    Well I attended Driven Calgary! It was a great show! 400 cars of pure insanity. Mostly imports and exotics, was refreshing compared to the normal car shows in the area. The show presents local and some traveling cars that are shown at booths for organizations or businesses. The show was essentially invite only to represent booths at the show. There was also a private collection of exotics that came, but I don't have a ton of picture of those since they were roped off.


    I went for Beyond.ca that presented the show. I was shocked to be considered for the show and was super excited when accepted.

    I was even more shocked when I got an award... definitely wasn't expecting that considering all the insane builds that were at the event. I ended up winning Judge's Choice, I forget how they explained it but it was something along the line of for a vehicle that didn't really fit a category but the judges felt the work done to the vehicle and the owner of the vehicle deserved recognition. I think something like that? Either way I was blown away.

    That S14 with the version select kit is killin' it. Alot of awesome cars it seemed, although I cringed a bit at the F40 wrapped in fake carbon fiber. The luscious rosso corsa should never be touched.

    The owner of the large exotic collection had all sorts of wrap and paint jobs. I'm all for customizing but it wasn't my taste. The chrome wraps in particular don't do it for me.

    Certain cars (cough* Ferrari F40 cough*) should not be customized. They are pieces of art how they come. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to be different since they're all the same.

    What a lot of cool cars, I like that kind of variety. I have to say that there is a special place in my heart for the MKI Mister 2 though I used to own that identical car as a kid and really miss it. To see one that clean makes me happy.

    Looks like a fun event!

    Nice pics! Saw my wheels on a few of them. Well they coulda been the real versions but same none the less. That 4Runner with the Volks has gotta be one of the best looking ones I've seen. Is the f40 wrapped in CF or is it just satin black? From my laptop it looks black.

    Some sharp cars for sure! But why all the tire stretching?!? I don't get it.

    It appeared just satin to me.

    And same wheel? I don't have anything against your wheels, but authentic wheels and reps aren't the same thing.

    The 4 runner was pretty damn good

    That escalated quickly lol

    I like the red focus ST on bags and work wheels.

    I also like a handful of the r32gtrs.
