Greetings and welcome to what is apparently the annual hottest Sunday of the year, otherwise known as the ill.motion Sunday School. I don’t know how they do it, but every year since it’s inception this show has been blazing hot out (not a bad thing at all however considering that it is an outdoor show). I wasn’t able to make the show last year due to being out of town so I made sure to make the drive down this time around.

Situated right in the heart of downtown Calgary, Sunday School always brings out the best of the province while still maintaining a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Yes it is a car show, yes there are awards, and despite originally being an automotive blog so to say, this show isn’t powered by “likes” or “hashtags”; it’s powered by passion, something that seems to be lost these days. This is one of the reasons I love this show so much; I get to see so many people that truly love this scene, a lot of which I’m lucky enough to call my friends today. While we still have our preferences, we all still enjoy the scene whether it’s hanging out at shows, battling on the track, or just going for a good ol’ cruise. We love cars and that’s what brings us together (that and sushi and bubble tea).

Anyhow let’s get on with the show coverage.

Last time we saw this Suzuki Carry at Sunday School it was white, but it is now finished off in this amazing looking Tiffany blue like finish. Hands down one of my favourites from the show!

Tom made the trip out with his Integra all the way from California for the show. I still really dig the Super Advans on this chassis, definitely not a common combo!

_DSC6476
Funky Garage bringing the 80’s back to life.

_DSC6477

_DSC6478
Incredibly clean Honda F22 powered AE86 Corolla coupe. It’s hard to see in the pictures but it even has carbon doors which is just too cool.

_DSC6480

_DSC6483

_DSC6484
Woooster’s incredibly clean EK9 Civic Type R N1 Race Base that just went through a full restoration. I’ve been following this build on Instagram for a while and it’s come a very long way since it first arrived on Canadian soil. Good job sir.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen Brandon’s RSX since we all don’t track as much anymore. He’s still been slowly working on it however and now has J’s Racing fenders, a Mugen tow hook, and custom front splitter.

_DSC6612

_DSC6653
Javin made the drive down from Edmonton in his S30.

_DSC6654

_DSC6655
As if this FD wasn’t clean enough before, it now rocks a full Total Car Produce Magic kit and I think is the PERFECT example of a clean yet incredibly aggressive look. The kit mixed in with the Advan GT’s, the Ganador mirrors, the fixed headlights, and that refreshing teal paint just all go so well together.

_DSC6658

_DSC6660
The old Koncept Industries RB26 powered S13 sans intense livery.

Gabriel’s turbocharged Integra GS-R.

_DSC6665

_DSC6685
Kaiser’s 86 is still the only one I’m aware of rocking the TRD aero around here.

_DSC6691
Another show favourite for me was this deep purple 240SX tucked away in the corner. It actually has a plethora of carbon parts around the car including carbon doors and is also lady owned and driven!

_DSC6692
Finishing off my show coverage with this Sienna slammed on bags with Advan GT’s, because if you have to be a dad then you might as well do it with super JDM style!

This will also be my last time saying “until next year” as next years show is not only ill.motion’s 10th show, but also their last. I’m a little sad to hear the news but realistically it can really only continue on for so long. Since I’ve first attended this show it’s always been on my agenda to go every year as it always brings out not only plenty of quality builds, but also lots of variety and more importantly lots of fun. Everyone is just out to enjoy themselves and that’s exactly what I do every time. It will be missed, but there is still one final time to enjoy it. Until next year.
