While going back and looking through photos from Import Reactor 2010-2012, what was once the biggest hard parker parking garage show has now turned into the smallest parking lot(s) show. Import Reactor last year was at the Woodlands and I’m not gonna lie, was a whole lot better than this year. The concentration of the AM/IR staff was mainly at Anime Matsuri since they were at a new location in downtown Houston, The Hyatt hotel. With the right marketing staff, I could see potential in this parking lot location for the hard parkers, show car queens, and badass cars in the Houston community. If something doesn’t happen, it could be one of those, ‘remember that badass Houston show we had’…
It’s Midnite and I have to be at work early tomorrow to finish leftover work from yesterday, but I’m still here at a local teahouse writing up this post. I’m surrounded by a couple to my right learning general chemistry, two hot Asian-russian girls behind me playing on their laptops, and to my left is a guy working on some sort of badass graphic design in photoshop. I should probably pack up and head home to sleep, but before I do that, I’m going to post a bunch of random photos from Round 1 of the Lone Star Drift Series held almost 2 weeks ago.
I’m going to do what we’ve failed to do in awhile… and that is posting coverage within a week of the event. Hah. I’m only doing this because I took some time off from work to get my wisdom tooth removed. I’m writing this while in pain. Thank god it wasn’t too tough making this post since we only had a handful of ok photos… you’ll see why…
Our fearless leader, JohnP, has been up to his balls in food truck business, which has been a success to say the least. Here are his golden balls. He’s lost a little weight.

Back in September, I had the pleasure of meeting up Tyler Horne, a local car guy in Houston that’s hellbent on spreading the good word on healthy eating by running multiple farmer’s markets all around the city. Although Urban Harvest is his baby, his passion is cars and bikes just like the rest of us gearheads. I’ve known Tyler for a little while now, so when he asked if he could have some photos taken of his newest obsession, I told him he should have one of the other Mayday guys take the photos because I really don’t consider myself capable of taking outstanding photos, but more importantly, I wanted the photos to do the bike and owner justice.
Secrets don’t make friends.
The Lonestar Run. Houston’s official roll out to Ft. Worth for WekFest.
The Lonestar Run is strictly for entertainment purposes only. It is not a race, therefore Mayday Garage is not responsible for any tickets, deaths, explosions or offensive material such as mooning that happen this run.
Now that being said, Meet-Up time is 9:00am at Greenspoint Mall in the main parking lot and roll-out will be 10:00 SHARP on Friday October 14th.
Some people are going to ask why we are leaving at 10AM on Friday and not 5-6pm and the answer is real simple, traffic. Having multiple cars in a “caravan” during rush hour sucks for everyone, therefore 10AM it is so we avoid the morning rush hour and afternoon rush hour traffic.
Secondly, some people will ask why we are leaving on Friday and not super hella early on Saturday morning. The answer is that we all love to party our asses off on Friday before the show, so, if you want to party with us, then roll out on Friday!
Now, on to the details.
