With things getting back to some normalcy here, Houston Coffee & Cars hosted by Scuderia returned to it's usual first Saturday of the month schedule at Memorial City Mall. There was a chance of rain of happening but it was scheduled to hit after the meet was over. In any case, that
Houston has been going through a lot lately with hurricane Harvey leaving quite a bit of mess behind. Originally the meet was set for the Saturday, August 25 which we ended up rescheduling the meet with Harvey being in town that weekend, and it’s a good thing we did.
With all the destruction that Hurricane Harvey and the resulting flooding brought to Houston, the monthly Houston Coffee & Cars was delayed a week from their usual first Saturday of the month schedule. Along with the re-schedule, the staff also turned the event into a Harvey relief drive to help

Saturday morning of August 19, 2017, I had a bumpy start for my departure to Dallas. I was initially planning to leave the day before to join the activities Friday night but I had to finish some work before heading out. After wrapping up my work, I crashed for the night and planned
August 13 marked the date for Slammedenuff to return to Texas to host their car show. This year, the show came down to Austin instead of returning to Dallas. As the event date approached, I was still contemplating whether or not I should attend the event. I finally decided on
With summer coming to an end, or perhaps with the school starting at the end of the month, this month’s turnout for Houston’s Coffee and Cars was the biggest one yet. Initially, I was a bit worried about the attendance as rain was in the forecast, but fortunately, that rain didn't
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
In my never-ending quest for more conventions to attend this year, I discovered Anime Austin. This was the first time I had heard of this convention, which is focused on anime and Japanese pop culture. After coming across this exciting discovery, I hit up their website to find more info
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.
Originally, I had planned to bring my Hyundai Veloster out to the monthly Houston Coffee and Cars gathering at Memorial City Mall. Well, plans quickly changed a few days before and I wasn’t sure if I would be able to make it at all. Morning of the event, I was in fact

I was still feeling energized from my last Anime convention, and I was looking forward to my next con. Fortunately for me, my entire family enjoys going to comic conventions too, even though it’s been awhile since we have all been able to go at once. Since they all missed out
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
Import Face-off is a hybrid car show and race event that travels the United States to various cities. Twice a year, IFO makes a stop at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown just outside Houston, which usually takes place in February and September. This past Sunday marked the date for the

During my travels to other cities, there's one thing I like to do if I have the time, and that is to check out the local car scene. This past weekend, a few friends and I made the journey up north to Albuquerque, New Mexico for the weekend. Before arriving,

What is Stancewars? Before the car show, I honestly didn’t know who they were. It all started in Seattle, Stancewars is a growing fitment based event which you could gathering from the name. With success in Seattle and Vegas, the next stop was Houston.

Over the weekend, I found myself along with a fellow photographer venturing up north to Oklahoma City for a photographer event. As usual, I had to find out what car events were taking place while I was in town. I was in luck, it so happens there was one of
