As 2013 winds down, and we at HighwayStar Garage get ready for the 2014 year, there is still one last car show for the year that we attended in Tampa, FL: I Love Driving Slow Winterfest 2013! Held at the Tampa Executive Airport, Winterfest is a car show for all makes and models, including our 2 wheeled friends (whether motorcycles or ruckus’s)! In addition to the show, ILDS once again has partnered up with Toys for Tots to raise donations for such a worthy cause!

As one of the vendors at Winterfest, we were able to get a spot within the hanger that the show was hosted at.

Unfortunately, this show was one of the last times we got to see Kam’s beautiful GS complete. Due to unforeseen events (we at HighwayStar Garage are glad Kam is okay), the GS is no more. We know Kam will come back bigger and better than before, but his GS will definitely be missed.

All makes and models were out at the event, including this truck with a beautiful etched glass lift gate!
