Living in Florida, we sometimes take things for granted. Things like the abundance of beaches and (usually) bright sunshine (with the occasional afternoon showers). Luckily, I Love Driving Slow has taken full advantage of both of these things Florida has to offer us. Car and Beaches was hosted at Ruskin Park in Tampa, FL as a way to enjoy the cars that came out for this event, as well as enjoy the beach (or at least Tampa Bay) that was next to the park. As usual, HighwayStar Garage was there vending at the event with new prospects, as well as honored members. Betty and Roxanne made it out to the event to get some sun. As some of you know, Betty, unfortunately, is no longer with the HighwayStar family. No worries, she is in good hands. HighwayStar Ramon will debut his new girl some time soon when she is ready. Even our two wheel friends made it out to the event, even though there wasn’t much road to ride around on. This dragster 280 was pretty damn dope! And some of the other cars that came out to the event! And last but not least, a nice shot of some of the ladies there that went to the beach To see other photos from the event: HighwayStar Patrick’s Flickr – ILDS: Cars and Beaches 4

I wanted at times to move past it and grow like my friends did. Settle down, go to college, become a scholar like my father and grandfather before me, but i can’t. I’ve loved and lost and this passion still remains. I cannot move past it. It’s all i think about, the road, the empty highway. The sun comes down, the headlights come on and the sound of the tires the bumps in the road moving the car. The steering wheel in your hands, your hands begin to sweat. The fantasy. I dreamed of becoming a better driver. I put time and money into parts that i think did the correct work to make me faster, but in reality it was me that needed to improve not the car. What I’m saying is, if an idea can move you so much that you become something else entirely. Make sure the idea is worth dying for because it will not leave you. It will be implanted with you and be passed on to your children. For me this idea has been driving. It has never left me as hard as I’ve tried. It’s consumed me since I was a child. When I drove my first car at 10, it was all I […]
