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

July 2, 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...

El Poderoso

June 6, 2015

Story by Jeff Ermann / Jeff@Shellmag.com Michael Sifuentes’ ’94 Cadillac Fleetwood got plenty of positive feedback in its previous incarnation as a clown and prison gang-themed ride, but he couldn’t help but rethink the car’s theme when people at shows continued to ask him the same question. “People were always asking me, ‘Were you locked up, man?’ I was never locked up, it was just the look of the car,” he says. A year ago, Sifuentes had Fabian of Kandy Kustomz change the color theme to a softer Oriental blue with old-school rainbow flakes. Gone are the aforementioned images, which have been replaced by murals of Jesus. “I’m a Christian.” “We’re a religious family,” said Sifuentes, part of the family-run Sifuentes Body Shop in Eagle Pass, Tex. “So I totally changed it to a different subject.” Sifuentes’ father, four brothers and sister have always been into cars, and he’d Read More...
