Stop trying to be the coolest and just try to be passionate

When does a car stop being a car and become something more? A passion? A love? A friend? This past weekend, a friend of mine referred to his car as a piece of metal and didn’t understand why people thought it was so great.  I told him, that there comes a time for any builder, artist or person when something grows and takes a life of its own. Almost like a flower in a garden or a child in the womb. I believe, that depending on your dedication to something, it can grow from being an inanimate object to something that lives and breathes just like we do. At one time, the car you all know as Roxanne was a beater. Something that I would use to drive me back and forth to work and road trips to see my friends and family. She never complained, never hiccupped and never left my side. My other projects have left but she has remained. She has seen me through 3 relationships, carried me through some of the hardest days of my life and has never complained. It’s funny how we make a connection with a car. When you get in an accident you don’t say the car got in an accident, you say “I” was in an accident. We make such a connection with this device, a tool if you will, that it depends on you and you depend on it. The best word I can describe this with is an affair. My car, Roxanne has been with me for 5 years, 6 if you count the time she spent with my brother. What I’m getting at, is now, a lot of our younger generation seem to […]

HighwayStar Garage presents Festivals of Speed – St Petersburg 2013

I consider myself an automobile enthusiast. Anything with fuel and a steering wheel and you have my full attention. Any time I get an invite through facebook I get excited. Now a days doing car related things on the weekend takes up all my time and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I didn’t get to make it out to this event but our great HighwayStar Patrick did. Check out some of the cool cars that were out and check out his gallery below!     Visit Patrick’s Flickr gallery for more pics!   [flickr-gallery mode=”photoset” photoset=”72157633225771838″]

Inside the HighwayStar Garage

While cars unite us it’s friendships and family that keep us together. I’ve been living behind a computer all my life. I rarely posted or showed my face because I do not enjoy popularity or people knowing candid details about me. For the past few years or so I’ve been in the limelight and I don’t know why. I like to think i’m a private person, while I document a lot of my life through several media outlets and have since I was about 16 or so I was closing in on a very scary number. So instead of running out of town again, I decided to invite some friends over just to hang out, converse and play with cars. Here are some snap shots from our Saturday. Thank you to Lauren and Ramon for making this a very special day. Everyone else thank you for hanging out with me and showing me how important I am. To everyone reading this, remember you are only as good as the company you keep. Baby Lauren is excited to play with Roxanne HighwayStar’s newest addition. Antoines 135i. Ms Alexandra of #demyogapants fame yours truly
