Wekfest Houston 2013

Wekfest is one the best car shows to attend. I remember last year when it was held in Austin, the rollin itself was awesome. Just passing through the prescreen is an accomplishment already. I know I wasn’t gonna win shows but just making it was dope. Honestly its one of the few shows I would register my car, and request time off. Wekfest showcases top quality cars, awesome builds, which some are built in shops and others built in garages. Wekfest Texas was held this year in Houston for the first time and was bigger than last year.

Rollin in time for our team was 9am which was better because at least I had time to take shots before people came in and to detail my car. It gave Thaison to do some last minute Wekfest prep which was to put the Lexan windows in.

Being a VW fan this was one of the nicest build I’ve seen, a lot of custom work done and by the owner too. This MK1 Golf took 2nd best VW.

Congrats to my homie, Thaison for taking 2nd place best Toyota, and his girlfriend Allison for helping helping and putting up with his build hahaha. A lot of sleepless night has been put into this car, but hard work pays off. His car is a true garage build, and great person too.

On a side note, I was reading Stickydiljoe comment on The Chonicles website, “I sometimes wonder where some of these car crews get their Japanese crew names from; like, does it actually mean something to them or did they just decide to pick whatever Japanese word they saw at the moment and attached “garage” or “crew”, etc. to the end of it. It’s a little odd if it just doesn’t mean anything… I think if it was to be a “correct” Japanese club name, the more appropriate order for it would be “Garage Natsukashi” which actually flows a little better, but what the fuck do I know, haha… sorry, just rambling on…”

To answer that, we didn’t choose a Japanese name and slapped garage and called it a day. Natuskashi means, a longing of the past, a nostalgic feeling. Having fond memories of the past. 2010 is when we formed Natsukashi Garage and I’ve been friends with some of them since high school and college. We blog about our builds, talk about cars and capture the memories about the car culture. Its a life journey of our passion for cars.
