Stop 9 of the DUB Supershow brought the tour to the Reliant Center in Houston, TX. The DUB crew rolled into Houston in a grandios manner, complete with three of the most blinging 18-Wheelers you’ll ever see. More than 15,000 spectators packed the 300,000 sq. feet center to see the car show and the concerts. Musical acts such as LIL’FLIP and Twista kept the crowd hoppin, and Super Model Vida Guerra was on hand in the Boost Mobile booth to sign autographs. Not surprisingly, the Boost Mobile booth had a line of patient spectators wrapped around it twice, just to get a glimpse of Vida. Debuting on the tour and on display in Houston were the DUB Edition Dodge Charger RT, DUB Edition Jeep Commander (Look for our Jeep Commander First Drive soon!), DUB Executive Stretch K300 Chrysler 300C, and the DUB Executive Stretch K500 Mercedes-Benz S500. As with every DUB Magazine event, celebrity cars were stars of the show with rides from The Game, Twista, 50 Cent, T.I., Shaquille O’Neal and many others.
We have put up 399 photos of the event for your viewing. Enjoy the gallery!

Prancing horses and raging bulls graced this year’s Italian Concorso over looking Monterey Bay, California. Normally when you think of California, you are reminded by everyone that it’s always sunny. But that is not always true. When you live on the coast or have a beautiful concours show grace the Black Horse Golf Course, one would expect to have sunny skies. This year in the middle of August you found yourself with overcast skies and a jacket in hand as temperatures were in the middle 50’s all day long. Read More

The piercing shriek of the alarm clock awakens me at 2:30am. It’s time to get up and head to the Pomona Swap Meet and Car Show. You’re probably asking yourself why I’m waking up at 2:30am to go to a car show – well, the Pomona Swap Meet is not your every day, run-of-the-mill swap meet. The Pomona Meet is the Hershey Car Show of the West Coast. There are thousands of cars and trucks of all vintages in attendance at this event. According to event officials, the swap meet and show areas of the grounds stretch 15 miles long, typically filled with over 4,000 vehicles for show or sale. Back to why I woke up at 2:30am – the show starts at 5am and ends at 2pm. No, that’s not a typo, this meet starts before some people have even gone to bed from the night before. Since I live in the Central Valley of California, Pomona is two and half hours away. Even being a devoted and passionate automotive enthusiast, I was still reluctant to get up that early in the morning. I dragged myself out of bed thinking “this event had better be good.” Read More
