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 Delcos sitting in the trunk. “The car will bounce 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...

50 Shades

May 28, 2015

Story by Jeff Ermann / Jeff@ShellMag.com Model Mary Jane Ventura When Nick Flores says his ’63 Impala is the best of all the Impalas he’s owned, that’s a mouthful. Why? He’s had 50 of them. No, that’s not a typo. Flores has owned FIFTY Chevy Impalas, beginning at an early age. “When I was around 14, my dad, he moved from California in the late 70s and he brought the lowrider lifestyle with him. I just picked it up,” Flores says. “That’s what my dad had when I was little and that’s where my heart is at. Impalas. It’s in the blood.” Flores bought the car in 2012 in original condition, painted black, and he planned to leave it that way but figured he’d add some wheels. So we went out and picked up some 13-inch black spoke, cross-laced OG Wire Wheels. That was supposed to be the end of any customization. If he’d stuck to that plan, of course, you wouldn’t be reading about him in these pages right Read More...
