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...

Oklahoma Summer Bash 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...

Tombstone – 1985 Chevy C10

June 2, 2015

Story by Jeff Ermann / Jeff@shellmag.com It’s not often a show truck is named after a Kurt Russell movie, but then again it’s not often one finds its way into the winner’s circle at shows after spending several years as a work truck, and several more as a street racer. But that’s the story on Leo Garza’s truck, nicknamed “Tombstone” after Garza’s favorite movie, the 1993 outlaw western starring Russell. Garza drove the ’85 Chevy C10 to work for years before deciding to juice it up and race it — until something happened that would result in the truck taking on a third, different form. “I lost control of it and I wrecked it,” Garza says. “I started redoing it again to race it. At that time, I had another show car, an El Camino, and I saw another show truck like it all fixed up.” That’s when, three years ago, he decided to re-frame it and turn it into a show ride. “My son got involved with it Read More...
