that this car has; I’m especially digging the Advans!

_DSC2141
I actually quite like the way the R32 taillights look on an S13 coupe.

_DSC2146
Just like last year, I was mostly looking forward to seeing a particular group of cars…

_DSC2171
…namely Reggie Mah and his friends who make the drive out all the way from Vancouver for this show!

_DSC2244
Reggie’s FR-S has changed quite a bit since the last time we saw it, including a brand new Varis Arising II kit mixed in with Rocket Bunny over fenders, another Rocket Bunny Wing, some bright blue TE37’s, and a new livery, just to name a few things.

_DSC2261
Don’t think it’s all just for looks though as this car is now boosted thanks to the addition of a GReddy turbo kit!

_DSC2167
Sitting right next to Reggie’s car was a Voltex wide-bodied Evo X which was actually just recently completed by the folks over at A&J Racing in Richmond.

_DSC2161
And right next to the Evo X? It’s biggest rival of course: a wide-bodied Varis wearing GRB Impreza STi.

_DSC2178
We also saw this car last year but as you can see, the owners like to change things up quite a bit as they go along.

_DSC2180
One of the finishing touches on this car would have to be the brand new Car Shop GLOW headlights. When I say brand new, I mean it. These bad boys were installed just the night prior!

_DSC2179
But when it comes to changing things up…

_DSC2156
…this Impreza takes the cake for me. Just ask anyone that I was at the show with; I absolutely LOVE this car.

_DSC2149
I’ll admit it, “itasha” is a super geeky/otaku thing to do, but this car just pulls it off so damn well. I’d take this livery over the Cusco-inspired one that it was rocking last year any day.

_DSC2153
This without a doubt was my favourite car of the show (sorry friends!) and probably one of my favourites of all time!

_DSC2187
A super clean Midnight Purple S14.

_DSC2189
I spotted this Integra a few months ago outside in the parking lot at Driven. Looking good!

_DSC2193
I really don’t know what else Ron can do to his R32 GTR to make it better. It’s so simple yet aggressive at the same time, which I think suites this car perfectly.

_DSC2197
It’s nice to see a JZX100 that hasn’t been turned into a drift missile.

_DSC2198
Quite the interesting Mazda 3…

_DSC2201
I’ll give a cookie to whoever knows what this is. Dem RPF1’s though!

_DSC2207
I remember I used to see MR2’s all the time. Sadly they seem to be becoming more of a rarity these days, especially clean examples like this one.

_DSC2209
God do I ever love the Ridox kit for the Supra.

_DSC2212
Well that’s one way to do it.

_DSC2215
Don’t think I’ve ever seen a modified Prius in person until now.

_DSC2224
Tommy’s immaculate M3 was also in attendance and would take home yet another award. Congrats Tommy!

_DSC2226
Right next to the M3 was this equally insane looking X6M which I believe also belongs to Tommy. Crazy.

_DSC2229
I snapped a picture of this Impreza earlier this year and it ended up on JDMgram. Awesome!

_DSC2230
Old school Celica with TE37SL Black Edition’s adding that modern touch.

_DSC2233
J’s Racing or Mugen?

_DSC2235
Personally I can’t get enough of the Mugen kit, despite that big gigantic smile up front.

_DSC2104
As always, I make it a point to check out the parking lot at events like these as it’s always full of surprizes.

_DSC2238
Super cool looking Mugen kitted TSX.

_DSC2239
I just love these things so much. Sadly we don’t see enough modified examples around town, unlike in Vancouver.

_DSC2240
Gangster twins.

_DSC2246
Battle hardened R32.

_DSC2249
Another one of my favourites from the show were actually these pair of 964’s in the parking lot.

_DSC2251
Both were absolutely slammed and unbelievably clean.

_DSC2252
I think this is a perfect example of how simple is sometimes best. As if I didn’t already love Porsches enough, this is something else!

_DSC2253
Don’t think I’ve ever seen an SLK done up like this before.

_DSC2255
A Scion iQ rolling on TE37’s brought out by the guys over at Country Hills Toyota.

_DSC2256
An immaculate 1967 Ford Thunderbird is already pretty cool…

_DSC2257
…but this guy stepped it up a notch and had an equally old school A&W windows tray!

_DSC2265
Now THIS is really awesome. I’ve always had a soft spot for Civic Sedans/EL’s but this guy just takes it to another level. Perhaps I’ll have to do the same with my own EL…?

_DSC2267
A super clean EG with a Voltex GT wing out back…

_DSC2276
…and a JDM Integra front end conversion up front!

_DSC2269
Talk about 1999. This group definitely brought back memories from when I first got into this scene.

_DSC2272
Jimmy’s EM1 on his brand new set of TE37’s! Boy are these popular rims.

_DSC2274
Pretty interesting to see how the owner or this R32 GTR decided to go with a set of Watanabe’s. I actually think it looks pretty good, what do you guys think?

_DSC2279
I never knew that the S600 was available in left hand drive. Hopefully Honda decides to release the new S660 outside of Japan!

_DSC2291
I haven’t the slightest clue as to what this is, but it looks pretty cool.

_DSC2297
With only a few months of summer left, there’s not much more time for car related activities. I plan to attend at least a couple more events so stay tuned for more while the sunshine lasts!

-brandon.

  1. Hi, thanks for featuring my 1967 Thunderbird in your blog! A bit of history for you – my father bought the car back in 1977 and was the first car I ever drove. When he passed away in 2009, I inherited it and since then have repainted it and put on new tires, but the roof and interior are original. As one of the very few women who own a classic car, I am very proud to take it out to weekly meets and relate the history of it to car lovers. :-)
