It seems that every generation of custom car hobbyist has a different concept of what makes for a ‘Cool Ride.’ For some, it’s the bare bones, open-wheeled and roofless classic ’32 Ford Hot Rod. Others will say that nothing competes with a thundering piece of Detroit ‘muscle.’ And the latest incarnation seems to be that of a Modified Tuner car, vehicles that rely more on electronic technology than mechanical attributes.

The Spring Fever Modified Cars and Culture presentation will be on display again this year at Toronto’s International Centre as part of the 7th annual Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by Ebay Motors Canada. The show runs April 29, 30 and May 01, 2022.

“We’ve been putting on this part of the show since 2016, so we have a pretty good idea what works for the Motorama visitors,” noted Spring Fever Organizer Kristine Hill. “We have an amazing line-up of vehicles, everything from the classic to modern Tuners – cars from the 1980s to the current model year. Naturally, a lot of our cars are Imports, but we’ll have a modified Austin Mini in the display, as well as some trucks and motorcycles. And visitors should come by and check out the many really high-level builds.”

Determined to keep the Spring Fever fresh and appealing to the Motorama visitors, Hill has found an amazing collection of ‘First Time Shown’ vehicles, sufficient to satisfy even the most discerning Modified car aficionados.

“The look for the cars this year involves a lot of colour, something that reflects a happy vibe, said Hill. “There will be some truly spectacular wraps on cars at Spring Fever; some really eye-catching stuff.”

With the growing appeal of vehicle wraps, Spring Fever visitors will have the opportunity to watch wrapping demos, courtesy of Optimum Wraps, at various times throughout the weekend. Returning to the Motorama show this year and setting up station in the Spring Fever area are a tattoo booth, assorted clothing vendors along with several Tuner-related automotive and merchandise booths.

For any Modified car enthusiast, it means a great deal to take top spot in a performance test. However, at Spring Fever, it will be the visual aspect of the hobby that will be recognized with awards made in such categories of Best Workmanship, Overall Presentation, Best Paint, Best Wrap, Best Engine Bay and a Best of Show and BoS runner-up.

Concluded Hill, “The decisions about the awards will be made by an experienced panel of judges, people who are familiar with the hobby and know what to look for. Our goal will be to showcase and honour only the very best vehicles, allowing the show attendees the opportunity to immerse themselves in the very best that our community has to offer.”

The Spring Fever Awards will be presented on Sunday afternoon, May 01, 2022. For tickets and show info, visit MotoramaShow.com.
