Default 52 cars met in Toronto

What a weekend, good times, lots of miles, tons of food and enough superchargers and turbos to last a while.

The Ontario Quebec Club Grand Prix (www.oqcgp.com) had their annual BBQ in Toronto this past weekend. I got together with some of the guys I know and made the 525 kilometer trip (328 miles) on Sunday and stayed overnight.

Seeing 52 cars together, most of them GPs with a couple of Regals, a Monte Carlo and my Bonneville was an impressive sight. Mixed in the gang was also 2 turbo GPs with the kit from 3800performance.com. Kevin Margitta is the Toronto connection of DHP and he is also the one who developed the turbo kit mentioned above.

I had a great time, got up at 4:45 AM on Sunday and had my last beer at 2:00 AM Monday morning .

Here'* a quick picture of our convoy while on a pitstop, you should be able to pick me out;



Cheers,

Thanks for the compliment, we spent some time detailing the cars in the parking lot first. Unfortunately the car has plenty of flaws if you see it in person but when it all Zainoed it looks good.

A couple more pictures;

Check this out, we go for supper and take my car. I end up having a few beers and my buddy drives back to the hotel. Look how he parks my car, even after 2 attempts;



A little different perspective of the same cars;

Great pics Foghorn, looks like good times
What did you guys do there? Was there a drag or mod event or was it just a cruise and lunch thing?

Yeah, that 04 Comp G has quite abit done to it. I've kinda been watching the car take shape over on ClubGP and I must say it is one friggin sweet car. I forget if he'* been to the track (seems like he was at IDDV) , but what does he run?

Looks like it wouldv'e been fun there but there was a mini MN BC meet this last weekend I attended.

Nice gathering there.
I remember when MNCGP hosted their Midwest Annual Gathering, don't remember how many cars total showed up but I heard 77 was the peak number cars.
