A single day event included seven hours of show/drift/drag/stunts and some drooling over one off customs in between, the Battle at the Border gets a different crowd every year. Mixed in with the local cars with custom body kits and airbrushing are some of the most amazing SEMA level cars, some are from local builders, others are on tour like Aaron Vaccar's Ford Fusion.

The annual event this year proved to be a staple in the automotive event scene to stay around for years to come. It is one of the only shows to see some amazing machines that we would never typically see here in Canada.

Tokyo Auto Salon 2016: Mihama-ku, Chiba. Japan

TAS 2016 was a bit of a renaissance for me. It was the 10th consecutive time I’d visited the event since arriving in Japan in 2005. And whilst I wished for things to be totally different, I am glad that much of what I’ve come to know and love hasn’t changed at all, whereas many other things have undergone transformation. That’s not to suggest the Tokyo Auto Salon is stale in any way, but you do get used to the rhythm and tempo of the event after having visited it so many times. The same faces, the same names —…

StanceWars 2016: Houston, TX

If you've seen the hundreds of videos on YouTube, you get a sense of what they're trying to accomplish: amazing cars, different locations, and just plain fun.
