I know these photos are already old. They were sitting on my hard drive for about seven months now. These are just some snaps from my birthday-New Year's Eve trip to New York City. This day in the pictures were mostly spent going around Manhattan buying gifts, and meeting family and friends.
86 Day in Houston was a success, I would say. It was hosted by the Mayday Garage boys at the weekly Ricer Meet. There were a total of 8 AE86's in attendance, ranging from track/drift machines to street ricers.
The Houston Coffee and Cars has been on and off this year, and they seem to be having problems with the venue, so we had to go look for an alternative for our monthly dose of cars. We decided to go to the Supercar Saturdays because it is closer to home, and I've really wanted to go to one of their meets since around April. The venue was amazing, the weather was beautiful, and the people were abiding by the rules... and their was music, too.
After a 2-month hiatus, the Houston Coffee and Cars is back! Well, it wasn't as good as the last meet two months ago, but it was a start. This month's meet was greatly hyped since the very first time the organizers originally announced the first cancellation. The "extra" exotic cars that were supposed to be present today, as promised by the organizers, were not present at the meet. Sure, it was disappointing to say the least, but we all should continue supporting Houston Coffee and Cars in order for the meet to improve quality-wise. Hit the jump for more photos.
The weather for the race weekend of the Grand Prix of Houston was insanely unpredictable. It was the usual bipolar Houston weather, which brought both rain and sun in the same day. Fortunately, we made it to the 2 days of the race weekend.
We probably picked the wrong day and time of year to visit the capital. It was cold and wet, since it rained for the most part of the day. With the limited time we had, we weren't able to visit a lot of places, especially the museums, but we made sure we stopped by the really famous and easily accessible ones.
During our stay in Tampa, FL for Thanksgiving Day, we got the chance to help in feeding some of the homeless people around the area. It was disheartening to see a totally different side of the city... that of homeless people. One would never have thought, from a tourist's perspective, that such a beautiful city would have such a problem.
