Importfest Performance's Year One Celebration

Big show Saturday, retail shop anniversary Sunday

Aug 1, 2018

While the main attraction of Importfest takes place Saturday from 11am to 10pm in dotwntown Toronto, it doesn't mean the weekend of fun was over after the lights of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre were turned off. Following Importfest, the main organizers hosted a free car meet and open house at its new facility in Scarborough, a 20-minute drive from the city. Importfest's shop opened a year ago when the staff transformed their expertise and experience in the scene into a full-fledged, one-stop shop for Toronto locals. The 6,000 sq ft facility is where you can go to pick up anything from bolt-on parts and wheels 'n tires, to actual engine work. They've also put a strong focus into making sure customer cars are prepared for the show and street, hence why you'll find services like Ceramic Pro, car detailing, tinting, paint protection, and vehicle wraps readily available.

Our visit to Importfest's new headquarters couldn't have been better as we were greeted with some of the top cars from the previous day's show in the parking lot, as well as witnessing a good crowd on hand to check out live drift demos in their makeshift skid pad. Even local hero Peter Chriskopoulos, a pro drifter in the DMCC series, gave an exceptional demonstration in his 2JZ-powered S13.

Importfest's shop is literally a mancave dream come true, with a lot of time and money spent to give it a high-end look and feel while being incredibly clean and very spacious. It's a nice departure from the old-school shops we're used to seeing with old parts and tools lying around everywhere like a cheap swap meet.

If you ever find yourself out in the Six, be sure to make the quick trip to Importfest Performance. You'll be impressed by not only how they've arranged their shop, but also how they've made a name for themselves in Canada.
