Default No DTP in Van this year...

I asked my friend who helps put the show together, if he needed any 'filler' this year (same idea as a seat filler on Oscar night). He told me that Toyo, the biggest sponsor, either couldn't or wouldn't sponsor the show in Vancouver this year.

Not too sure why. Sounded like he didn't wanna say, so I didn't ask. It's still on in Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg, but that's too much of a drive for me...

even though there may be a lot of "rice" at these shows they are great for the "tuner" industry.....without stuff like these events we would not have as many parts/etc available to us....so it really isn't a meh.....

and besides there's usually some bad ass cars at these shows (never been the DTP in vancouver, but i've been to many HIN, etc)....stop being so smarmy and go check it out if it comes back 2010.....you'll most likely have a good time and see some cool stuff....

but honestly tho, I don't think last year's DTP was exciting at all. I think the best it had to offer was Misa Campo and Kaba Modern.

just seems like the cars didn't get any exciting to check out.

As much as I'm not a show guy, DTP will be missed around here.
I'm shocked as to why they're having it in butt**** Winnipeg, and the Edmonton hood' and not Van?

Still a meh, most of the companies that get good publicity out of car shows are the ones that provide bling factor. I've yet to see a whiteline booth at a car show Mitsubishi/garrett isn't going to stop making turbo, nismo isn't going to stop making injectors, etc etc.

Plus cool air intakes, Dominic.


Truth, DTP probably lacked local sponserhip funding and the numbers down last year didnt' help.

Just guessing. I used to be a serious supporter of these events but that was 8 years ago. Kinda like Car Stereo shows / Western Regional IASCA shows of that past.


(Youngsters will look at this post with a :what:?)
