Japanese Classic Car Show JCCS 2014 Long Beach California PASMAG lead

The annual Japanese Classic Car Show is a must attend event for anyone interested in the JDM scene, and the 10th annual event held last fall at Queen Mary Park in Long Beach, California took things to a whole new level of awesome! The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot, there was a light breeze and the clouds were amazing. The show itself was, from what I could tell, very well put together with tons of high-quality cars everywhere you looked. A nice selection of old bikes was a pleasant surprise, but it was the Skylines that stole the show, that is until people started realizing there were amazing cars all around to appreciate.

Hats off to Mazda for bringing out one of its right-hand-drive Miatas – the forthcoming 2016 Mazda MX-5 that is, in early preproduction form – for JDM fanatics to fantasize over. As with any car show worth its salt, there was an awards ceremony where prizes and freebies were dished out to the deserving. And there was no shortage of deserving cars on display. In fact, we are so stoked about next year’s show, we’ve started stockpiling memory cards so we won’t miss a single one. Check out www.JapaneseClassicCarShow.com for more info.

Slide Canadian Drift Open 2012

Over the weekend one of the biggest events in Canadian drifting took place. The Slide Canadian Drift Open was held at the Icar circuit in Mirabel that’s just north of Montreal.

Right off the bat the action was crazy. With a crazy high speed entry followed by some tight sweepers…

Pushing The Limits Of Fitment: Fitted in Toronto, ON

Fitted is a special show for the car scene in Ontario, Canada. As it's probably the earliest show in the season, it acts as a season opener of sorts for everyone involved in the tight-knit community of a scene out here.

There's a reason #FittedPrep trends every year just before the show. When you roll into the Brampton Fairgrounds, a wave of nostalgia hits you of the many sunburnt summers spent out…

Consumer Electronics Show 2015: Las Vegas, NV

Text and Photography by Micky Slinger Back to the future The Consumer Electronics Show was a shock to the system. Yes, there were crazy new innovations shown that might make your life easier and sound better, but I’m talking about the sheer enormity of this place. I have been fortunate enough to do both of the biggest trade shows in the world, in one year. After SEMA, I was under the impression that I was the king of the Las Vegas Convention Center. I’m also a huge nerd, so these were my people. I walked into Central Hall thinking, “Let…
