Megaspeed Custom Car Show Toronto
Permalink  
 


For those who were wondering what happened to the March car show, there is a new show in town. The other show simply closed down. The new show has a new owner with some new ideas and the same date, the second weekend of March at the same location, the International Center. Follow the link below to see more about the show.

I have been working this show since it started out as Motion Auto Show in 1974 and I'll be there again this year, taking photos and sitting in with the artists and pinstripers. I'll also be painting some of my decorative gear shift knobs and selling photos and DVDs.

Come on out and see some spectacular cars and watch the pinstripers and artists create car art right in front of you...and buy something :)

So do you think it would be worth driving down from Ottawa? If yes maybe we should try a Saturday meet.

I'm going to this show. Were putting 2 rods in it. The 31 Chev Sedan Delivery and my 30 Ford Tudor.
The new show owner is Mike Holmes from Holmes on Homes.
Should be a good show, I enjoyed it last year.

See you guys there!

Mike lives in the nieghbourhood, never knew he was promoting this. I may see him Friday night at a local fundraiser for our new arena.

Is Performance World dead? Same venue.

1 - Mike Holmes is NOT the owner of Megaspeed (I know the owner and he is not Mike) but he is one of the feature attractions. Mike does own a couple of hot rods, both 32 Ford roadsters, 1 red, 1 blue.
2 - yes, Performance World is dead :(
3 - the show is shaping up very well and should be a good show. The new owner has a few ideas he is putting into the show and it mat take a year or two or three to get everything implemented.
4 - don't miss it :)

El,Cheapo here, whats the door rate??? Hope it's not like the car show downtown?? That was a HIT in the wallet, for any family to go to,gas,parking & entrance fee!!!!! These promoters have to take that into consideration, if it's too costly,people can't afford to go!!!!

The admission has not been announced yet but you can expect about $20 for an adult. Check the website to see if there is a discount coupon available. There is free parking at the International Center.

I usually took advantage of the discount coupon for Performance World. Saves half usually. Must be used on off hours but I like that anyway.

I hope the guy with the shoe shine prodcuts is there, I buy that every time, great stuff.

I'm still undecided on whether to make the trip from Ottawa.  Historically the show has been pretty good.  Hopefully the new owners put on a quality show.

FYI...the show managers were in Detroit this past weekend at the Autorama checking out a few cars that are coming to Megaspeed. I think it's going to be a good show.

I should be there most of the weekend with Dads AA/Altered in the Piston Pushers Display. They are doing a scale version of the old club house. Should be a great show from what I have heard.

You guys are making this sound really great, I'm looking forward to it as it sounds like a must see for us Toronto boys. Cost is minimal when you live in the big smoke. I spilled more than $100 at Traders last week DQ-Pete.

I always liked Performance World although it lost a few car guys over the years.
It's $30 to enter a car and it's a great show in my opinion.
I've heard from some of the guys working the show they have some new ideas for this year and I think I heard something about a Bikini contest or maybe wet t-shirt contest...not 100% though.

I will even be there showing the drawing's for my new project which will be first time shown for next years show...you won't want to miss next years show!!!

I will be at the booth marked 'Brush Rush North' with the pinstripers and other artists for most of the weekend in hall 3. I am also doing photography over the weekend as well as some work at Horton's Street Rods at the front hall. If you guys want to meet up, I suggest you find me at the pinstripers booth and go from there. If you want a place to eat before or after the show, go down Airport Road to 'Zet's' diner, it's open 24/7 and the food is good and affordable.

Looks like I'll be coming up for Sat for a few hours with the whole family in tow. Looking forward to checking out the Piston Pusher display,(too bad you won't be there Shaggn but I'm sure we'll catch up another time!),and everything else that's going to be there. Sounds like it's going to be a good show. Chris, I'll make sure we swing by and say hey. (Missed you twice @ Autorama!)

Just became a Piston Pusher tonight! They are having a club photo taken at the MegaSpeed club display at 1:00 pm on Saturday so I won't be able to do the 1pm meet and greet thing. Have we decided on a time to meet up yet. Would maybe 11:00 am work better so it could spill into a lunch gathering? The Piston Pusher display sounds over the top. Its reported to be 5000 sq. ft. of club history and iron. I don't want to miss out on the photo op as it will be a historic event for the members. Biggest club undertaking since the 50's!!!
