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.

TX86DAY is a wrap! We had over 100 86′, BRZ, FRS drivers plus special guest Formula Drift veteran Taka Aono at this event. We also had over 20 media outlets doing their photo and video thing. The success of this event has spawned major feedback from fans and drivers to do this event again next year. We agree with the positive feedback and look forward to event bigger plans for our TX86DAY in 2017!
With collaboration of Strange Rhythms we were able to bring you our coverage of TX86DAY. I will continue to do my best to have all of the media outlets out at our event as much as possible. I enjoy giving the new and current media outlets the support and shine as much as I like to cover the event my self. See everyone again next year and watch out for even more media support at our events in the near future!
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.
