The World of Wheels has been my favorite car show since I was just a kid & have been going through-out the years. No can say I am not a romantic as the show was where I took my wife on our 1st date, after that you know she was a keeper. I always look forward to see the cool rides & old racing friends.

ENGINE BUILDING COMPETITION
Friday: 5 – 9 PM | Practice & Qualifying
Saturday: 11 AM – 4 PM & 5 – 9 PM | Qualifications & Competition
Sunday: 12 – 4 PM | Finals
My name is Zane Southgate, President of Zeebs Performance Restorations INC. here in Chesteremere, AB. We do restorations, sheetmetal, paint, suspension and brake upgrades on early American vehicles.
We are hosting an engine assembly race known as the Battle of the Technicians at the local Auto Value World of Wheels in Calgary, Alberta. With the assistance of the Draggins Rod and Custom Car Club, from Saskatoon, SK. This is the inaugural race in Calgary. We are bringing this competition to the show to entertain the spectators and we look to have this event keep their interest staying at the show and viewing the cars at a more leisurely pace between the competition runs. Think as a spectator to an event and out of the corner of the building you hear an engine fire up with open exhaust. As a car nut, you’re going to look for the source of the nose, see the technicians huddling around the engines. Wondering what is going on, you take a seat and watch the action of the competition before you. This engine race has been run for the past 18 years at the Draggins Rod and Custom Car Show in Saskatoon, SK every Easter. The race consists of a head to head layout, with teams of two technicians using only select hand tools. The current record for assembly and the five second running, is seven minutes, 41 seconds. The engine is a fuel injected 305, and the contestants will have Friday and Saturday to practice in 1 hour time slots. The elimination style finals to conclude on Sunday. We start with a short block with pistons crank and cam installed: the oil pan, oil filter, timing chain and cover have to be installed, the head gaskets, heads and lifters as well as the push rods, and rocker arms, no assembly is on the bench, the intake and
distributor installed and wiring hooked up, last to be connected will be the positive battery lead and fuel line. The engine has to run continuously for five seconds after starting, it can be restarted as many times as needed. Any broken parts will cost team one minute per part. This year participants are mostly SAIT Automotive Students.
Our company began in 1995 as a Sole Proprietorship. Our main focus was then and still is doing the body and paint work on vehicles that people are having restored. We do everything from a minor rust repair to a complete frame-off show car restoration. Being able to concentrate on just the body and paint aspects of the restorations have allowed us to achieve a level of quality that nets their owners best paint awards at Alberta’s major indoor shows every spring. We have access to a complete line of structural and cosmetic sheet metal “new and used, as well as electrical, mechanical, and trim pieces required to complete your project.” We specialize in complete frame-off and rotisserie restoration on all makes and models of vehicles. From the smallest dent on a daily driver to coordinating a full show car restoration – no job is too big or too small.
