Made the drive from Ontario Friday night, mostly uneventful except for the loss of a front lip on Brandon’s car, via some large Porcupine roadkill. We made it to the hotel in Montreal around 2:30am, and after seeing the lot full of cars, was too stoked to sleep. Brandon went to grab some shots, and I’m glad he did.
The next morning, the weather was perfect.
We arrived a little late and there was a decent line to get in, which we chose to skip by foot.
Since Eurokracy is mainly a Euro car event this post is mostly European cars. But since the Eurokracy guys don’t discriminate, and neither do we, there will be another post dedicated to the Japanese cars.
I was hoping this event was going to be pretty enjoyable, but I was in for a pleasant surprise. Many pleasant surprises.
A preview of whats below
But more on these later.
The quality at this show was almost overwhelming, it became apparent quickly that even with three of us we’d have trouble capturing everything.
I feel I should mention the women in Montreal are very nice too..
I wish I could say the same for her mixing.
This dude used me as a clipping point.
I have a feeling this isn’t a real RWB wide body, but it was still nice to see.
I asked the owner to close the bonnet, but could only bang off a few shots through the crowd before the lid was re-opened.
But I guess he keeps it open for a reason.
And the interior.
It didn’t disappoint.
And neither did this thing.
I wish I could have got a proper shot of this rad bug rod thing.

It felt like we had just started shooting and cars were leaving, everywhere. Dope ones.
I think all the partying the night before sent people home early.
Unfortunately for us late arrivers that made shooting comprehensive coverage difficult.
Gorgeous, clean examples, everywhere.
We barley sat down all day trying to capture everything. Too many nice cars, and not enough time.
Kurt managed to find time to shoot some details.
The shifters got me feelin’ feelings.
The trickle of cars leaving turned into a heavy flow.
So many cars eluded us somehow. The venue, ICar, is huge. It felt a little anti-climactic to watch all the cars leaving before we had a chance to really capture them, but none the less we were stoked on the day.
Having deemed the day done, we ended our last lap here.
It may be the most photogenic car I’ve ever shot. Every curve is perfect.
Dare I say it would look amazing layed out?
To wrap things up, there’s not much to say.
Eurokracy was epic.
The next morning I couldn’t resist grabbing some moody rain shots.
This infiniti hints at the next post, which will be purely the japanese cars of the day.
If you thought this post was extensive, we’ve got close to 300 proper captures of this event, the full albums are on Flickr.
