Custom Decals Season Closer

Here’s one that I know people have been waiting on – photos from the Custom Decals YYC Season Closer! Shawn and the gang – together with Infamous, Kings Must Rise, So Scare, 403 Street Driven, and Thirty Three Ten – put on one heck of a “send-off” (don’t worry, there are still a few weeks left of car activities) for the 2020 season last weekend with a massive gathering at their shop.

I think it’s safe to say we all expected this to be big – with nice weather and many people itching for anything car-related to do – but even so it left us a bit surprised at just how big it got. All in, with 5 separate lots featuring cars there for the event, this was easily the size of a Driven/Sunday School type of show.

Like with one of those events, the variety here didn’t disappoint either. I was quite pleased to find a few Fieros taking part, a couple of supercars casually rolled in, an ex-SEMA build (yellow Hellcat) was on display, there was some classic American muscle, and even lowriders could be found. Of course however there was also no shortage of our generation’s poster cars and favoured canvases, with some featuring jaw-dropping spec sheets and parts collections.

Now, I was going to check out the event anyway but Shawn very kindly invited me to bring down the S15 specifically to show it off, and even saved a VIP spot for it up front by the main tents. I stayed up late the night before to get the door panels back in and deal with the bulk of the remaining dash wiring nightmares in the car – so that it was much closer to being fully complete again and wouldn’t be displayed with bare doors – and am very glad I did!

That’s because the teams behind it all had arranged for some trophies to be handed out, making things a bit more interesting. Along with awards for the Top Ten of the day there were also six individual Judge’s Choice awards, and of these 16 beautiful pieces some ended up being the cherry on top for a few of us. Yolanda and Jay both nabbed Top Tens for their cars while the S15 surprisingly came home with the Judge’s Choice from 403 Street Driven! Given this was the first ever major event the car had attended following the makeover, this was an amazing treat.

I ended up spending the bulk of the day with the girls from Redline Sorority – as we either wandered around to check out the show or took breaks in the shade along with some of the SPWC crew – and all in I don’t think it could have been improved upon in any way. We all had a blast, there was free food to keep us going, plenty to check out, doggos to pet, and we got to bring home some souvenirs for a few of the cars too.

With all that said, I hope you enjoy my set of photos from the event. Congratulations to everyone involved for what was a smashing success, and congrats again to Shawn and the team for the continued growth of Custom Decals!
