Street Wheelers Winter Show & Shine 2014

Pontiac Tempest

While I’m not a huge fan of indoor shows as it makes photography difficult the Street Wheelers Winter Show & Shine 2014 is a nice automotive related break from winter. This is the time around it was even larger than last year’s event.

Pontiac Tempest

I quite liked this Pontiac Tempest even though the drive train is very obviously different than stock.

1962 Ford Falcon

Speaking of engine swaps this little Falcon holds a big surprise.

A Nissan RB20DET turbo charged inline six engine.

The additional power must be a challenge for those skinny little stock size tires.

1991 Nissan Skyline

This 1991 Nissan Skyline goes the other way with American power in a Japanese chassis.

1991 Nissan Skyline - V8 LS-series engine

The four door Skyline has a General Motors LS-series V8 engine swapped in likely to piss off fan boys on both sides of the fence.

1951 Chrysler New Yorker

Not all the cars were radically modified as this lovely 1951 Chrysler New Yorker shows.

1952 Meteor Customline

This Canadian market 1952 Meteor Customline convertible was definitely one of the highlights. Only sold in the Canadian market it is extremely rare with production likely hovering around a hundred units.

The rear wheel cover is incorrect but the wheel skirts help mask it.

1996 Rover Mini

This Rover Mini had to be one of the newest cars on display.

1970 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback

Beyond some non-stock wheels and a few other custom touches this 1970 Volkswagen Type 3 Squareback looks to be quite a survivor.

1973 Toyota Celica

There were a few in progress builds as well like this 1973 Toyota Celica which will be a rocket once completed with a twin turbo Lexus 4.0L V8.

Lots of Yellow - Hot Rod with trailer - 1935 Dodge

Someone likes yellow. 1935 Dodge hot rod certain has a yellow theme with a matching trailer. A classic bike plus all the camping accessories complete the picture.

1965 Volksrod

    Hi there, I came across a picture that you took of a 1963 Buick Wildcat in Calgary. I have been searching for my Family’s Buick for years. Bought new by my Father in 1963 and sold in the 80’s. very unique car as when I was driving it I had lots of items under hood chromed. Valve covers, oil pan, fan shroud etc. If you know anything about this car I would very much appreciate the help.
