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...

March Madness 2013

March 20, 2013

Photos by “Big Rick” Treviño 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, flakes, pearls, and pinstripes painted the canvas on this day. The beautiful ladies of H-Town Bail Bonds were taking photos with participants throughout the day and Car Show Hottie Nikki Marie was making heads turn Read More...

Old School – 1967 Chevy Nova SS

July 1, 2012

Story by Jeff Ermann • Jeff@shellmag.com Mario Garza’s ’67 Chevy Nova Super Sport wasn’t always an award-winning show ride. But it has been competing for decades. “I used to race it all the time on the street, and sometimes at Alamo Dragway,” said Garza, 57, of San Antonio. Garza began customizing the car in 2003 and didn’t stop until 2007. First, he mini-tubbed it to make room for bigger tires and had Ignacio Aragon of Ike’s Garage add front and rear disc brakes, along with help from Frank Felan. All of the body work on the car’s been done by Joseph Aragon, while most of the paint and frame work is credited to Robert Escobedo, who added the murals in 2010. “We were gonna set it up as something simple for a show. But you know how it goes – one thing leads to another,” said Randy Garza, Mario’s son and partner on the car. “Little by little, we kept doing stuff to it.” What they’re doing Read More...

LB1 – 1976 Chevy Caprice Classic

May 1, 2012

Story by Jeff Ermann • Jeff@shellmag.com A lot of guys say they’ve been building lowriders for years. But for Freddy Leal, it’s been a way of life for nearly as long as he can recall. Leal’s worked for decades at the family business, at first under his father, and then taking the reins at Leal Bros Custom Painting in Corpus Christi, Tex., back in ’92. So it was no surprise that Leal breezed past the competition in the recent “From Stock to Stun” contest, transforming an untouched ’76 Caprice Classic into a primo show ride, one that’s the first ever lowrider to make the cover of Street Seen. “We had to do everything from start to finish. It was just a plain Caprice Classic,” Leal said. “We’ve been doing car shows for years, so when they asked if I was interested, I said yeah, sure. It was kind of challenging because we also had to do our business and squeeze this in during other hours. A lot of times I Read More...
