ON THE SCENE

THE EAST COAST TURNS UP AND TURNS OUT

We shot out to Toronto for the an­nual Majestics BBQ, and af­ter a few de­tours it kicked off just like we had ex­pected. Af­ter un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances, they had to find an al­ter­nate lo­ca­tion, choos­ing Marie Cur­tis Park. Had this hap­pened 10 years ago it would have been a fi­asco but thanks to so­cial me­dia and a few well-placed phone calls, they were able to spread the word and get the squad back in for­ma­tion.

With heavy clouds rolling in on the hori­zon, it would have been more than enough to scare off any­one in Cali, but not the T-Dots. Even a few light sprin­kles didn’t stop the show and be­fore we knew it the park­ing lot was full of big smiles and badass cars.

Most of the cars were from Toronto but a few took the trek, among them was Lux­u­ri­ous from Mon­treal, Detroit Majestics, and Those Dudes from Ohio. A small show com­pared to those held in Los An­ge­les, this show was about qual­ity over quan­tity. With some epic show­pieces and some in­cred­i­bly de­tailed cars, the show was worth its weight in gold.

But check this, the Majestics hired a gourmet cook to pro­vide free break­fast burg­ers for ev­ery­one in at­ten­dance, and lemme tell you they killed it. Soon af­ter, the hop be­gan and it was time for “Pinky” (the Monte Carlo from Ohio) to go in, and man he didn’t dis­ap­point. The hop ended with Skinny (Switches & Thangs) hop­ping his Town Car and af­ter hit­ting back bumper 13 times con­sec­u­tively the crowd went wild.

By day’s end, the award cer­e­mony be­gan and Lux­u­ri­ous Car Club walked away with the Most Mem­bers Award, and with the show wrapped up it’s safe to say that we’re look­ing for­ward to head­ing back to The Six in hopes of a re­peat of a must-at­tend event.
