“Don’t call it a come back, I’ve been here for years.” – L.L. Cool J
You may not know this, but DODOlogic has been here for years — four years, to be exact. After all that time, we finally decided we were grown up enough for a new site.
The question of when to launch the new site posed its own issues. Four years is a long time to hold onto something and launching the new site should commemorate something. We’ve hit a few milestones in the last few months and seen some pretty cool things over the years, but we decided to dance with the one who brought us.
If you would have told me four years ago that DODOlogic would one day play host to one Saskatchewan’s biggest car meets, I would have cursed you for a liar. Thanks to Works Engineering, Odd Man Out Performance, Auto Logics, Redline Society, and of course Bon Burger, for making Fallout 2013 happen.
Getting to be at a meet on my home turf is always great. It’s very rare I get to hang out with so many friends at meet. I find these meets are more about the community than about the cars themselves. But don’t get me wrong, the cars are a nice bonus.
It’s crazy to see just how far these meets have come since we started doing them. Our first meet was only 88 cars, and we’ve now grown to 325 cars, food trucks and a lot full of other randomness. This randomness includes Paul Rommelaere, doing that thing he does on bikes at every car meet.
Since we started, the Sask. scene has grown at an alarming rate. Years ago, you would have been hard pressed to find any done up Ruckus’ at these meets, and this time around there was a pretty impressive showing.
As I said, it’s the people who make these events great for me. Colin Gallagher was nice enough to pose next to his Toyota Soarer to show me some non-aggressive wheel fitment. Well, truth be told, Colin didn’t want me to take this photo so I yelled at him until he was okay with it.
I will leave you with one of my favourite cars in the province right now: Evan Bahr ‘s IS300 with a 2JZGTE swap. I hope everyone who attended Fallout 2013 enjoyed themselves, and I hope everyone reading this enjoys the new site.
