Event Coverage: Megaspeed 2014 – Part 2

Additional Photography By: Drake Nolte

2

As mentioned in part one of this year’s Megaspeed Coverage the show itself was a little bit smaller than last year, but since it houses imports, euros, trucks, muscle cars, rat rods, and hot rods all under one roof it’s still a pretty good time and a welcome break from the doldrums of what appears to be a never ending winter.

In today’s coverage Drake and myself branch off from the tuner hall and check out the rest of the show which predominately features classics, trucks, hot rods, rat rods and muscle cars as well as a few other oddball vehicles here and there.

Smack dab in the middle of the main hall was last years grand champ, The Boothill Hauler

This just might just be the first Ford Falcon Ranchero  to ever be posted here on Stance Is Everything

Pretty wild  Factory 5 sitting  in the main hall
megaspeed_2014_hall_1_drag_camaro
This years show had a couple very nice looking (Pro Mod?) drag  cars in the front hall like this 68 Camaro…

…this 68 Shelby looked incredible as well

One day I’ll have to find out if the 1:1 came before the models or vice versa
megaspeed_2014_50_gmc_bagged_main_hall_rustored_1
This 1950 GMC in the main hall got quite a bit of attention this year
megaspeed_2014_50_gmc_bagged_main_hall_rustored_3
It’s a pretty good looking truck provided you don’t take objection to crafted patina

I believe the story went that the truck originally belonged to an excavation company in Mexico, and you can just barley make out the original logo on the door
megaspeed_2014_ford_torino_1
If you check out the latest edition of Canadian Hot Rods magazine there is a feature on this beautiful Torino inside written by yours truly…

…not to toot my own horn or anything

This was kind of weird, can’t say I’ve seen a kitted bus before and personally I would have forgone the kit and just laid the bastard out

I feel like if the rear tires  tell a tale this 56 International Harvester might be a bit of a sleeper…

I actually somehow managed to completely miss this so I am glad Drake caught it

Last time I saw this car was at the Roadmates Corn Roast

Call me immature if you wish, but I love this rad cap!

This 502 was found under the hood of an 87 S-10

Great looking mill that can no doubt pull a few stumps
megaspeed_2014_chevy_bagged_dodge
My photo of this truck ended up being pretty soft so I am glad Drake got a shot of it
megaspeed_2014_mazda_geoff
Geoff’s Mazda is a Megaspeed regular

Megaspeed can be a long weekend for competitors… as Geoff illustrates here
megaspeed_2014_gary_donkers_ranger_1
Gary actually just put this truck up for sale so that he can move onto something new

megaspeed_2014_chevy_s10_tim_1
After looking at this truck several times I have concluded that this is one my favourite s10s ever built

megaspeed_2014_chevy_s10_tim_3
It’s got a lot of really awesome details embedded throughout and is as straight as an arrow

Going to end things off  today by running through the impressive line up of vehicles from the Distorted Visions Car Club

megaspeed_2014_distorted_vision_craig_1
These were easily some of the most talked about vehicles of the entire show…

megaspeed_2014_distorted_vision_craig_2

..and for good reason because they were really like none other there

Jeff’s 52 was a last minute addition to the Distorted Vision line up for 2014 and I was personally pretty damn stoked to see it in person

megaspeed_2014_52_gmc_jeff_7
The fabrication work is incredibly impressive, more so than the pictures can illustrate

Jeff still has tons of ideas left to pour into this truck so I suggest you follow the build here on Stance Works and give Works Garage a like on Facebook as well

Drake sent through a lot of photos so don’t be surprised if a Part 3 comes later this week!

  1. I like how you dont stick to one scene you branch out and photograph weirder stuff. i just wanted to know what that gear with it looks like some kindof air tool running a chain linking it to the exhaust was. just curious it looks like a cut off for the exhaust to run straight headers or muffled.

    • haha first off thanks for the compliment.

      Second that is exactly what it appears to be. I didn’t get a chance to talk to the owner but I feel fairly confident that is what it was!
