Driven to Perform the annual motor sports auto show is happening again this year on July 16 at the Rocky Mountaineer Station in Vancouver. Soon as there is more info available I’ll post it on my blog.
The last event that I was able to go to was back in 2008 and it was an awesome event to go to. To see pictures from Driven to Perform in 2008 check out the links below

The 32nd Annual Coast Swap Meet is this May 28 and 29, 2010. It’s a good place to buy and barter old car parts and meet a great bunch of people. I’ve attended a bunch of times in the past few years and always likes what I’ve seen so if you get a chance go check it out this year. If you click on the image below you will get sent to the main website for the swap meet which has more info.
I was checking into any more info about this years Driven to Perform show at BC Place Stadium and stumbled upon some bad news. The DTP show is suspended this year due to the global economic situation and the auto industry taking such a big hit. I was really eager to go and see this year’s event and this news is really disappointing to hear but more importantly lots of businesses that were suppose to be at this years show will definetly be affected by this news. Hopefully next year the situation will get better and the Driven to Perform event will be back at BC Place Stadium to inspire and wow future car enthusiasts.

There are 2 car shows coming up this year that I am excited to go to again. The first one is the Vancouver International Auto Show which is on March 31 to April 5 and the 2nd one is the DriventoPerform event on May 30th. Once again I will take lots of pictures and post them on the site.
As you may have noticed my posts have been very scarce this month as the winter weather slowed things down on my RC D16 Turbo Build and I’m also trying to save money for the machining of the block but after the holidays my budget is really tight. In the last few months the world financial sector has been very shaky which has made me think about tightening my spending habbits but at the same time I believe anything can be achieved if you put your mind into it. I still want to have a Turbo D16 Honda Civic this summer but will see how things turn out so stay tuned to the site for more updates.
