A New Adventure: The Rice Bowl

Fellow enthusiasts:

Before the blog, before the social media, Mayday Garage’s origins have been that of hosting underground events in the Houston area. For the past 12 years the roots of Mayday have pushed to keep the spirit of the street vibrant, from streets to garages to convention centers, the preservation of tuning culture has always been Mayday’s primary objective. In 2015, we will embark on one of our most exciting and dynamic events to date, The Rice Bowl. Join us as we host a new type of modified vehicle exhibition and partner with Japanese culture convention Anime Matsuri in bringing you a new experience Easter Weekend 2015 at George R. Brown convention center.

As a modified car exhibition that will celebrate Japanese & European street style within Anime Matsuri, The Rice Bowl is not a competition platform. It is an exhibition party with live acts, industry guests and celebration of tuning culture.

Join us April 4 as we make 2015 the year of rice!

Automotive participation details to be unveiled 02/01/15.

It’s a wrap!

The last six days has been the most craziest, insane and fun time I’ve had in a while. Two main photographers from Cali, add in 14 cars, five days, TX2K14, HIN, Anime Matsuri, homosexual tendencies, and a shit ton of coffee and you have one hell of a week.

Here’s a few photos for a preview!

Need more light? No problem. Every photographer has an LED light on their smartphone.

Robert Lopez and John Zhang, aka 1013mm, know their light bitch roles for Paul Morgan's S2k

Linhbergh, JZ, and Mikey sharing dim sum, STD's and laughs.

We don't condone rape. And technically this isn't because he was willing.

MUCH more to come!

Keep Tuning,

Top Secret 370Z’s Update: Brakes, Body Kits and Balls.

The Mayday Garage crew got a chance to check up on the twin white Z’s being built by Planet Zero and Baker-Jackson Nissan. As you recall, these twin Z34’s are being built in preparation for Smoky Nagata’s arrival here in Houston. These 370’s will undergo a very drastic transformation as they will go from showroom stock, to track/show shock. Maydaygarage will be here documenting this event, and this past thursday, I got a chance to see what these cars were going through.
