The Torres Empire grows larger with every year that passes. Though Dallas has always been THE signature stop for the Empire, it moved into a larger facility closer to the middle of the city for this year’s event. The reason? Nearly 500 show vehicles and 7000 spectators in attendance. Some of the hottest rides in the scene came in from as far away as Los Angeles to show strong in the Lone Star State.

The car hop is always a source of hard hitting action. Many brought out their rides and slammed the back bumper for the top honor of being the best. It made for a wild Sunday afternoon.

Indoors, Rodney O kicked out a few of his old school jams before hip hop Legend Ice Cube took the stage. He had the stage area crowded as he belted out some of his greatest hits. The crowd was wild. They can never get enough of the man.

Being a major stop on the WEGO Tour, the Stock to Stun Competitors had to unveil another piece of their project rides. This time, the builders had to show off their interiors. Though all competitors who showed had stunning work to unveil, the Leal Bros. From Corpus Christi, TX took the top spot again, making them the shop everyone one is aiming to beat if they want to win this competition.

Our thanks go out to Sam Torres, Tim Walls, and the entire Torres Empire staff for having us out again this year…
