LMP Car Show 2019

November 12, 2019

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 friends we haven’t seen in Read More...

Boulevard Boss

June 9, 2015

Story by Jeff Ermann / Jeff@ShellMag.com Model: Miss Misty Marie [Editor’s note: This article was originally published in our Volume 29 Magazine in November 2012] Before the hundreds of hours of work, all the small details and major overhauls and all of the money spent – roughly $50,000, he estimates —  Robert Ramos’ Impala was just a car he’d picked up on a whim. “I bought it in June 2011. One of my car club members had it. It was painted, but the engine needed work and the interior needed to be redone. I wanted to just clean up the engine, but next thing you know, we were going all-out,” Ramos said. “I love the car, period. I love everything about it. ”But there are a couple of things that seem to stand about the Impala, named “Blvd Boss.” The paint job with intricate patterning, and the bounce. Boss’ three-pump, one-port piston set-up, has some serious juice behind it, as it’s powered by 10 AC Read More...

March Madness

June 7, 2015

Photos by “Big Rick” Treviño As we’ve mentioned in earlier articles, we’re reaching back through our archives and digging up coverage that was never published in the pages of StreetSeen Magazine. We came across this gem in the bunch. The March Madness show was the kickoff show for the 2013 WEGO Tour in partnership with the Houston Region Tour. It took place at the Armadillo Flea Market in Houston, a popular venue for many car clubs hosting their own car shows. Being the very first show on the tour for the season, the turnout was phenomenal. Many car clubs and participants getting cabin fever over the long winter season were aching to get their rides out of the garage to get them show ready. Like at any WEGO Event, the top clubs were in attendance to get the jump on the Tour’s Club Champion title at the end of the season. Low lows, classics, trucks, bikes, and luxurys filled the parking lot outside and the convention area indoors. Kandies, chrome, Read More...
