Car Shows & Other Events / World Of Wheels 2016 - Mar 18-20
« on: January 16, 2016, 01:31 PM »
Quick update: I talked to Bob tonight and the show is just about full. They've actually increased the car count and floor size even bigger than planned. There is still room for a few more cars, so if you've got something top notch please let me know so I can get you in touch with the organizers.



Hi folks,

I'll try to keep this short,

A couple weeks ago I met with Bob Chubala, Chairman of Winnipeg World of Wheels and formerly President of MAAC (Manitoba Association of Auto Clubs).

Bob and I talked about this years World of Wheels show, as well as Winnipeg's ever growing tuner/import/sport compact scene/whatever you want to call it.

This year the World of Wheels show will be twice the size of previous years. The older generation of car enthusiasts realize that we are the future of the car scene in this province and they are very welcoming to having us play a more active part in shows, events, etc.

With that said, they are very welcome to having a decent amount of tuner cars present at World of Wheels this year.

The intent here is to get people together and promote in a positive light the huge tuner/import/sport compact scene in this province as well as give us positive exposure to the older generation of car enthusiasts and to the general public. It would be great for us engage people who may be interested but may not know about the many positive, organized and safe events put on throughout the summer.

We are looking for a good to have a good representation of the local tuner community and not necessarily just show cars. I would love to see some show cars, some clean unique drivers, some drag, some drift, some autox, some new, some old, etc. A good, full representation of what we all love.

Anyways, I don't know everybody and every car in this city. If you feel your car may fit in, or you know someone with a car who you think may be a good fit to display at the show please post here, or let me know and I will get in touch with them!

Thanks,

Al

Looking to upgrade my audio system, so I am selling the bulk of my previous system. There is new and used stuff as indicated. Everything is in good working and cosmetic order. The used equipment was lightly used for 4 months only. I have been into car audio both as a hobbyist and an industry employee for almost 15 years now, so everything was installed professionally and properly and was not abused.

New items are new, in box and packaging. Used items include original boxes and manuals.

No pics at this time, but you can easily google what everything looks like if you wish.

1. SOLD

Visions sells the sub new for $388 + tax
Price: $300 obo




The HDP1 amp amp a perfect match for the HX300D sub.

Detailing / Tire shine that's not a spray?
« on: August 04, 2015, 10:56 AM »
Years ago when my car was on the road I had a tire shine that came in a bottle and was applied with a sponge. It was a semi gloss (not that super gloss wet look) and it smelled like grape. I can't remember what kind it was or where I got it..

I went to Part Source on the weekend and all they had was various tire shines in spray form. I don't care for the sprays because it gets everywhere, on the wheels, paint, floor of the garage, etc..

Any recommendations for a decent tire shine that's not a spray?

Car Shows & Other Events / Morden Corn & Apple Car Show - Aug 23rd
« on: August 02, 2015, 12:27 AM »
I'll be heading out there for the show with a couple friends. Show is from 1-4pm. Registration opens at 11am I think. Probably going to head there early. I'll have a 10'x20' canopy for shade at the show, bring you own lawn chairs.

If anybody else wants to come out post in here and maybe we can organize a drive out. It's only about 50mins from the South West corner of the perimeter.

Edit: OK, so my plan is to leave from the Esso on Hwy 3 just outside the perimeter at 8:30am.

Reviews / Auto Parts Center - Notre Dame (AN Fittings and Line)
« on: July 31, 2015, 09:02 AM »
If you're ever looking for AN fittings and line, quick, these guys probably have it in stock!

They stock a ton of misc AN fittings, braided lines, hoses, etc. The place is literally stuffed from floor to roof if you've ever gone in there.

They had what I needed in stock for my fuel system lines, for my oil feed & drain from my supercharger, fuel filler relocation, etc.

Hi folks I am selling a polished upper intake plenum for a VQ35DE. It will fit 350Z and G35 with the DE motor.

It is a used part that has been refinished and polished.

It was a wrong part shipped to me by the supplier. I agreed to sell it locally for the supplier to save him the shipping costs of sending it back. Because of this you will be paying the supplier directly via paypal and picking up the plenum from me.

The supplier wants $200 usd for it which is a hell of a deal considering you're saving shipping your plenum to him to be polished, return shipping and duty!

Price drop: $250

These sell new for $375 USD + exchange + shipping + duty & taxes and a 6-8 week wait. Very close to $550 CAD once you get it in your hands. Get one today for way less money and no wait!
