Default Toronto's Motion Custom Car Show pics

Although I was somewhat disapointed in the show, I would like to share the pictures that I believe are HAMB friendly.

Did that show change hands ?

Seems strange to change the name of a show
that has been running for probably 20+ years.

Dizzy Dean sold Motion, which became Performance World.
I assume Dizzy kept the name.
Dizzy passed away a couple years ago, IIRC.

Which doesn't explain why Speedorama got changed to Motion.

Speedorama is usually held before Performance World. Did they just come up with another car show held in the same place?

Thanks for sharing the pics, some nice cars there. Looks like the show was pretty small as expected.

Gary Wallace, the guy who ran Performance World years ago, and then Speedorama, bought the rights to the "Motion" car show name from Dizzy Dean's widow, apparently. That's the story I got from my brother, who works at Horton Hot Rods.


cheers

The show was alot smaller then I expected. Not that many vendors, and to many of them trying to sell you snake oil. Was still nice to be around cool cars which is a sign that spring is in the air. Weather in Toronto was perfect.

If you want the right answers go to the source, the oil in front of the cars is part of the goddy bag from Quaker State and must be displayed in order to receive consideration for the awards, Yes the show was Speedorama and was ahead of the other but with the economy and the short turn around in a new partnership it was decided to go this year, holding back would have endangered the sponsorships involved. Dizzy gave me the name two years after he sold the show to the original owners of pw, they didn't like the name, this pissed Dizzy off, I did not buy the name from Dizzy's widow, the show was not small the building held 180 cars in competition, just short of what the other show had in all of it's buildings, Motion gave out the largest cash package in Canada $23,000. in cash, find another show that did that.Like I said go to the source for the answers not the rumor mill. thanks
