Summer time in Florida: most people think of it as sunny blue skies and lots of people at the beach. BUT, they forget the part of the 1 million percent humidity and the late afternoon/early evening showers! That’s okay. Because summer time also kicks off car show season!

One of these shows this year was the I Love Driving Slow (ILDS) Cars and Beaches which is held at EG Simmons Park down in Apollo Beach, FL. Unfortunately, HighwayStar Garage did not vend at this show this year as they did previously, but we were down there to hang out with friends, old and new, and to take in the sights of what decided to roll down there.

We were thankful that our friends at Simply Clean let us hang out at their booth for most of the show. It is always a fun time hanging out with these guys, and some times can get a little wild. But that is to be explained later on. 😉

Forge Motorsports was in full attendance at the show this year and brought their Mk1 Berg Cup out to play!

ILDS Faction was in full swing with some of their heavy hitters!

You can always find cars repping HighwayStar Garage at just about any car show in Florida now! Like this awesome big wing Miata!

Camber much? Apparently was rocking roughly -16 degrees camber in the rear. 😀

And then you get some fun cars like this widebody Miata by Travis Howard…

…Or this dumped Ford truck on air…

…Or this ridiculously clean VW Mk6 from our good friend Paul who also is the creator and host of the Eurotripper Event!

As the day went on and it got hotter, crazy things started to happen due to heat, and maybe some other influences:

All was in good fun, and was great to meet these lovely ladies to hang out and goof off with them! As for BrandNu, well, that is his usual self. 😉 We love you BrandNu! 😀
