It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged or posted anything on the Mayday Garage site but what better timing than to post about our past event, the 2015 Wekfest Pre-Meet. Every year, the Wekfest show tours around the nation and one of their stops includes Texas. Thankfully, Houston was the city chosen this year to represent Wekfest Texas or #WFTX. When the announcement was made, we were hesitant to throw a pre-meet, but who throws a better meet nowadays than Mayday Garage? We do it for the young kids, enthusiasts, photographers, car spotters, builders who want to show off their #wekfestprep builds the night before, and for the people who can’t make it to the show to come out and support. Our usual venue choices always comes down to either 8th Wonder Brewery or Moon Tower Inn. We went with the latter because Canal St. is much wider and parking logistics is a lot better, plus they do have a great selection of beers on tap, and the exotic weiners are pretty good.
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!!

We cannot tell you how excited we are about our Wek’Fest Pre Meet at the 8th Wonder Brewery with The Chronicles! It’s taken some serious planning, yelling, killing and whoring around to make this happen. We are putting all of our resources together for this one epic Street Style meet, and you had better not miss it.
So by now you guys have seen Khiem’s 2JZGTE powered Vintage Red FD RX-7 all over the interwebz. Believe me when I say his motor choice gets tons of hate from the rotary purists, but it’s what makes the world go round. People’s preferences in modifying cars is exactly that- a preference. The way we look at it, every car is a blank canvas, and with each modification done, it is an extension of oneself. In Khiem’s case, he’s owned a 500+whp Lexus SC300 and before that, he’s owned a 500+whp Honda Accord, so his obvious addiction is horsepower. But there is another FD. A “twinsie”, so to speak. Just like Justin Rogers’ white kouki S14 on silver TE37’s resembles Aubre Houck’s white kouki S14 on silver TE37’s, we have another Vintage Red FD RX-7 owned by another Team Mayday Garage member, but his preference is the finicky but cool rotary powered 13B-REW. The FD is about to hit the paint booth soon in preparation for WekFest TX with the new wide fenders and body work. Soon, this FD will join with Khiem’s 7 to wreak havoc in our hometown of Houston, TX, also home to December 15th’s WekFest TX held at George R. Brown Convention center. Be sure to check the car in it’s natural habitat at our Official WekFest Pre-Meet held at 8th Wonder Brewery the night before for an unforgettable time with Team Mayday Garage.
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.
