Calgary International Auto Show 2014

Returning to the Calgary Auto Show this year was a lot of fun. From checking out the new lineup at Jaguar to comparing the latest supercars, there was no shortage of stunning automobiles to focus on. I loved being in able to get up close and actually sit in a lot of the vehicles to get a feel for them. I was curious about the new Chrysler 300 to compare it to mine, and similarly we did this with almost all of the cars that we were familiar with or had an interest in. The Calgary Auto Show is one of the largest automotive exhibitions in Western Canada, and if you have a chance to go in the future it really is worth your time. It made for a great afternoon - we had a blast!

DeLorean from Back to the Future

Ever since creating my Buick to the Future shorts in film school, the Back to the Future films have remained some of my all-time favorites. The pop culture surrounding the movies, and the DeLorean especially, have continued to pique my interest over the years. You can then imagine my excitement when I heard that a DeLorean replica would be on display as part of Heritage Park's Cars of the Big & Small Screen exhibit.

With its flux capacitor intact, a pair of Nike Air Mags in the passenger seat, and the iconic 'Outatime' license plate on the back, this DeLorean was clearly the centrepiece of the entire display. A faux time machine packed with this much novelty is hard to beat. I got some pretty sweet pictures too.
