Random Snap: Pit Stop.

One of the joys of owning a Pit Bull is that you get to see how happy they are when they’re near people. Takata’s whole butt moves from side to side as she wags her little puppy tail when people approach her ready to pet her soft coat. Likewise, Joy’s red nose Pit Bull, an extra large boy named Turbo, is always happy to meet new people, and especially, kids.

Despite what mainstream media would like to tell you, Pit Bulls are great with kids, and were even used as nannies before they were used as status symbols by not-so-savory types. So while I was relaxing under the IAG tent during this past Sunday’s College Park Tuning Springtime event, I noticed a little girl that was so excited to ask Joy for permission to pet the dog that was three times her size. She gave him some affection, and in typical Pit Bull fashion, Turbo loved every second, wagging his tail and smelling the little girl’s hands. I managed to snap off this pic while holding Takata with my other hand.

Pit Bulls - One of the greatest breeds

Just wanted to share a moment that made me smile.

Announcement: MaydayGarage x Baker Tuning Presents- Wek’Fest Pre Meet 9/17

MaydayGarage and Baker Tuning are proud to present the official Pre-Meet for Wek’Fest this Saturday, the 17th at Baker Nissan!

Baker Nissan was generous enough to allow us to use their enormous facility to host our meet there. You’ll get a chance to check out some of the Baker Tuning cars as well as check out their huge shop. Food, music and free WekSos swag, and a chance to meet up with your fellow showgoers. Chicago had the same thing with Canibeat and Fizz Autosports for their Pre Meet, and now it’s our turn to show them how it’s done. If you can’t make the actual Wek’Fest Show in Ft. Worth on 10/15, you can at least attend this free meet right here in Houston.

Wash up those rides because you know we are going to take a butt ton of photos while we’re out there, and you know it’s going to be posted all over the interwebz.

For those of you who couldn’t come to our private meet, here’s your chance to strut your stuff, so bring that shit.

An Opulence of Style: Dennis To’s Silky Smooth Mazda RX-8.

If I was given a dollar for every car that has been thrown at me to consider featuring on MaydayGarage, I’d have enough money to buy myself a set of decent wheels for the daily. When I get the opportunity to check out local meets, i’m always in scouting mode, scanning the endless sea of imports to find “that” car. Sometimes I’ll strike out, but then sometimes I’ll come across a car that will instantly catch my eye.






JTran Studios Summer Meet ver. 2011.

JTran Studios, named aptly after it’s owner, Johnny Tran (not the guy who got narc’d out), has been a positive driving force in Houston’s Tuner scene since owning Wings West Touring wings were cool. As such, this local North Houston shop which houses an AWD Mustang Dyno and work-bays-a-plenty, has seen it’s fair share of different types of trends fall and rise. Something I absolutely admire about JTran studios is it’s “Total Tuning” mindset which is very common to see in tuner shops in Japan. What is “Total Tuning”? In a word, everything. Suspension work, big brake conversions, interiors, sound systems, aero work, and of course engine modifications that are include, but not limited to; forced induction, dyno tuning, fabrication and serious engine builds. Some shops concentrate on only one or two areas, but the folks at JTran Studios “get it”, and the cars that come from this respective shop are typically cars that we see setting the bar at meets and shows here locally.

Event Coverage: The 4th Annual All Team Bash

Four years ago one man had an idea. An idea that translated into the single largest car meet that Houston now sees on a yearly basis.
Kimo, head honcho for SunWorks, a local Houston area car club that now has spanned over the nation through different chapters, brainstormed an idea that would unite Houston area car clubs for one event. Instead of competing with each other to see who had the best rides, he envisioned that clubs would get together and get to know one another, and instead compete for who had the best barbecue. The meet was christened, “All Team Bash”.

Holy Jeebus

G's up, Ho's down

Dem Asses


You KNOW they're hot.




Event Coverage: MaydayGarage x SpeedHunters All Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet.

What started as silly banter on our Facebook page between me and SpeedHunter, Linhbergh Nguyen, evolved into a proposed meet of Houston’s best old school Japanese classic cars, I excitedly agreed to make it happen. When JohnP eventually found out that I had accepted the proposal from Linhbergh, JohnP had gone into full fledged freak out mode. If you know a little about John’s background, then you know when he throws a meet, you also know he likes to do things big. Enter the MaydayGarage x SpeedHunters All Japanese Nostalgic Car Meet.
