Import Extravaganza – TX2K21 Streets

April 23rd, 2021

  When these gearheads are not laying it down on the track, they take all the smack talk, posturing and competitive spirit to the streets (of Mexico).

The imports were the feature attraction, and they did not disappoint. First up is a contest between an all-wheel drive K20 turbo hatchback Honda Civic and a – hold up, the cops arrive and shut the whole thing down. That necessitates a change Read More
