A few weeks ago Importfest hosted a ‘Mega Meet’ –aka a show and shine– at Sherway Nissan is Mississauga. The event was open to all make and model of vehicles with speciality awards reserved for Nissan entrants.
Dealership shindigs are often hit or miss but this one was pretty solid offering up a variety of cars from classics all the way to big money exotics. In addition to cars there were a few food vendors, the Grey Cup, a handful of cheerleaders, and a couple Toronto Argonaut players.
It was also the first event where Lyndsey and I set up a retail booth to sell the 2013 fall line up of T-shirts. Thanks to everyone that came by to buy a sticker, shirt, or just hang out in the shade.
There was a noteable crowd around these cars all day so I’m pretty happy to have been able to get a shot of them people free…
….however I really wish I waited to get this shot without the random onlooker
While setting up the shot above this model so happened to walk into my field of vision
Brad parked beside a very nice wingless MR-S
Static Vs Bagged; Jon on the left Andrew on the right
I believe the wheels on Andrew’s car are 19×10.5 all around…
…while Jon is on 11s
Speaking of Nextmod a few of their Mississauga cars were out
This ‘Murcielago’ was in the Meguair’s booth. It was rumoured to be a kit of some sort…
…I never found the owner to ask but since there was a lot of Di-Noc throughout chances are pretty good it was a kit
This 458 Italia was no certainly no kit
Basit’s supercharged 645
Like all Importfest events Vossen had a strong presence
Stillen Supercharged bagged G
Locals will know what this car started as but any guesses from the out of town folk?
The SIE booth with my car acting as the booth babe
Sic was set up right behind us
His Lexus was present of course
Sharad came out near the end of the day and parked his car half in the shade
Crossed paths with the Gruppe-M NSX again… Argo cheerleader seems not to care
These two didn’t stay long at all but I’m glad they showed up
Love an awesome wood finished bed
Nothing wrong with this either…
Matt Budziosz’ wrapped 300zx got a prime spot inside
Barrada reppin’ JDMego
Being held at a Nissan dealership it only made sense there were a few Skylines attendance
Speaking of Skylines Jon Fiddy brought his back out from wherever he was hiding it
Paul Mann took home best of show honours with his R32
This Supra was rumoured to be a powerhouse
Never got a chance to talk to the owner but word on the street is 700+ hp
Judging by the width of those tires I believe it…
I’m not sure how many events like this Importfest plans to do in the future but I look forward to the next one.
