illmotion Sunday School 2014 Show Coverage Part 2


If you missed the original post, illmotion hosted the 4th annual Sunday School Show and Shine this weekend at the Max Bell Arena. We posted a big set of pictures in Part 1 and as promised we have included the rest of the pictures in this set.

As I mentioned in Part 1, there were a ton of amazing cars that made it out to the show for everyone to see and it is no different for Part 2. I’ve included some of my favorites, but there are many more in the gallery at the end of this post. Apologies to anyone that had a car entered in the show that was missed.

illmotion Sunday School 2014 Show Coverage Part 1


This past sunday, illmotion hosted the 4th annual Sunday School Show and Shine at the Max Bell Arena. As with every year, hundreds of cars descended on the parking lot where owners showcased their rides. One thing different this year however was the weather. Each year, it is normally scorching during the Sunday School Show and Shine, but this year it was a much more comfortable affair allowing people to get out from under their tents to talk cars. Roaming the parking lot it was great to see proud owners talk about their builds with each other and those that came down to check them out.

There were a ton of amazing work, and hopefully we captured a good cross section of the vehicles that were there. With limited time and the number of people checking out the cars in person, it was difficult to get everyone. We’ve broken up the post into two parts due to the sheer number, so check back tomorrow for the rest of the pictures.

Calgary Airport Trail Tunnel Grand Opening

The City of Calgary unveiled the Airport Tunnel, the first true tunnel in the city, to the public today by hosting a show and shine with car clubs around the city. Thousands made their way to the festivities, with huge lineups at the Westwinds C-Train station where anxious citizens waited to be packed into busses to shuttle them to the tunnel’s east entrance. Many of the local clubs were present, including ZR Auto and the Ferrari Club of Alberta. The cars lined the westbound lanes, giving a chance for Calgarians to get up close and personal with some amazing machinery.

Several of our very own members had their cars out at the show today, including the awesome Ferrari F50, powered by an engine derived from a 90’s era Formula One motor. With only 349 examples manufactured, it’s a rare sight to see on Calgary roads.

Much more exotics after the click.

Calgary Show and Shine Raises Money For Kenya

Women in Kenya face hardship and struggle more than most of us in Canada will ever know, and their lives are made exponentially more difficult if they become HIV-positive. The women are shunned and abandoned, left not only to fend for themselves, but for their children as well. Many women lack all of the necessary skills to care for their family and the children end up in orphanages. These women are then left to deal with HIV alone.

Living Positive Kenya (LPK) is a program designed to provide food, shelter and life skills to HIV-positive women in Kenya to ensure that they have all the tools required to live a healthy life and provide for their children, keeping them out of the orphanages and at home with their mothers. LPK provides a support group with other infected women, a place to live during the program, education in marketable skills and assistance in creating a business plan to ensure graduates become self-sufficient; all while children are in provided daycare.

Love In Action is a student group at the University of Calgary dedicated to fundraising for non-profit, non-Government organizations and they’ve created On Wheels For Kenya, a show and shine in Calgary, to help raise money for LPK. Registration is a minimum $10 donation and all makes and models of motor vehicle are welcome to enter. 100% of funds raised will go directly to Living Positive Kenya in order improve the conditions for families already in the program, and allow more families to join. We look forward to seeing a strong showing from illmotion and Poor Form among other Calgary clubs.

The event will be held on June 22nd, 2013 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on the East parking lots of McMahon Stadium, 138 Crowchild Trail N.W., Calgary, AB T2M 4R6
