Eastern Canadian motorsports enthusiasts deflected some winter blues last weekend during Toronto’s Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo…

As is always the case for that marquee annual off-season happening – drag racers played an important part.  Below is a photo essay — including just some of the event’s many highlights.

Lyle & Mary Ann Williams displayed their stunning “Shock Therapy” Firebird TAFC from Strathroy ON.

That’s Karbelt’s VP – Kevin Dundas — who once again deserves credit for a huge role in the Motorama event’s KARS Expo show portion for performance industry suppliers.

Senior Moments Motorsports team driver Phil Nedham was on hand with his USDRS circuit T/D – helping to spread important men’s health awareness.

We were very impressed by this cool turbocharged ’67 Pro Street Camaro owned by Angelo Frabca (Brampton ON)
