A short video of a normal weekend with the Mayday Garage boys…

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…
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.
MaydayGarage has teamed up with our good friends at SpeedHunters to bring you the MaydayGarage/SpeedHunters All Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet this Friday, April 1st!
Located in the heart of Downtown Houston, this meet will take place at MoonTower Inn, Houston’s BEST hotdog stand serving exotic meats such as duck, wild boar, pheasant, lamb, venison, and rabbit all served on a warm pretzel bun. MoonTower Inn is also known for their excellent draft beer and huge outdoor venue. A popular spot for cyclists and foodies, MoonTower Inn is also hugely popular with the best chefs in Houston.
Moon Tower Inn
Houston, TX 77003
This meet will be held on the streets (very wide) surrounding MoonTower Inn and will start at 5pm sharp. If you want to get your classic JDM ride some serious exposure on MaydayGarage and SpeedHunters‘ blogs, be sure to be there before 7pm where the sunlight is at it’s optimum.
This All Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet is geared towards all Japanese makes pre-1990. Whether they are Datsun 510′s, 240Z’s, Toyota Coronas, Celicas, AE86′s, Mazda RX3′s, RX-7′s or Honda Civic EF’s, everyone is welcomed to attend and both MaydayGarage and SpeedHunters will be looking for unique rides to feature.
So come out and have some great beer and an exotic hotdog and meet your fellow JDM Classic brethren!

Like classy cars? Greg Strube’s immaculately clean E30 is a great example of that, and his car can now be your wallpaper in a super sick 5198 x 3549 resolution! Geezuz!

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a car, hasn’t it? Me and JohnP have been wanting to feature a few cars lately, but we both vowed to wait for a car that would be out-of-this-world. I believe this Ferrari fit the bill.
Worried about scraping up dead carcasses on the Mayday Capital Run in your Helladumped ride? Fear not, for our very own JohnP has taken time to test out the conditions for the Houston Leg to make sure that you don’t mess up your ride! Now that’s dedication!
You know this is gonna be good!
Mondays. Oh how I despise mondays. Mondays to me mean two things: 1. it’s gonna be another 5 days before the weekend, and 2. it’s time to put on my game face for work and get down to business. For others, mondays may mean something else, and I’m not sure what mondays mean for Jonas, the owner of this particular AE86, but I’ll tell you one thing, he knows what business is, and this corolla is screaming it.
It’s not easy building a car that not only turns heads, but also can take a beating at the local drift events. It’s not easy building a drift car that not only has matching body panels, but can also get you around town without waking up the neighborhood with a super loud exhaust. And it definitely is not easy building a car that can stand out in a city that’s 5.7 million people deep.
If you’ve been to any recent drift event here in Houston, TX, you’d be hard pressed to not notice Justin Rogers’ vibrant red 1997 240sx sliding through the cones.
You may remember this clean car from our past coverage of the September 13th drift event. After the tire smoke subsided, and the dust settled, we asked Justin if we could shoot his car for the Mayday blog.
At a recent car show I attended, I spotted this G35 that I had to take pictures of. TunerlifestyleTV hosted this show and of all the cars at the show, there was one team that stood out from the rest, Refined Elegance. For those of you outside of Houston, Refined Elegance is a local group of luxury-minded enthusiasts who show hard with their VIP-inspired rides.
Funny how many people from different states think that only Cali knows how to build VIP styled cars. Not true. A perfect example is Zeem’s (aka KalvinMaui) 2007 Infiniti G35 sedan. The car was originally black, but an intricate color change to a very cool Lexus IS350 Glacier Frost Mica brings out all of the smooth flowing lines of the G35. The car is slammed thanks to the air ride and compliments the Leon Hardiritts perfectly. The rear fenders were subtly widened to accommodate the larger wheels without any issues.
This car is an awesome of example of planning and execution done right.
