A car show wouldn't be a car show without a few classic hot rods and even some custom sport compacts being thrown into the mix. We simply couldn't help but draw several similarities between the passion car enthusiasts seem to show for restoring classic cars and tuning modern sport compacts, whatever your preference may be.
Modern cars owe much of their styling and layout to their ancestry, and we always enjoy studying the retro eye candy that modern cars often pay homage to. While at the same time, we can't ignore the popularity that still exists for customizing tuner cars in today's automotive culture.
That's why we captured the following pair of galleries for your viewing pleasure, as we bring you the highlights from the Hot Rod Canadian Builder Showcase and the Sport Compact Evolution displays at the 2013 Toronto Auto Show.
