PASMAG Coverage: 2015 Fitted Toronto (Photos by Shere Photography)

Whether you’re static or on bags, poked or flush, Japanese, Euro or USDM, as long as you’re an enthusiast of the aggressive fitment movement, Fitted Lifestyle is the show for you. Yet again, the event took over the steel buildings of the Brampton Fairgrounds, as well as the vast outdoor parking lot, filling each to the brim.

It seems that each year, there are more and more competitors coming out with harder, better, faster and stronger iterations of what they showed the last year. This is true for both inside and outside and what makes Fitted such a unique event. See, inside is where all of the competitors park. These are the show and shine-ready rides that are being judged all day to hopefully come back with a very sweet Fitted trophy. Outside is an old-fashioned dirt lot, but it’s packed with unique and noteworthy cars whose owners don’t want to compete – they just want to show-off and hang out. Competition inside, car meet outside. You really can’t go wrong.

"2015 marks our 6th annual year hosting FITTED," David Soo, Founder of Fitted Lifestyle, stated. "Each year we grow but 2015 is a landmark moment highlighting many proud achievements. Most notable is our partnership with media giant, PASMAG. The support from their outlet has provided us many positive residuals including an expanded audience and reach. This was definitely felt as our competitor base was overwhelmingly 50% out-of-province!"

Speaking of competition, Tuner Battlegrounds: Live took place at Fitted once again, and both competitors came out swinging with air bags and flared fenders. The battle between Steve Luangpakdy’s Acura TL and Karine Lajoie Robin’s Mazdaspeed3 was hard fought. Luangpakdy ended up on top at the end of the day with 66 percent of the total vote. His TL also took home Best VIP and gained recognition from Liberty VIP as their newest plate holder.

Fitted’s full title is actually “Fitted Lifestyle,” which adds yet another facet to the show with something for everyone. Showing off their own lifestyle merchandise, Fitted was offering t-shirts, plate frames and other goodies to dress you and your ride. Across the cement was TBA (Throttle Brake Apex), who teamed up with Dirty Nails Bloody Knuckles (DNBK) to display both of their new product lines.

Tanoshi Design even drove in to offer up their new Work Wheels collab gear, while Eurokracy made an even bigger trip to appease the Euro fans.

"As always, we look for ways to improve and deliver an experience which reflects a true automotive community. In addition to aggressive wheel fitment, we've expanded our curated content to include pre-selected time attack and drift cars. Our event activities have also grown with a larger indoor RC Drift track and more vendors. New to this year is our "pop-up" installations throughout the event, which is an exclusive first for FITTED and any other event in Canada. These are interactive experiences which added a little more than your standard display. For example, we featured the "Market Barbershop" as a pop-up installation where attendees could line-up to receive a free mens haircut! As you can you tell, FITTED was designed to be an engaging and culture-driven event. We take pride in being the only event where our activities, content, and custom trophies truly reflect a symbiotic relationship with our fans!" - David Soo, Fitted Lifestyle

SEMA 2016: Las Vegas, NV

The largest automotive trade show through the eyes of a noob and a veteran, respectively. Adam Gordon (AG): As a first-timer at SEMA, the Las Vegas Convention Center is truly a sensory overload. It can be overwhelming at times when you don't know what to look at, or which hall to explore next. With luck, I was able to see the entire show, only finishing my tour of duty in the final hours of the last day. Picking favorites from the plethora of builds was a task in itself. Micky Slinger (MS): This was my third SEMA. Since 2013, I’ve…

AutoCon 2013: Arcadia, CA

Text by Eric Lopez. Photography by Mario Cruz & Ari Cox)The 2013 AutoCon tour kicked off in Arcadia, California for its second straight appearance at the beautiful Santa Anita Park. For an event that started four years ago in an underground parking structure, AutoCon has grown to be one of the largest automotive shows in the Southern California scene. Improvements to layout and roll-in time starts made for a much smoother show than in previous years and in the maze of cars, the lack of space made it near impossible to shoot and admire every one.Vendors such as R1 Concepts,…

DMCC 2014 Round 6: Ste-Pie, QC

Written by Jeremy Alan Glover | Photos by Jeremy Alan Glover The 6th and Final Round of the 2014 DMCC series took place on September 13, 2014 at the Sanair Raceway in Ste-Pie, QC, located just south of Montreal. The day started off not too bad; it was grey and cold but at least it was dry. Practice started off great but some of the drivers were having a hard time dealing with the course layout the judges had set-up. Half way through practice, the judges ended up changing the layout out from a more technical entry to a higher-speed…
