2015 Kamloops Hot Nite in the City

For the 21st year, Kamloops hosts their annual Hot Nite in the City, where BC car enthusiasts drive in and the city closes 13 blocks for one of British Columbia’s biggest car shows. Featuring everything from hot rods to sport compacts to big rigs, HNIC is a massive gathering of cars and trucks representing nearly every generation and manufacturer you can imagine.

We had an opportunity to stop by this year to check out the action, and shoot some of the awesome cars at this event. It was tough to choose any favorites, as the range of vehicles at the show was immensely broad. Check out our coverage after the jump.

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.

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 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
