An East Coast Tradition: Speed Sport East


Share

Since its conception in 1974, Speed Sport East has marked the beginning of the season for race fuel, tire smoke, and late-night parking lot hangouts among friends.

More than Canada’s longest running indoor car show, Speed Sport East is an event that bridges the gaps between all aspects of car culture. Age, style, function, and form are represented here in every shape and color. From track monsters, to hard-parkers, classics to future classics — they all find harmony within the grounds for a short 72 hours.

While the event primarily emphasizes on classics and restomods, I wanted to take the opportunity to share a different point of view — one of my own generation. Immediately upon stepping onto the floor, the shadow cast by the ever-growing new generation becomes apparent in its size.

On a more personal note, I would like to say thank you to everyone I spoke to at the show. More important than the cars are the people who make car culture in Atlantic Canada what it is. I’m proud to see that we collectively continue to push the envelope and develop in ways we were told weren’t possible.

In the moments captured below, there exists a narrative that is beyond my own words. It is intangible, but it is something every car enthusiast has experienced. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did capturing them.


 

Father and son wait to join the growing queue.
