Happening at the same time as Formula D was the Slammed Society car show. Yes, big weekend. Mayday Garage even organized a cruise of sorts for the festivities, so Wayne and I tagged along.
We all met up at sunrise in a parking lot in North Houston. Meeting, greeting, instagramming and general admiring of cars took place immediately.
A lot of familiar faces and headlights littered the parking lot.
..as well as some that I personally hadn’t gotten acquainted with yet.
But after about an hour of loitering, we all rolled out in two groups; double clutchers and granny shifters.
Most of us made it to Roanoke okay with only one ticket among us, but the impression I came away from the cruise with was that I needed to bring a little more horsepower if I wanted to keep up with a lot of the guys up front.
Midday Saturday was the actual Slammed Society car show, taking place in a little lot next to the track.
The usual players from Houston made appearances, of course.
But some of Dallas’s hottest didn’t miss out either. Always loved this Miata.
I was totally psyched to see some cars that I recognized solely by e-rep. This Eclipse in particular has always been a favorite of mine.
There were a lot of interesting styles on display at the show, but all of the nicest ones had a bit of acrophobia.
As chill and relaxing as Slammed Society was, there were slidey cars to be seen and lungs to fill with mutilated Hankooks. So after my once over of admiring, I got back to business track side. For the rest of my flix from the show, check below!
