Houston Super Show 2021

October 30, 2021

It has been several years since Houston has had a massive indoor car show. That would have been Los Magnificos Super Show in 2016. It would be five whole years later before rumblings about WEGO returning with an indoor show towards the end of the year began to make their rounds throughout the scene, just as the haze of Covid barely began to lift.

It has been nearly a decade; August 19, 2012 to be exact, since we checked in on Felipe Villarreal and boys of Independent Car Club in Chicago. Back then, their annual car show was still a fledgling event that was making a name for itself. This year, we were fortunate enough to have somebody in Chicago at the perfect time to drop in and check on the fellas and their event. The 11th Annual Independent Car Show was still going strong.

The last time we caught up with Still Rollin' Car Club was in February of 2020, a split second before covid became a a full blown pandemic.

Ritz Car Show 2020

March 21, 2020

In 2018, The Ritz Cabaret in Houston, Texas, hosted a car and truck show after at least 15 years since hosting their first one. The event had some support from local clubs and riders, but the weather forecast proved to be the bad luck that kept it from being a great event. The Ritz crew knew that hosting a successful event would be possible if only the weather cooperated. The decision was made to skip September in 2019 and attempt the show again in the first weekend in March of 2020. The decision to move the date would prove to be a good move. Though somewhat windy, the weather was pretty good for a day full of custom and restored rides decorating the Ritz parking lot. Many local riders and clubs came out to show support. There were a variety of genres of vehicles on display to satisfy any auto enthusiast’s taste. Ritz managers Rick, Rami, and Lynn Even though the Ritz is a business that caters to adults over 21 indoors, outdoors, the event was a family affair with many people Read More...

Lowrider Cruz Night – February 29, 2020

March 7, 2020

The Tejas Lowrider Movement (TLM) has been a name that has come up a lot recently in the Houston custom car scene. What is the TLM? “It’s a lowrider movement to keep things alive for our lowrider culture,” says John Almanza, the organization’s founder. The TLM has been hosting many local custom car events, picnics, and BBQs in the Houston area for the last five years. Every one of them have been absolutely free for the public and participants. With partnerships with some of Houston’s hottest local eateries, the TLM has had many location options across town to host their gatherings. Almanza, a former member of For Life and Expensive Taste car clubs, said, “I wanted to involve everyone from every club; not just our club doing events all the time. It would burn people out.” His solution for burn out was to create an organization that would include all clubs, solo riders, and enthusiasts. We have been to a few TLM events just as spectators.

Still Rollin 2nd Annual Car Show

February 29, 2020

Still Rollin Car Club – The hosts of this event. Still Rollin Car Club was formed in February of 2018. In the two years that Still Rollin has been a club, they have gained a lot of respect among their peers in the custom car scene in both Texas and Colorado. This was evident at their 2nd Annual Still Rollin Car Show in Houston, Texas. On a very overcast Sunday morning at the Zum Barrel Resturant in Late February, 2020, the club set up to receive entries. It wouldn’t be long before the entries started rolling in. Because of the dark skies throughout the day, we weren’t quite sure what to expect in terms of attendance. Turns out that the event had over 100 entries; a very respectable amount of participants supporting the Houston custom car scene. Best of Show winner Joe Valdez’ 1962 ragtop Impala James Hinojosa, President of the club said, “Still Rollin Car Club wanted to create a family oriented, fun, enjoyable event, with prize winning, and lots of Read More...

Oldies Car Club Picnic 2020

February 1, 2020

For the second time in January, we found ourselves at a picnic in Houston. This time, the host was none other than the Houston chapter of Oldies Car Club. We arrived at Mason Park in Houston’s Southeast side nice and early to ensure we found parking. The area at Mason Park where the picnics usually take place is not nearly as large as the area at MacGregor Park. This year marked the 15th Anniversary of Oldies Car Club in Houston and the club went all out for the entire weekend including hosting a dinner and dance on Saturday night with Tejano music legend Ruben Ramos headlining the event. Oldies Car Club – Houston, TX – The hosts of this picnic. As expected, it didn’t take long for the park to overflow with a who’s who in the Houston lowrider scene. The music setting the soundtrack for this event was being mixed by DJ O.G. Volo while BBQ pits were smoking throughout the park. Again, the city was fortunate to get picturesque weather for the day since Read More...
