Performance Improvements Does the Texas Mile

To celebrate their 50th year of operation Andy McJannett and his brother Rob McJannett, sons of Performance Improvements Speed Shops founder Bob McJannett, set forth on a road trip from Toronto Ontario to Las Vegas Nevada for SEMA 2013. After a little bit of trip planning on their Parrot Asteroid the brothers McJannett noticed that the famed Texas Mile was 'almost' on the way, so in the name of speed they made a little detour on their way to the city of sin.

Event Coverage: World Of Wheels 2013

Last weekend the 47th Annual Auto Value World Of Wheels took place at the BMO Center in Calgary Alberta, and contributing photographer Mike McConnell just so happened to be in attendance with his trusty DSLR. Based on his coverage World of Wheels looks very similar to Performance World (now Megaspeed) here in Ontario. It caters mostly to classics --something I don't mind at all-- but every make, model, and style of build is welcome.

Event Coverage: Mega Speed 2013 – Part 1

With Performance World going the way of the dodo Mega Speed had big shoes to fill when they stepped up to replace the previous unofficial show season opener here in Toronto. From a spectators perspective Mega Speed 2012 was a resounding success and Mega Speed 2013 was shaping up to be a great follow up.

Event Coverage: Mega Speed Part 1

Being one of my favorite shows in the area I was pretty worried when I heard that Performance World was no more because it was one of the few shows that catered to every part of the automotive hobby. Thankfully the Mega Speed Custom Car and Truck Show team (which I hear is a lot of the same people behind Performance World) picked right up where P.W. left off and as a spectator I didn't really notice a difference between this new show and the previous shows.

Theme Tuesdays: Rat Rods of PW 2011

Since I'm sitting on a bunch of photos from Performance World (about 50 left not including today) I figured using them instead of internet finds for today's Theme Tuesday wouldn't be a bad idea because it's rare I have original content for Tuesdays. These are most of the rats from Performance World, some are perhaps not exactly rats but were in and amongst the rat rods so I included them anyway.

Event Coverage: Megaspeed 2014 – Part 1

When Megaspeed replaced Performance World in 2012 they ended up sliding their feet into some pretty big shoes, and this year it was fairly...

Event Coverage: Fleetwood Cruize In: Part 1

Since I had never been to Fleetwood Country Cruize In before I wasn't really sure what to expect. I figured it would be pretty good at least being affiliated with The Speed Channel and Meguairs' Car Crazy, but I really had no idea just how big of a classic car event this was until we were on our way to Dorchester the night before and we passed classic after classic on the highway. This was easily the biggest car show I have been to in Ontario with vehicles sprawled all over the ginormous Plunkett estate. It was a sight to behold and worth the trip if you were ever debating it.

Event Coverage: Voice Coil Meltdown 5

This weekend was the 5th Annual Voice Coil Meltdown and Tuner Jam Show put on by Division R Performance and hosted at Selective Sound in Mississauga. Since I had missed this show all four previous years I made a mental note to attend this one even before Sam had invited me out to the event to cover and sponsor it. The show had a great turnout and for the most part the weather cooperated, here are the photos from this year and I hope to make it out again next year.
