Another Night, Another Box of Rice.

Continuing our tradition every Wednesday, here are some cool cars that showed up last week for Ricer Wednesday. See you guys out there!

Super duper low S2K on CCW's sitting pretty

Japanese, German, Track, Street, VIP, drift, we have all styles represented at Ricer Wednesdays

Grant's absolutely bonkers Pontiac G8/commodore on VS-KF's always has people guessing if it's static or bagged. (it's static)

The American-Chinese food at Rice Box is damn good. Google it, then come out.

Not only does JohnP run the Rice Box Truck, he'll also push your low ass out of the lot.

The Ultimate.

New cars are weird to us. On one hand, we love the design of new cars such as the BRZ, Camaro Z28, and Porsche Turbo S, and on the other, we HATE the size of the new BRZ, Camaro Z28 and Porsche Turbo S. It’s all personal tastes though. They just don’t make badass cars like the Ferrari F40 anymore. Or do they? There hasn’t been another Ferrari that’s touched us like the 458 Italia has. It’s organic, flowing body lines combined with the low and wide stance and proper Ferrari grunt has made us fall in love with the car. Oh, and it drives like a bat out of hell too.

This car is LOW

Last week we got a chance to check out a special 458 Challenge car brought to us by Ferrari of Houston and we were immediately drawn to it. It arrived on a flatbed (racecar) without any type of livery or decals, so to some, it looked like a bonafide street car. A street car with a giant adjustable wing, front dry carbon splitter, center locking race weels, all carbon interior and one loud ass motor. So maybe not so street car-ish, but still cool to see this race edition 458 without any kind of badging.

That Ferrari Lexan window makes our shots trippy

Oh lawd.

Almost better than yoga pants

No, that's not NOS

Street Sweepin’.

You guys have seen us advertise our weekly Sunday Coffee and Rice meet ups lately, but we never forget our other regular weekly meet, Ricer Wednesdays at our food truck, Ricebox. Last night was no different than our usual gatherings, but we always know there’ll be a large turnout when the Houston weather plays nicely all day, and last night’s weather was perfect.

We decided to finally park on the streets of Westheimer (legally), and good thing we did, as there was no parking for a little while because the meet got super packed! Here’s a few shots.

Where the streets have a name. Westheimer.

More Photoshoots and Ricebox.

More photo dumping of Behind-The-Scenes with John Zhang and Patrick Lauder as seen through the eyes of Mayday Garage!

JZ, Danh, Christine and overly dressed Dennis check out the Turbo RX-8

Dennis tries to give Pat a wet willy

John does not look like this because it's early in the morning. Because Asian.

Patrick takes a nap in between shots.

Before shooting this Tesla Model S, we wanted to check out our posts (or porn).

There is entirely too much rice for one picture here.

More to come.

Simplicity is Key.

You would think that the guys at Mayday Garage are all about wild shit on cars based on how some of us modify our cars, but you’d be wrong if you thought that’s all we enjoy. Although “Wheels and a drop” is a common phrase you’ll see on many car forums, sometimes, just sometimes, it has some truth behind it. Take these two examples below: One is a four door 3-series BMW and the other is a Toyota MR2 Turbo. At first glance, they may both seem like stockish cars, but there’s something to be said about certain cars that don’t necessarily “need” aero enhancements. The gunmetal centers on this black BMW accent the dark, sinister look of the Bimmer, and the bright gold centers on the BBS LM’s pop so much against the green SW20 MR2. While the US definitely went through a clean OEM +1 look for years, we feel that today’s trends are leading to more radical looks as seen on the latest Rocket Bunny/Liberty Walk/RWB creations, but there’ll always be a place for fine machines that won’t lose their appeal over time with a great set of wheels, clean paint, and a good lowered stance.
