Wekfest Texas Pre-Meet


October 17, 2015
Moon Tower Inn
Houston, TX


The night before any Wekfest event on their list of cities in the tour is when one of the most anticipated gatherings take place. And the Mayday Garage hosted night meet was no exception. In fact, the gathering was so big that it took at least 3 blocks of the area. The place was packed with interesting cars and excited spectators. Indeed, it was the perfect appetizer to whet our appetites for Wekfest Texas the following day.

A Gathering of Bulls


Lamborghini Festival
October 10, 2015
Navasota, TX


The Lamborghini Festival this year was bigger than ever, with more impressive and rare cars in attendance. What was also nice about the festival is that it is not purely exclusive to just Lamborghinis. Other makes were welcomed, so it isn't out of the ordinary to see a couple of Ferraris joining in on the fun. We joined the festival at their drive and meet-up in Navasota, Texas, which is a good 70 or so miles from Houston. The stampede started at City Centre and finished at Navasota's City Hall.

countach!

Lamborghini Countach LP400
Lamborghini Festival
October 10, 2015
Navasota, TX


The Lamborghini Countach was a revolutionary design courtesy of Marcello Gandini at Bertone Design Studio. The striking design paved the way for the succeeding Lamborghinis up to this day. Its flat, wide and forward-centric form were comprised of simple trapezoidal shapes that give the car an impactful presence. Today's modern "bulls" owe their notably handsome and brute appearance to this classic model that even was not named after a fighting bull.
