Warehouse Visit Houston and Project Beams ITB Swapped AE86

Stopped by one of @andysoun's clients' warehouse in Houston to drop off some AE86 parts and checked out the Nostalgic/Classic cars collection. Sorry for the shaky handheld potato footage.... I'm totally not a professional Youtube-er. The infamous @tomsiik also stopped by to check out the warehouse. Think you could identify all the cars in the video?     [...]

The Ricer Series - Danny's Honda K-Swapped EK Honda Civic

  Is it possible to over build or engineer a Honda to a point where it's almost perfect?  Ok, I wouldn't say "perfect" but it's engineered to function, for sure.  If you asked Lance what he thought of Danny's Honda K-Swapped EK Honda Civic, he'd probably say, "It's an amazing machine..." And... I would have to agree.  You'll see why as you scroll down the post..[...]

The Ricer Series - KoukiKev's Nissan 240SX SE Fastback

  "I'm just going to keep it simple, clean, and reliable...." is what we all say when starting out with our car builds. 5 years later and it snowballs into one of the iconic looks that you'd only see from D1 videos from the late 90s... this is Kevin's Nissan 240SX SE Fastback.  Check out the photos below and you can judge for yourself if this fits the categori[...]

2020 Final Bout Special Stage South (SSS)

  Hey, how's everyone doing with this Coronavirus fiasco?  Hope everyone is safe and staying isolated for the time being... unlike me who flew to LAX for Final Bout SS West... haha.  Probably gonna have to quarantine myself for a week or two when I get back. While at Final Bout SS West, everyone keeps asking me what I thought of Final Bout Special Stage South (S[...]

Final Bout Pre Meet hosted by Mayday Garage - Houston, TX

As I'm typing this, the world is on a Coronavirus pandemic with people canceling events left and right, stocking up on toilet paper for some reason, and just mass hysteria... I get it, it's a crazy big deal and we should all be cautious, but the widespread panic is a bit much tbh.  All types of small businesses and contracts are being slowed down... the economy is jus[...]

The Ricer Series - Joseph's NA1 Acura NSX

Team 5Star Meet 2019 - Houston, TX

  Damn, it's been a minute since I've posted something on the blog.  Kinda sad because it's not cheap to maintain it so I should really put it to good use...  Maybe I should start selling stickers or something to help offset the maintenance of this site... Anyways, enjoy the very few photos I have from the Team 5star Meet 2019 - Houston, TX. I arrived aroun[...]

2018 Wekfest Texas - Houston, TX

Almost forgot I had these set of photos from the 2018 Wekfest Texas - Houston, TX show.  The guys over at the Wekfest show gave Mayday Garage a few spots so I had to help out by choosing a few cars to represent MG.... I didn't get the chance to stay too long but MG chose Jimmy's R32, Pec's AE86, and Nate's Blackbird to represent.  Thanks so much for waking up ear[...]

We Got Shut Down! - Mayday Garage's 2018 Wekfest Pre-Meet

Mayday Garage's 2018 Wekfest Pre-Meet - Yep, I'm just now posting about it because I have some downtime... As usual, Johnp and I scrambled last minute for a location since Moontower Inn was undergoing some construction... so Fabio (OG MG member) mentioned 'The New Potato'.  Located on the East End of Downtown Houston and 2 streets down from Moontower Inn, this was a g[...]
