The Love Letter

We should be thankful everyday of our lives for what we have. friends family health etc. A friend wrote this today and I wanted to share it with the world enjoy.-pp   Now that I have fully settled in, I have had some time to reflect and I have so much to be thankful for. When HighwayStar Steven introduced me to HighwayStar Manny and HighwayStar Ramon, I was basically done with the car scene. I was tired of the uppity people I raced with, I was beyond done with the children that make up the street scene and I was sick of people who were too afraid to actually drive their “show queens”. I built this car (Nadine) for me. Every other car that I built before her felt like it was for someone else. Which is why I didn’t have a problem letting them go when it came time to move out east. Ultimately I wanted a car that I could take out on the track and be competitive with, go on a 20+ hour road trip with and not worry about her breaking down, and turn some heads on the street while doing this. Before I met HighwayStar Garage, I thought I accomplished my task, but no one could see my vision. To everyone else Nadine was incomplete and unimpressive which infuriated me to no end. HighwaySTAR Garage saw me and my vision for what it was. With you I have found more than brothers for life, I have found an ideal that I could not fully articulate until I met all of you. This isn’t about being a Track Rat or a Show Queen or a Street King. It is about a bond between brothers and […]

Simply Clean 5

Photos and Words by HighwayStar Patrick It’s not a competition. These words are the basis and motto of Simply Clean. It’s not a competition. Simply Clean was created with the idea that it didn’t matter what you had, ie. – ratrod, JDM, Euro, etc., but that you executed it cleanly. It’s not a competition. These words are what compelled Simply Clean to create an event where there was no trophies; No winners or losers; But instead, a large meet where people can come together, show off the hard work that they have, and meet old and new friends. Simply Clean 5 was held at Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach, FL for the second year in the row. Destination Daytona was kind enough to not only offer their parking spaces to this event, but also surround area parking for spectators, and their main pavilion to help house and show off many beautiful vehicles. For the event, much background planning was put into place to make sure this event ran as smoothly as it did. We at HighwayStar Garage would like to thank everyone that worked and contributed to make this event possible. With as many cars that showed up for both show parking and spectator parking, below is only a glimpse of what was there at Simply Clean 5. This year at the HighwayStar Garage booth, we brought out several of our big guns to display. We are all familiar with Roxanne Racekor, but Ramon’s new girl was on display for the first time since acquiring her! Also, Doritos, Ollie and Teddy brought their beautiful ladies out for display. Last, but definitely not least, Jon, our newest HighwayStar prospect, brought his beautiful NSX out to play! […]

CCW Pre-Meet for Simply Clean 5

Complete Custom Wheels (CCW) has been a stand out wheel company in the car community for some time now. Whether you are needing a track ready wheel, or a show quality wheel, CCW is ready to fulfill your needs. Locally owned and operated in Daytona Beach, FL, CCW was kind enough to open their facility once again this year to host a Pre-Meet the night before Simply Clean. Last year, CCW hosted a Pre-Meet which had a great turn out! This years Pre-Meet turn out was just as big, if not larger! The parking lot, just like last year, could not contain all the cars that showed up. Luckily, Volusia County PD was on site to help direct traffic during the meet. This Datsun 280 was killing it! This Rocket Bunny S13 which has been featured in Canibeat was on hand for the Pre-meet! Can’t go to CCW without seeing what Dehate has setup. And this year, once again, there is no disappointment with his beautiful Miata. As stated, whether tracking or showing, CCW has got you! CCW also has many of us HighwayStars rocking their beautiful wheels. Like HighwayStar Doritos and his beautiful S2K. And some more photos from the event: The rest of the photos from the event can be found here: HighwayStar Patrick’s Flickr: CCW Pre-Meet 2013
