Event Coverage: Fitted Lifestyle Toronto: 2015 – Pt. 1

Additional coverage By: Drake Nolte

2

Year after year Fitted Lifestyle continues to better their events and for myself along with many others it serves as the offical season opener.

The quality inside the venue yields quality outside, and of all the events I attend Fitted is top 3 when it comes to interesting cars in the parking lot. That’s why this year, like every year previous, that is exactly where the coverage is going to begin.

Would you believe this roll in of Mazdas was a complete coincidence?
fitted-toronto-2015-s13-style5s
Looking through Drake’s photos at a glance this s13 on style 5s almost looked like a BMW 8 series. Props to the owner for keeping this car super clean and understated. Looks like their might be a hint of purple in the paint too

There’s always an interesting domestic car or two in the Fitted Parking lot
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-foxbody
Speak of Foxbodies and they shall appear!
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-chevy-blazer
Tony’s Blazer with its almost impossibly clean factory paint….
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-s14
From the looks of things this car could have definitely made the cut to be parked inside
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-sorry-mom-ls400
I’ve seen this LS hovering around Mississauga, super clean car
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-bmw-e21
I actually can’t remember the last time I saw an e21 at an event period, never mind one is as great of shape as this

fitted-toronto-2015-outside-forty-eight-2
Awesome looking Harley Davidson Forty Eight

Drake was pretty partial to this s13

Even with dust swirling like crazy the owner of this dub saw no reason to put his hood on or wind up his windows
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-civic
Incredibly clean EF rocking one heck of a stinger

fitted-toronto-2015-outside-monizdetailing-prelude-5
Just recently I had heard mention of this car but I’d never seen it in person
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-monizdetailing-prelude-1
I missed it first hand at this event but Drake got to snap a few of it
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-monizdetailing-prelude-2
Not for the faint of heart by any means…
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-monizdetailing-prelude-3
…but it’s probably the most individualised car of the entire show
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-monizdetailing-prelude-4
It is actually probably pretty close to being an art car at this point
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-luke-beetle
Luke didn’t enter this year and instead laid out in the grass
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-datsun-5
As always he also brought a few friends with him
fitted-toronto-2015-outside-datsun-1
Including these two magnificent Datsuns!

Drake took a few photos of this one on SSR MKIIs…

…while I spent so much time circling this one on CR01s that I am surprised there isn’t a visible ring in the grass in this photo

Moving Indoors…

Of course the main attraction of Fitted has always been inside the two halls and this year there was a lot to see.

Many old favourites were back and completely redone in addition to a handful of first time shown vehicles.

@hemans4 is 100% committed to static life

I on the other hand, remain on the dark side and have transferred my air ride to the new daily
fitted-toronto-2015-mazda-speed3-mtechnica-2
There’s still a few things I want to do before I make a dedicated post about it but I really happy to finally have these Mtechnica wheels on the car
fitted-toronto-2015-mazda-speed3-mtechnica-3
For those wondering yes I can still drive the car hard enough to enjoy the turbo!
fitted-toronto-2015-porsche-964-level-one
Dan’s NSX is a thing of the past, but he’s done real well with his 987
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-stance-east
A couple of the boys from Stance East made the trek from New Brunswick, farthest travelled award next year?
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-vip-1
Several Quebec natives escaped their stringent laws this weekend by coming out to Ontario
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-vip-3
Can’t say I’ve seen a lot of VIP styled Volkswagens but the owner of this car nailed the execution
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-vip-2
This interior has more wood grain, rich leather, and high priced alcohol than my house!

fitted-toronto-2015-vw-vip-5
Love the trunk set up, lots of thought was put into tying this entire car together

fitted-toronto-2015-vw-vip-6

fitted-toronto-2015-vw-golf-so-clean-1
Also from ‘So Clean’ was this Golf which had one of those interesting 1/4 hoods you only ever see among the Volkswagen community
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-golf-so-clean-2
But it would be a shame to hide this shaved bay under a full hood
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-golf-so-clean-4
Quebec loves their hard liquor
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-golf-so-clean-6
Maybe it’s time I picked up a Cozy Coupe for my son
fitted-toronto-2015-vw-rabbit-wci-4
Last year this car was white, stock body, and sitting on BBS replicas

All of that is gone now that it is white and rocking Watercooled Industries wheels
fitted-toronto-2015-honda-ek-elevated-ef-petey-bbs-rs-2
When I first came up on Petey’s EF I just about had a heart attack thinking he got rid of his gorgeous SSR Defifin wheels

I breathed a sigh of relief when I noticed he still had them on the driver’s side. This side is my favourite but what’s yours?
fitted-toronto-2015-honda-ek-elevated-ef-petey-ssr-defi-fins-itbs
Not content with just a wheel switch he was also sporting individual throttle bodies under the hood, which are new since his feature here on Stance Is Everything

Going to finish today’s coverage out with Alex Lachance’s (@black_anvil_garage) incredible WRX wagon that was the subject of a post in September of 2014
fitted-toronto-2015-subaru-black-anvil-garage-2
Modified Karlton flares…
fitted-toronto-2015-subaru-black-anvil-garage-4
…a Chargespeed front bumper…
fitted-toronto-2015-subaru-black-anvil-garage-1
…and STI front fenders, rear quarters, and doors make this one SERIOUSLY awesome wagon. Nice guy to boot.

Drake and myself will have more coverage to look at tomorrow so do come back, there is lots more to share!
