    Did you bring ear plugs for your kids? Holy crap it was loud in there.
    I like neat cars.

    Didn't even know this was happening.
    Guess not having social media, doesn't help.

    That Blue Supra was built in Edmonton at a shop called Mercari Auto by a bunch of young 20-25 yr old asian kids who own the place. He sold it to McLaren in Vancouver a few months ago and someone has bought it from them since. Nice kids, I know them well and they do some work for me regularly. The kid now got a 720S after trading his Supra and AMG GT he had as a new project. Seem to be doing well which is awesome.

    Took my 2.5 year old to the show.
    He had a good time! Definitely stressful ensuring he didn't touch anything... Busted some serious moves by the breakout competition as well.

    A friend walked around and roasted a bunch of cars on his Instagram and I really enjoyed that. Didn’t feel bad missing it for a track day.

    2 of my buddies won best of show for their rides. One of them a lowrider and the other a wide body skyline GTR. They deserved those wins for sure, alot of time and money into them both.

    I've planted my flag on Nothingburger Hill. Can't walk back from that stance now.

    I mean the show organizers should vet cars better so people aren’t paying $25 to see a Dodge Dart with stickers, steel wheels and winter tires. Yeah it’s petty but some of the filler they put into the show is truly bad.

    Does Driven even get enough interest to be able to be picky these days?

    How many beyonders even knew about it, or would have gone if they did? A pretty small fraction of guess.

    Are import models not a thing anymore?

    My thoughts as well. My guess is the organizers aren’t tasteless idiots; it comes down to lowering standards, or having a big venue with 17 cars in it cause no one else could make the cut. Based on the last time I was there, they took a similar approach with the “models”.
