Growing up around American Muscle cars as a kid, I have always had a soft spot for older muscle cars, especially the late 60s and early 70s models. I just love that era and the body styles that came out during that time; they are just so beautiful to me.
Models come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. This is definitely true with quirky and energetic southern belle Heidi Jo. Growing up participating in various pageants since the age of 3, she's no stranger to the stage and modeling has been a big part of her life.
August 20, 2016, My family and I found ourselves out and about Houston when we made a stop at a ramen shop for dinner. While eating, I noticed a small group of people enjoying their ramen in cosplay. I love cosplay, so being curious I made my way over and

Over the holiday weekend, Houston Coffee & Cars returned to Memorial City Mall parking lot for this month’s gathering. With holidays, you never know how that could change the size as some people travel. I wasn’t sure if it would be bigger or smaller, or maybe no change at all.

While traveling, I like to scout different rides in the area. Before heading up to Wichita, I began my search for modified rides in the area to shoot. One of the rides stood out right away with the shiny reflective wrap on a Nissan 240SX. Instantly, I set up a

Anime Matsuri XI has come and gone. Now, for many of us, it’s time to start counting down 'til next year’s convention. Not sure what Anime Matsuri is?

Hopefully this trends continues through summer with cooler days for one of Houston's largest
For many of us, ‘The Fast and the Furious’ franchise changed our lives and recruited some to join the automotive lifestyle. When we first asked David Oden why he ended up choosing an R33, it was more or less about the Fast & Furious fanboy angle and a much longer Motorex story in

Recently, I decided to go on a little health kick and get into better shape. Growing up, I was always into sports, playing all of them through high school. After that I didn’t really do much. I was never a chunky kid, but never ripped either. Fast forward to adulthood: I wasn’t very active and I love
For our first international model, we couldn't just pick any model; we decided on South African born, fire breathing dragon model who also happens to be a pilot and an actress. Meet Roshie, who is also not a one trick pony (dragon?) when it comes to modeling. As you may have guessed,
