Success! WFTX Weekend.

As we catch up on some much deserved sleep from the past weekend, we wanted to stop and say thank you to all of those involved to make WekFest TX weekend a runaway success…
We would like to take this time to recognize all the people that helped us get through WekFest TX weekend. Big thanks to all that came to the PreMeet early to help us fill in the spots before things got absolutely batshit crazy with the thousand plus cars that eventually filled the streets in the most epic meet Houston has ever seen.

Special thanks goes out to Rami and all of his Low-Weezy-Ana people including Brian, Wesley, Jonathan, Mikey and Jimmy for bringing out their show winning rides. Thanks to Jay and RC for bringing what would be the WekFest TX Best of Show Integra all the way in from Arizona. That Integra was hands down the nicest build we’ve laid eyes on, holy hell, well deserved! Thanks to Bradley Lafayette and his girlfriend Leisha for driving in the RHD all carbon J’s Racing Honda S2000, our boy Danny wishes he could have been there with you this year! Thanks to all of our special guests, Roy Moncada, Thomas Pinai, Matt Hans, Fredy Gomez, Peck, Tom Syhachack, Tito, Cody Crochett, Kevin Guevara and his team of S2000’s on CCW’s, Kevin Tran, Chan Le, Michael Austin Heath, Henry Do, Jorge and Tony from Potresse, Hajime Maki and Tiny.

Thanks to all the volunteers that did so much work at the actual meet including Kishan Panchal and his friends, Craig Kelly, Brandon Primes, Alejandro Velasquez and everyone else we forgot. That was a HUGE load off of our shoulders and we cannot thank you guys enough. Also thanks to the girls that helped work the merchandise this past weekend including Jessyca Blood, Jessica McCaffrey, Liz Reinhard and Jenny Vo. You gals are great at selling and keeping things organized behind the scenes. Thanks goes out to the guys at Moon Tower-Inn Houston for allowing such a gigantic meet to happen on the streets of Houston and for allowing us to take over the entire venue. Of course none of this is possible without the collaboration of the entire staff at Wekfest USA including Kenneth Li, Ernesto Jr Sarmiento, Geoffrey Nguyen, Wesley Katayama and the rest. You guys have made WFTX weekend a weekend for everyone in Texas and the surrounding areas to look forward to and to force people to step their game up, you have done so much for the car scene, and mad respect for you guys to come out every year. Thank you Steve Lim from Mackin Industries and Hun at ASAA racing for allowing us to share your booth space with us. We are honored that you let us join forces to showcase some of your wheels and brake products, we will HAVE to collaborate again in the future as we use only RAYS/ADVAN/Project Mu products on our own cars. And of course, thanks goes out to the team at Mayday Garage which consists of John Peterson, David Do, Danh Phan, Andrew Machac, Mikey Nguyen, Khiem Pham, John Markadakis, Fabio Pontes and Princeton Wong. Special thanks to Princeton for getting the Hakosuka out on the streets LEGALLY and for stopping everyone dead in their tracks at WekFest.

We strive to keep the Houston car scene alive and we will continue to bring the best of the best out at our shindigs. There is so much more to look forward to, and we won’t stop. Next Stop: Tokyo, Japan.

Low Friendly Maps for the PreMeet!

Because many of you have asked, we took the time to make these maps to the event! We call them the dump maps, aka, for dumped cars. These are the three different scenarios/routes that you would possibly take if you’re coming in from any direction.
**Disclaimer** Although we try our best to route the best way to get there, there are still bumps in the roads. You MUST use common sense and drive slowly through just like you would on any road you’ve never been on with your slammed car!

From I-10 West or I-45 North:

Dump Map I10W

From I-10 East:
This map is for anyone coming in from the East side, aka I-10 East. Take special precaution of the road RIGHT after the railroad tracks near Clinton street. Also- STAY ON THE RIGHT LANE when you take the bridge over the water on Lockwood Drive.

Dump Map I10E

From US 59 South or I-45 South:
This is a map for anyone coming in from the south side, aka, US 59 South, I-45 South. You’ll basically loop around downtown.
If you drive a normal car, ignore this map and just take 59 North and exit Polk St.

Dump Map 45S 59S

We’ll see you guys at 6pm today!

The WekFest USA Official WekFest PreMeet Hosted by Mayday Garage

Last year we hosted WekFest USA’s official pre meet, and it was the largest we had ever managed. Over 1000 cars jam packed in downtown Houston and it was glorious. Dubbed “the best meet I’ve ever been to” by staff at WekFest, we expect this year to be bigger and even better! Join us the night before WFTX on Saturday, 10/18/14 at 6pm at Moon Tower Inn located on 3004 Canal St right outside of Downtown! We will have MANY cars out for this one including a ton of out of state guests. We will have our very own Ricebox food truck there serving the best damn Chinese food in Houston in addition to having Moon Tower’s famous hot dogs and local Texas craft beers! If you missed last years meet, you have a chance to redeem yourself this year and celebrate the WekFest TX weekend with us!! See you there! Spread and share!!

Texas Cars UNITE!!!

For the longest time, we’ve always wanted a reason to bring multiple cities in Texas together for one event. WekFest USA will be having their show for the first time in Houston, our hometown, next month on Sunday, December 15th at the George R. Brown Convention center. As you know, they’ve asked us to host a Pre Meet in Houston, the night before, and we enthusiastically obliged by teaming up with Stickydiljoe to have our premeet at the 8th Wonder Brewery just a couple of blocks away. We know there’ll be a lot of you guys coming to both events, and we’ve teamed up with some local leaders in the Austin and Dallas areas to have a mass caravan from each respective city to leave that Saturday morning and have them all come together for lunch at The Moon Tower Inn, a badass food spot that specializes in wild game hot dogs and Texas brewed craft beers.

The idea is to have everyone come to this spot to not only eat and drink, but also to give people that don’t know anyone in Houston a place to socialize and kill some time before heading just a mile or two down the road to our meet at 8th Wonder. We will be there at all three venues, so please prepare your livers, it will be one of the best car weekends of your life.

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.
