Megan Kan – Car Show Hotties

January 3, 2020

We often referred to her as our Germanese Hottie. Half German, half Chinese, Megan Kan had the perfect look to model for us. She worked at several car shows over the last few years and has appeared in several volumes of StreetSeen Magazine. This San Antonio hottie appeared on the September 2012 cover of StreetSeen Magazine and had a very steamy layout in Car Show Hotties Volume 3. Though we first met her online a few months before, our first meeting in person would be at the 2011 San Antonio Heatwave. Since then, she quickly became one of our go to girls for many events. She’s intelligent, articulate, and let’s be honest, very easy on the eyes. StreetSeen Magazine definitely pushed her to her limits when it came to comfort. She had never worn a G-string bikini for any public modeling jobs before us, and we’re pretty sure not any after either. Her first show with us would be the Torres Empire Car Show back in 2011. Then, she carried a very nervous smile the entire Read More...

Vanessa Martinez Christmas Toy Drive Car Show 2019

December 21, 2019

Frank Hernandez, Jr. of City Style Car Club in Houston is no newcomer to organizing fundraisers for great causes. Over the last several years, he, along with his former club – The Gulf Coast Chapter of Rollerz Only, hosted their annual “Holiday Angels Toy Drive” with great success. This year, he wanted to make a go at a toy drive with his new club hosting the event in partnership with another local club – Veteranos Tejanos. “I could have asked any car club to help me, but I went with [Veteranos Tejanos] because they seemed to be the most humble car club,” said Hernandez. Frank got with a friend of his, Victor Treviño III, who in turn connected Frank with his mother, Constable Sylvia Treviño of Harris County Precinct 6. She helped Frank get the ball rolling with the event. “She agreed to let me use their parking lot with one condition: that she collaborate with us and become a partner [in the event],” Hernandez said. But Read More...

Plan B – 1962 Chevy SS Impala

December 14, 2019

This Impala is proof that dreams do come true. Christopher Huff of League City, Texas, has always wanted to own an Impala. “I’ve been into lowriders since I was in junior high,” Huff said, “I grew up going to Los Magnificos shows back when they were big.” So when the oil and gas industry machinist finally started making good money, he made his dream a reality. He purchased a 1963 Impala that was pretty much completed. “It went to Shorty’s for a 4 pump, 8 battery set up. That’s all I did,” Huff said. Shortly after purchasing the ‘63, he found this 1962 Impala Super Sport. “I bought the car for $12,000. From there it went to Car Craft in Pasadena, Texas,” said Huff, “Paul Rodriguez has been a family friend and mechanic for my family and company for many years, so I elected to let him wrench on it.” Rodriguez took care of all the paint and body work the ‘62 needed. Luckily, there wasn’t a lot Read More...

Misty Marie Gonzales – Car Show Hotties

December 12, 2019

If there is anyone who embodies the title ‘Car Show Hottie’ in the current era, it’s Misty Marie Gonzales; known to her many fans as Miss Misty the Model. She burst out onto the scene in 2011 at the San Antonio Texas Heatwave and has been a rising star ever since. Not only is this Houston, TX born model one of the most gorgeous ladies in the scene, but also one of the sweetest. Ask any of her fans and they can tell you that she is extremely approachable and never passes on a chance to snap shots with them. On stage, Misty has been a crowd favorite in many of bikini contests she’s competed in, mostly because of her many diehard fans that cheer her on to first place. In our many years covering car shows, we’ve had many opportunities to work with her. She has appeared in several print layouts for us; Her November 2012 feature with Robert Ramos’ Blvd Boss, her almost too hot for print feature in Car Show Hotties Magazine, and her Vol. 34 StreetSeen Read More...

LMP Car Show 2019

November 12, 2019

Story and photos by Jay Villa This weekend we said goodbye to an old friend; Los Magnificos Car Show. For 37 years, Los Magnificos has not only been a staple of the Houston custom car show scene, but of the national car show scene. This LMP Show celebrated the memories of years past. Helen Carmona, the matriarch of Los Magnificos family, decided to retire and retire the show name as well. Truly, it was a great run. Los Magnificos has been the source of many of our best memories over the years. Jon Chuck, WEGO Tour CEO says that even though the name is retiring, Houston will still hold a yearly show on the WEGO Tour as it has for many years, just with a new name. Will The LMP Supershow be the permanent name for the Houston WEGO Finale? Only time will tell. As everyone knows, it’s been a hot minute since we’ve attended any car shows regularly. This year, we’ve only attended 3 so far; Spring Break Jam, Illegal Toys, and this show. Getting back to a show and seeing Read More...

Oklahoma Summer Bash 2019

July 2, 2019

Illegal Toys Car Club shows us how they jump back into the car show game. Photos by Jose Luis Rodriguez, Jr. We had to double and triple check to make sure that the information we had was correct. It has been a solid six years to the date since Illegal Toys Car Club hosted a car show in the City of Oklahoma City! That would have been their 9th Annual Illegal Toys Car Show and Concert at the Oklahoma State Fair Park in 2013. That’s right. 2013! Back then, Lucky Luciano and Trampia were headlining a show with a solidly built reputation that was growing in size each year. Then it abruptly stopped. Quiet as a mouse for quite some time. But why? With a show as wildly popular as the Illegal Toys Car Show and Concert was on the WEGO Tour, why not keep it going forever? “We [Illegal Toys CC] thought we would take a break for a year or two to focus on our rides,” said Caspy Julian of Illegal Toys Car Club, “As you can see it was longer than that.” Jamie and the Read More...

Spring Break Jam 2019

March 6, 2019

30 years and running for this Texas Custom Car Institution. RM Series Cutlass from Good Times Car Club When we have covered a show as many times as we have several of the Heatwave Tour shows, it becomes very difficult to give you a fresh perspective, so we usually let the photos do the talking. This doesn’t mean that we will not take the opportunity to repeat all of the great things we’ve told you several times before about the tour. This year, Spring Break Jam kicked off the 30th anniversary of the Texas Heatwave Show. You could say 30th anniversary of the tour as well, since the Texas Heatwave Show was the seed that grew into the tour. Back in 1989, a 19 years young David MacDonald hosted his very first Texas Heatwave show at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock, TX with a very respectable 207 entries. King of Kings Rat Rod Fast forward to 2019. The Texas Heatwave Show now boasts over a whopping 2000 entries. Easily the single largest custom car and truck show in Texas. And Read More...
