Although I post images on my website of all the car shows we go to, sometimes I send extended coverage to HOT ROD HOT LINE. To visit their website, click on their logo above or to go directly to our images, go to hotrodhotline.com/leal-brothers.
Still posting Houston area "Cruise Night" images from 2019 that were never posted. Actually I'm on my final event coverages. Pearland was my last update, the Pasadena Friday Night Cruise is posted right now on our "RODDING" page and I'll finish up on my next update with coverage from the popular Saturday Night Cruise in Kemah. Check back soon!
DriverSource supplied three "feature" vehicles for the January edition of the Houston Coffee & Cars
gathering this past weekend. They brought a 1971 BMW 2002 Cabriolet, a 1965 Porsche 356 C and a Porsche 911 Carrera S Endurance Racing Edition.
As always, I follow my "FEATURE" vehicle images with the "EXOTICS" (below) including Vipers and late model Corvettes. Again, these are from the Houston January Coffee & Cars gathering.
I hope you enjoy the above images as much as I enjoy taking them and sharing them. Unfortunately, I won't be posting them for at least two months. Due to some very stupid incidents that happened during the January edition of the Houston Coffee & Cars event, the popular event is "on hold" for two months. Since most of the "incidents" were performed by late model muscle cars (Chargers, Challengers, Camaros, Mustangs), early changes are to ban these types of cars from the event. One thing I've learned over the years...Police Departments have zero tolerance for this stuff and they WILL SHUT IT DOWN! I watched several videos of vehicles leaving the event doing burnouts in traffic as spectators were standing and even crossing the street! Seriously!
I was on the internet recently and came across this wild looking four-door 1980 Corvette that is currently for sale at a California (Milpitas) dealership. A California (Pasadena) custom shop was commissioned by Chevrolet forty years ago to begin building the Corvette but production was shelved after only six were built. The estimated sale price of $35,000 was too far above the Corvette's $13,000 base price. Only two of the Corvettes are known to exist. With only 21,000 miles on the stock 350ci engine, the Vette's sale price is $102,526.
Since all of my Houston based relatives are big Houston Texans fans, I wished them (Texans and relatives) good luck going into the first round of the NFL playoffs last weekend against the Buffalo Bills. Well they prevailed in overtime and now visit the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round. Although I'm not a Texans fan, again good luck to them and again good luck to all my relatives.
A few more images from the January Houston Coffee & Cars gathering. They are grouped accordingly with my favorite being the rare vehicles (bottom) that I don't see very often including a great looking Maserati (top, right).
Luckey's Rod Run
to the Chicken Oil Company
January 12, 2020 (Sunday)
Due to a sudden family medical issue, my brother and I might not make it to Bryan to cover LUCKEY'S ROD RUN in Bryan. I've posted images below (Trucks, Rods, Street Machines) from our visit to Bryan last year (2019). The Texas Rod Run is centrally located just 170 miles from San Antonio, Dallas and Fort Worth and only 100 miles from Houston and Austin so vehicles show up from all over the state.
