Mayday Garage X The Chronicles WekFest TX Official PreMeet 12.14.13.

It’s official!

Everyone knows we throw some pretty cool meets. We don’t do them too often because if they’re not cool, we won’t do them at all.

Weksos Industries asked us some time ago to host the WekFest TX official Pre Meet and it is our pleasure to present to you what we’ve been working on for quite some time.

On December 14th, 2013, the night before the WekFest TX car show, we will be hosting Houston’s largest Street Style meet we’ve ever attempted at the 8th Wonder Brewery located on 2202 Dallas St, Houston, TX 77003.

Mayday Garage has rented out the brewery for the entire night, and 8th Wonder Brewery will be giving out free beer tours, as well as pouring $3 pints all night long (CASH ONLY!). If you haven’t heard of this brewery, it was started by the same guys that own and operate The Eatsie Boys food truck, which will also be in attendance. Speaking of food trucks, no ricer meet would be complete without bringing out our very own food truck, The Rice Box.

We have also collaborated with our long time friend, Joey Lee, aka, Stickydiljoe, aka The Chronicles to help us throw this awesome event. With his help, we will be pulling cars from all around the TX and third coast states.

With everyone coming in from different cities and states for the greatest car show in Houston, it’s time to show the rest of the world how Houston gets down. We’ve all built our cars to drive, park or track it to our tastes, and it’s time to show where our Street culture lives- on the street.

We have driven up and down the surrounding streets where the Brewery is located and although there are a few dips and bumps around, every car can make it through, IF you use common sense. We will post a “Dumped Friendly” route soon as we get closer to the date.

More details to come.

Prepare thy anuses.

Nostalgic Wednesday: Autozam AZ-1

With the prices of gas fluctuating, the trend has pushed automakers to produce cars and trucks that can squeeze the best gas mileage. Options such as Hybrid, bio-diesel, EVs, and natural gas are becoming more  prevalent. Other than “green” tech rolling out the production line, we notice more smaller cars on the streets; Scion iQ, Nissan cube, Smart fourtwo, Fiat 500, and just the other day, I saw a Mitsubishi “i”. Are Kei-cars invading the US market? Honestly, these small economical “green” cars may be cheap, reliable and can be a mileage-meister, but they sure are ghastly.

One thing I admire about the Japanese car culture is they work with what they have. No matter what car they drove, they made/mod it their own; without an exception of the Kei-car culture. From VIPstyle, deko, Boso and race inspired, kei-cars were modified to fit one’s taste.

Event Coverage: The Lonestar Run by MaydayGarage.

If you’ve been following MaydayGarage for a few years, then you know Mayday’s earliest beginnings started off as a caravan to Austin dubbed The Mayday Capital Run. It was originally conceived and planned by our very own JohnP as a way to build a small knit group of people that just want to cruise as a pack. The first few were so successful, we now have a following that travel with us every time we have one of these runs.
