I Love Driving Slow Winterfest

Words and photos by HighwayStar Patrick As 2014 winded down, so does the car show season. Except for a select few like the I Love Driving Slow (ILDS) Winterfest that has been held at the Tampa Executive Airport in Tampa, FL for the past couple years. What better way to show off some awesome looking car than with a huge hanger, a large airstrip, and some small planes (part of the airport is shut down for the show, but the majority of the airport is still open and active while the event is going on)! Once again, HighwayStar Garage came out to show support to an huge, and still growing event. And by huge and growing, the event actually ran out of spectator parking because of the amount of influx the event had by mid afternoon! As we got to the airport at 7am to set up in the cold weather and enormous hangar that would be packed by noon, we got some opportunities to get some early morning shots of some beautiful cars as they slowly funneled in. As we setup, our booth cars got into position to show off some of our beauties. Including HighwayStar Steven’s recently unveiled widebody Honda S2000: And as the influx of cars showed up to show parking, the variety and diversity of modified cars started to flood in. Even a chameleon Rudolf decided to stop by for the event, haha! And even more beautiful cars kept coming in: But, in the end, like every car show or event we go to, the focus is always about the friends, family and fans that we meet and hang out! And as we go into 2015, we hope to see more […]

Ringing in the New Year!

As we look back onto 2014, and get ready for 2015, HighwayStar Garage has seen a lot of growth! That growth has not only been internal, but also external with our supporters and fans. We all may be both near and far (even cross continental. Can’t wait for you to come home Andrew!) But our bond will always remain strong among us. Here at HighwayStar Garage, we would like to thank each and every one of you! Not only for believed in us, but for standing by us and showing us the love that we hope we show to each one of you! As we push into the new year, our el presidente, HighwayStar Manny, has a couple words for our great support base: “To all our supporters. Friends. Family. Brothers and gear heads. Thank you for everything. We do this for you. It’s not about money. Or shirts. Or vinyl. It’s about the stories. The miles. The roads that lead us to today. I love and we love each and everyone one of you. Wear #highwaystar proud. Remember that without you, we are nothing. And, without our passion, we are nothing. Passion over fashion, and truth over fame. Till next year kids.”

Simply Clean 6

Words and photos by HighwayStar Patrick. Simply Clean at Destination Daytona has always been one of the favorite shows that the HighwayStar family love to attend every year! The show isn’t about awards, contest, or trophies. It’s a show about coming together and hanging with friends: old and new, near and far. Hosted by Mr. Simply Clean himself, Nickoli, and many of his close friends, family and staff, we here at HighwayStar Garage would like to thank him and his staff for all their hard work they put into this event every year! This year (just like last year), a pre-meet was held by and at CCW Wheels in Daytona. CCW was very generous and gracious in opening their doors to the public Friday night, after business hours. And the highlight of this year’s pre-meet, at least for us in the HighwayStar family and friends, was HighwayStar Steven/Doritos unveiling Summer, his S2000, with its newly added wide body kit! This kit, which was installed by De’Caudella’s Auto Body Shop, was something in the works by Steven for some time now. Steven kept it such a closely guarded secret, that, even the HighwayStar family wasn’t full aware that he had gotten the kit installed! Congratulations to Steven and his car Summer for such an awesome make over! Saturday morning. Weather was a little on the cool side for us Floridians that morning. But, that doesn’t stop the plethora of people waiting to get in, even at 7am in the morning (even though general admission doesn’t start till 9am, haha. Sorry guys.). People from all over the state, as well as all over the country, come to take part in this event. Not because they have anything […]

The Auto Combine 2014

Words and photos by HighwayStar Patrick Back in 2012, a show popped up Green Cove Springs, FL called the Auto Combine. The premise: a fun car get together with food trucks, music, raffles, and …. dodge ball? Fast forward to 2014, and the Auto Combine is back!…. minus the dodge ball, haha. The Auto Combine this year was held in the same place as previous: an old abandoned industrial lot with some derelict buildings, a huge parking lot area, and an abandoned hangar bay in Green Cove Springs, FL. Even with the Florida heat and afternoon rain showers, lots of fun was had, attendance exceeded last show’s almost 1000 car attendance, and some beautiful cars showed up. Here are only a few that we were able to capture between the heat the rain: Special thanks to Noah Dellilo of Funk Fashion Clothing for setting this show up! Also, thanks to all that helped organize and maintain the event, as well as the vendors that showed up and weathered, well, the Florida weather!

ILDS Cars and Beaches 5

Words and pictures by HighwayStar Patrick 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 […]

I Love Driving Slow: Winterfest 2013

Words and Photos by HighwayStar Patrick 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. Ruckhouse was on hand with their many ruckus’s! Including Simply Clean’s all new redesigned ruckus! Ruff Brian brought out his Accord with his new reupholster leather interior Several beautiful Miatas made it out to the show including these guys: 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! And other vehicles that were out at the show: And last, but certainly not least, some shots of the people at Winterfest: Including our President, HighwayStar Manny, being “cute”, hahaha The rest of the photos can be found here: HighwayStar Patrick’s Flickr: ILDS – Winterfest 2013

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! […]
