*Edit* Sorry for such a late post (2 months) Sometimes I forget I write for this thing. Please forgive me friends */Edit*
Car events are always, for me at least, a place to gather with friends that you don’t get to see all the time, check out each others current projects, and have a good time. The Cupcake Meet has been doing that for quite some time now, and they did not disappoint this time around either. A main plus for these events is that all of their proceeds go towards a different charity each time, which makes the even small entry fees that much more worth it.
During this meet, I did quite a bit of thinking. Years back, going to a meet always seemed to be a rushed ordeal with large amounts of excess stress, planning, and frustration. I had some time at the start of the day to think about how much more I enjoy the whole process once I take a deep breath and just appreciate the fact that I get to have some of my closest friends in one place. It doesn’t happen often due to life changes and people living in various areas of the country/world, but when it does it’s a beautiful thing and I hope you all partake in taking in the moment much as I have.
So on that laid back note, we started the day out at First Texas Honda where Cody and Billy work.
Arick loves to think that he can look hard…. even when owning a FIAT
The Dodge Dart is a relatively new platform. I’m interested in seeing how this unfolds.
Our friend Angel has one of the coolest cars in Austin IMO
An interesting part about this meet was the fact that the entrance was a 2 way road. This created a huge traffic jam on the service roads leading to the entrance. Some people would be annoyed or even angry at this… us? We took it as an opportunity to have some fun.
Upon entering, we were immediately hit with some awesome looking cars. This s13 coupe sitting all by itself looked awesome with the widened fenders.
Roy’s IS300 is never something you’re sad to see. The amount of handcrafted goodness that has gone into this thing is ridiculous.
Squirrel Squads Lexus is on point
The homies at JDM Freshness have some really cool cars.

Thaison always ends up with some super cool old corolla. Peep his latest creation.
My God daughter Addy wanted to make an appearance.
The Pinkies Out homies peepin’ us as we rode by in the wagon
Who doesn’t love an s13 coupe though?
Your neighborhood dyno show
Just one more of the Squirrel Squad lexus
The homie Everette’s car is raw and beautiful. Who would have guessed a drift car with some VIP wheels would flow so well?
Drew’s already stunning work in progress

Some homies just having a good time
Closing this one out with Melvin’s 5 lug, h swapped hatch
