White sandy beaches, cool blue water and palm trees. Is that what comes to mind when we mention the words “Long Beach?” You won’t technically see any of those with the exception of palm trees in our latest blog roll of pictures but you will see a lot of unique rides. Our second year in a row visiting Auto Con and it doesn’t let us down. See why in the photos that follow below.
Through IAS Performance with Texas Tires and Parts brings to you a driver invite only drift event. This happens only once a year during off-season due to the fact that both drivers (Randall Waters and Rudy Martinez) are heavily involved in Formula Drift and Lone Star Drift Pro-Am during on-season. So what is this Bash event? An all out exhibition so drivers can get all the practice both solo and tandem drifting in to hone in on their craft on all levels of experience. Thanks to Houston Police Academy for lending the track for this event!
Here is a look at what went down! If you are the driver of any of these cars or know any of them please direct them here for HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOS!
P.S. It’s Thanksgiving so lets give Thanks the hosts of this event Randall Waters, Missy Waters, Dewayne Ramsey and Rudy Martinez!
Ever wondered what it is like being inside the Museum of the Year? Wonder no more. A few weeks ago I visited the Los Angeles area and I just happen to have had the Petersen Automotive Museum on my bucket list. Touring this Automotive facility since it’s makeover not too long ago has been magnificent. Going through each level (there are three levels); car by car (there are hundreds of them) was like walking through a never ending gear head dream. Before I lay out all the pictures on one post I’ll show them a few pictures at a time. The Car eye candy preview starts here!
1982 Ferrari 308 GTSI – Can you believe Tom Selleck was able to fit in to this car?
1967 Toyota 2000GT – The word “Classic” is an understatement to the fire starter that is the “86”.
#95 Lightning McQueen – If you have not seen the “Cars” animated movie then go see it now!
1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 NART Spider – Put together Le Mans and Ferrari together and you have gotten a winner in the North American Racing Team.
1992 Jaguar XJ220 – Known as the “World’s Fastest Cat.”
1994 Bugatti EB 110 Super Sport Le Mans – Your modern day Bugatti of today started with this one from Ettore Bugatti.

I introduce to you Bear Dellinger, she is a multi-talented import model who not only knows how to pose in front of a camera, but she also has a passion for building race cars and drifting. She currently owns a turbo 350z, 240sx S14 and a RB25 240sx S13 (Sponsored by Rivsu Imports). Import models who also own and know how to operate fast moving cars? Yes they do exist, look her up for yourself!
Bear Dellinger, yes that is her real name, currently resides in Georgia so her southern-style hospitality traits were very welcomed here in Houston as seen in the photo’s below. As you can tell this is the NonStopTuning edition pictures, Bear was very generous in doing a little impromptu photo shoot with us during the event. We thank her for sparing some time with us during Hot Import Nights in Houston as she is a real natural at modeling. Although don’t forget that she is quite of an adrenaline junkie. We dare you to ask about the cars she owns and how much she loves drifting!
You can read and see more about her in the below links.
