Unfortunately soon after I arrived it started to rail lightly which put a quick end to things, but, I was able to fire off some shots and get something for WTF Friday.
I also meet a real down to earth s-10 owner in the process, good times.
Clarkson’s GT turned out to be lemon and he had to return it right? This one seems to be doing better.
Unique cars that caught my attention for one reason or another.
No matter how dangerous and unhealthy it is working with lead is still and art form as much as these Lead Sleds are.
Muscle and Classics
Got to see what I set out to see.
Day & Nite
I’m ending today’s coverage with this s10. The owner, James, and myself talked for quite awhile in the light rain about trucks (remember I had an s10 Blazer), shows, clubs and just automobiles in general and it’s always nice to come across someone who just loves cars and shows as much as yourself and doesn’t hold any of the ego that is often associated with the various scenes.
James has put a lot of work in this truck, which is the first vehicle he ever owned, and talking with him I could tell that he did it for himself first, real enthusiasts second, and show recognition a distant third.
I look forward to seeing James and his truck at other events around the GTA.
Hopefully I can make it out to one or two more of these before summers all said and done.
The corvair might not have been fast, but unlike many of the American automobiles of that vintage that ran in the scca, the corvair could hold it’s own.
i love the off beat stuff ,oh to eny one who hasnt driven a mini your not a real car lover (that ones a bit tame for a custom ) i bet there rairer than rocking horse shit?
That power steering resevoir on the Ford GT, looks like it’s taken right out of an E30/6.
Haven’t been out to Street Classics last year, life sort of got in the way. I haven’t seen or heard anything about their 2011 season. Can you perhaps tell me what the start date is?
This show has grown each year and has to be one of the largest of its kind in the GTA.
My wheels are back in one piece and I am anxious to come down and see how much it has grown.
Season started yesterday sweet!
Thanks for responding so quick.
I just checked the Street Classics web site.
It shows start date as May 15, 2010 .
There is nothing on it for a start date this year. ( 2011 )
Have you heard anything?
Obviously their site is not up to date.
Whoops you are right that is 2010. I’ll send them an email
Street Classics are indeed running for 2011. Saturday night was the 1st show this year.
George and Bonnie are facing some tough personal health issues and will be stepping back a bit.
In the interim Mark Foster, President of Camaro Country,”F” Body Group (CCFBG) will be stepping in to look after the cruise. Check out their web site.
Thought I would update you on the cruise. Lot was full and everyone was obviously glad to have the winter over. Nice to see the reaquantances of these people who have been in hibernation for the past few months.
Oh and by the way, keep up the excellent work on this website!!
