Back with the second and final part of the CSCS season Opener coverage with today focusing on the show & shine and Stretch & Poke Fitted showcase.
The CSCS show & shine is always an interesting mix of cars and I have tried to capture a lot of them here, I missed out on a couple between heading back and forth to the track and talking to people but there is a good mix of what was there in this coverage.
Chances are a lot of the cars present Sunday will be at later events so I’m more than certain I will get everything before the season is out.
Trying to pick this back up again because there is no shortage of weird, wild, stuff at car shows in the GTA.
Kimi Qin is reportedly the driver I dubbed ‘Racer-X’ in yesterdays coverage and in addition to the Mine’s GTR he brought out two Ferraris and 3 women in tight dresses.
They say money can’t buy happiness and while it’s true I never saw Mr. Qin smile he didn’t look mad either.
US based car club/show team Nokturnal made it out for the CSCS opener and brought along some of their more unique projects, new york guys seem to really love marble paint.
If I hung around the strip a bit more I probably would have seen a few more domestics.

Stretch & Poke Fitted Showcase
Stretch & Poke teamed up with CSCS to have their first trophy show for 2012 at the CSCS season opener, while the turnout wasn’t as big as their meet the weekend before it was pretty good again considering the weather mans predictions of doom for the day and the fact that Spring Fling (coverage soon) took out most of the VWs.
I even managed to score some tire shine in the raffle.
That’s it for this round of CSCS coverage, the next round is June 24th at Grand Bend which is the same day as the Nine-O-Five Rides Truck & Tuner expo.
I’m looking to get coverage of both and I can only be in one place at a time so if you are in either Grand Bend or Niagara and feel like contributing footage from one of those two shows please shoot me an email (stanceiseverything at(@) gmail.com.
Can anyone tell me what suspension the white and yellow mazda is on?
Thanks for the picture of my cars new look again this year. Sorry that you think it looks odd. It’s still a work in progress to dial it in.
@Chris are they solid beam rear?
@Dan the Mazda 3? It is on BCs
Yup it’s a solid rear beam with the caliper brackets as one piece with the beam. So can’t shim for camber.
Picked up a drum brake rear beam( sans caliper brackets) and fabbing some new caliper brackets to mount between the hub. Shimming that and then I can get camber in the rear. Motor and tranny are being lifted as well so I can get the car lower. It’s a lot harder to properly fit a car that has zero aftermarket in doing so. Once it’s done it should look good.
FYI you snapped pics of my car last year. Had the custom drilled BBS lm reps on them.
Ya when you passed on the highway I figured it had to be solid or else you would have had some camber.
I seem to recall other people trying to do the same with your car having the same problem. I’ll keep an eye out for your progress as the season goes on.
Thanks for the pictures of Kit.
Owner sure is real! 🙂
