Canada’s largest custom and performance-oriented auto show takes place on the weekend at Toronto’s International Centre.

For decades, the Performance World Custom Car and Truck Show has offered some of the best for hardcore enthusiasts, and this year continues the tradition.

With more than 300,000 square feet in six buildings at the International Centre, Performance World will feature a bevy of custom, performance, and racing vehicles and displays.

Some of the highlights for 2010 include the popular Show and Shine competition, featuring Customs, Street Rods, Hot Rods, and trucks. A large section of the show is dedicated to auto racing, with race vehicles from the oval track, road circuit, and drag racing world.

The Sport Compact crowd has not been forgotten, with a large contingent of cars and related displays. Another area has been exclusively set aside for trucking enthusiasts, featuring pickups, vans, off-roading vehicles, and slammed mini-trucks.

Other notables at this year’s show include the 1932 Ford Roadster “Timeless,” fresh from the Detroit Autorama, Chuck Miller with his Zinger Semi and 1957 Isetta taxicab, and the Tuner Revolution in Hall 4.

Established in 1964, the Performance World Show will be held March 12-14. The IC’s location is on Airport Road. Show times are Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
