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

Tokyo Auto Salon 2016: Mihama-ku, Chiba. Japan

TAS 2016 was a bit of a renaissance for me. It was the 10th consecutive time I’d visited the event since arriving in Japan in 2005. And whilst I wished for things to be totally different, I am glad that much of what I’ve come to know and love hasn’t changed at all, whereas many other things have undergone transformation. That’s not to suggest the Tokyo Auto Salon is stale in any way, but you do get used to the rhythm and tempo of the event after having visited it so many times. The same faces, the same names —…

KMS Drift Championship Series 2012

KMS stormed into Georgia on Feb. 11 to bring its first drift event of the 2012 KMS Drift Championship Series to South Georgia MotorSports Park.

Also adding to this spectacular event were the numerous car show and sound off competitors who used their rides to express their personal style by with both interior and exterior customization to bring life to their unique vision. Special thanks to Domino’s and Wing Stop who sponsored the pizza and…
