Agreed

Now if you want to talk about fashionable cars; Houston is what it is! lol

lol...Yeah, Houston would kind of be the Alpha and Omega of cars in Texas imo...I like North Texas' car styles too, but they are more in line with what you find throughout the rest of the south. It doesnt seem as unique to Dallas as Houston's car scene is to Houston

True. You have lots of car shows around North Texas and Central Texas. However, car shows in Houston are like a tradition or a holiday (Slab Holiday).

Yeah, I dont know how big people consider Los Magnificos but I always wanted to go to that...I know they always hyped it up on the radio station.

This is true.

Balanced is the best. Just saying, where I'm at, you can tell the difference between who is from where (for the most part).

Houston does have a VERY unique car scene. Who else puts NEON signs on the roof of there trunks? I think it looks cool. Did that originate in Houston?

This is one thing I've never understood, at least the whole putting neon lights in your car. I've only ever seen them on the underside. Same goes for all kinds of decoration like that. To me that says COP MAGNET. Might as well put a 420 sticker on my car. Personally, I like to keep my car toned down and inconspicuous. but that's just me.

For real. And I will admit, as impressive looking and neat as these vehicles are, no self-respecting grown man with a REAL JOB drives a car like that. Atleast that's what I was taught coming up.

I dont think any self respecting person with a real job drives a car that looks anything like whats popular everywhere now...lol..it would be interesting if I saw someone pull up to work in the parking garage with neon lights, and their trunk open though... or with huge rims and a crazy paint job, and hop out and walk into the office like a regular worker.
