Up next in the Archives of Chris Reno is a car that belongs to a long time Houston tuner, and huge supporter of what we would call the local tuner “scene”, Greg Lilly. Greg, like many of us just cant seem to shake the tuner habit, and has devoted his life to ricerhood. Now, a father of two he has to juggle his business (Underground Graphics), children (he has 2), and a marriage ( to a very patient wife ). With all of this juggling around Greg still manages to pull off some petty sick builds. Note I said builds, with an “s” because this is the first of two cars that we will be putting up on Mayday Garage from Greg. Although this car has been out of Greg’s possession for a long time and no longer exists in this form it is still a rad ride. Note: The car was shot 2 years ago, for your viewing pleasure.
A couple of months ago a good friend of mine, and local Houston photographer Chris Reno approached me about a couple of cars he had shot over the past year. Chris (Chreeno) is a local ricer as well and has some great taste in cars, so when we talked about a bit of collaboration I got pretty excited. One of the cars in discussion was Tyler Calhoun’s WRX, an ultra clean, tastefully modded street style beast that, when seen in person makes you break your neck. We like cars like this. Though we at Mayday Garage enjoy “over the top” barely street legal, ricer engaged wild builds, we know a clean car when we see one and Tyler’s Subie fits the bill.
