The biggest & baddest Canadian Modified Car show, Importfest, has come and gone and it was AWESOME!!! Angelo Cayanan Photography was able to attend the show in Toronto and got a few eye candy to show! Before anything else, let me start off with Nathan Philipps Square's Toronto sign. The mandatory shot (in my opinion) when visiting Toronto; best taken during night time.
Let me start with this iconic AE86 was in display. Who ever owns this JDM, I personally congratulate you for an amazing job in restoring this and modifying this beautiful car. A well thought layout of the engine bay, and clean overall build.
How crazy is Importfest? Fitting a truck and a 53 feet trailer will do the trick!
Ger Reyes' S2K was a show stopper to say the least! It was part of PASMag's live Tuner Battle Ground competition via IG; moreover, he also runs this S2K in a race track. All he needs to do is uninstall a couple of mods from the trunk for weight reduction. Ger incorporates building his S2K with life lessons/advice to the next generation. Teaching them how life is similar to a project car; lots of haters and lots of hardships come in the way but powering through them will make you realize your goal whatever it maybe. Oh and he won TBGLive!
Everyone knows that a Honda Civic is one of the most versatile JDMs that exists, and this one doesn't disappoint. It even had it's own model car with it. From the hella flush wheel setup all the way to the engine, this Civic is definitely one of a kind. Just drool at that engine, so clean and shiny! And powerful, don't forget power!
Nissan GT-R, the car that shook the supercar world by storm, and it still did at Importfest! Unfortunately, I didn't get to talk to the owner of the car but this was enough for me to drool over.
Dedicated to Paul Walker, a well built Nissan R34 Skyline. There's nothing much to say to this car, I mean it is an R34 Skyline that in itself is already legendary. It was first seen in the movie 2Fast 2Furious, the second Fast and Furious movie franchise, from there nobody can stop its popularity. But for car enthusiasts know that is more than just a movie prop, it is just one of the many well balanced, and versatile Japanese sports car that can easily compete with the European sports cars market. Give this R34 a follow in IG, @R34Zach he has more cars other than this and a great IG account to follow.
Importfest's flagship is this red Lexus RC350 witha Rocket Bunny. Let this one picture do the talking (and writing).
370Z just went wide! By far the widest wheel fitting I've seen. I'm not sure what the specs of the wheels and tires are but it is still impressive how the owner got it to fit.
RSX beast! There was a tape preventing the general public inside the exclusive member-only of NextLevel; nonetheless, they positioned it low so that spectators can still view the builds. This was no exception, a beast of an RSX and the wide body just gives it a more aggressive look.
Somehow classic JDMs is what I'm into these days, I'm not sure why. I could've been a luxury sports cars fanboy but somehow it doesn't strike me as the old school JDMs especially when they are infused with modern tech. One example was this 70's Toyota Celica, first thing to notice is the huge supercharger and the large intake pipe dominates the engine bay. My eyes were just wide open when I saw this car.
Importfest had a few events going on, and one of them was the Breakdance Comp. These guys showed up and tore the floor with their footwork, and awesome breakdance skills. I went live for 40 minutes on Facebook for this event just because I know I won't be able to take in the action with just pictures. Check it out to see the video: https://www.facebook.com/angelo.cayanan/videos/10208702140344121/
Models, models, models! Specifically Steph Mi! I struggle to find words to describe her, it was the first time I met her in person and I was nervous. Until this day I kept thinking how I managed to get this shot of her just by asking if she could pose for a while for me. Congratulations in winning the Importfest 2016 Bikini Contest!
Importfest 2017? I'll keep checking their website for updates and maybe attend next years show. All I know is I had fun at Importfest and they live up to their motto. "The Biggest & Baddest"
