It was a great scene last night at Gumball, met some fellow maxbimmer members and some from E46 Toronto. The atmosphere and crowd was cool and the cars were insane! I love some of the vinyl wraps, makes me want to do it to my ride.

I just came across from Etobicoke to Burlington and counting 5 OPP sitting on the side of the road waiting...

I heard on the radio one guy was caught 2 times doing over 170! wtf. So did they let him go the first time? Wasn't so lucky the second time.


Aaaahhh.. FOOL!

I couldnt say it better myself....Gallardo was the supercar beater from what I saw. Your right about the atmosphere, it was unreal being in Toronto.

Did anyone get to see Tony Hawk and Xzibit? Me and Sanj couldnt spot em...

Im not gonna lie, the drive home after being there was so boring I passed out (and I was dead tired).

Sanj, Im ordering the CF wrap...you want in?

Just got home from walking around at the Skylon Tower in NF where they stopped for a while. I merged onto the highway right behind an F430 and a GT2 and there was a Bently GT and a Morgan right behind me. Awsome sound from the Ferrari. At the tower one guy got arrested for doing donuts in the parking lot. haha.
