Event Coverage: Scrape By The Lake 09

2

This past weekend July 19th had to big events going, Eurofest and Scrape By The Lake, after weighing what both shows had to offer we headed out to Scrape By The Lake only because it’s the only show close enough to the GTA that has a large turnout of Low riders and mini trucks. With over 164 pictures ready for the web this coverage is going to be broken up into three parts over the next three days in addition to our regular fare.  First up: The Lowriders

Note: I am trying a larger resolution for the pictures so be sure to click on them as they open up larger

Hoppers – Hoppin
Hydraulics are a big part of the low riding community and somewhat rare at shows around here but Scrape was the place to go to see these cars do what no other can.
