At last year’s Megaspeed show i had one of my most memorable car-related experiences by getting to see Ken Block’s car in person. No such luck this year. In fact, i found this year’s show to be smaller and not quite as good as last year’s show. I am sad to say this is true for most trade shows that i attend…they all seem to be shrinking in size and quality and i say this based on attending about 15-20 shows per year.
My highlight this year was at the Rockford Fosgate booth. I am a huge fan of their products and had a great system years ago, back in the “if your mirrors aint shakin, you got taken” era lol. Anyway, i tried their “pressure chamber” display…basically they give you hearing protection, shut the door and then blast you with 10,000 watts of low frequency bass! there is a “panic button” in case..i could se why as i felt a bit nauseous lol…i asked repeatedly if i will still be able to have kids before going in (they said yes) but i did not film it as they warned of possible affects to my camera.
More from RF.
there were lots of sound systems around as well
here is one in action..nice touch on the Princess floormats
Next, i liked Millionaire Racing…especially the C63, 911 Turbo, Bentley…and the girls 🙂
One of my favourite cars of all time, Acura Integra Type R
This M3 is quite well known among local circles..i believe it has around 650HP
A little more subtle…and badass
Classy wood clad engine in this Jag
This lamborghini was also at last year’s show…except then it was painted as a police car!!
vs. last year
Nowhere near as many GTRs as last year
But plenty for Corvette and Mustang fans
including another old school favourite of mine..notch back
Speaking of old school, a friend of mine had one of these (and its predecessor too)
more tuner cars..note the exhaust, Beast Mode sticker, and vanity plate on the first one
lol this looks familiar..if you saw my bicycle show review a few weeks ago
a few celebrities on site for pics / autographs
accessories for sale
and last but not least, more show ladies! I did not stay for the Megaspeed swimsuit competition (as i did last year) but did have a preview.
