The Austin car scene is one of acceleration, turbo power, and a highly polished motorist community. If you search for the meaning of community, you’ll find the definition as people who share common interests. There’s something special about being a car nut which brings us all together on a more personal level. We form friendships through cars and get to know people we otherwise might’ve passed by in the street. Cars are the glue that hold us together.
We all need something to keep us going in life. Something to aim for. Something to strive for. For us auto enthusiasts, we dream about cars. Austin certainly allows for those dreams to come true. With the median household income of over $80,000/year and roughly 10 billionaires currently residing in the Austin zip codes, the likelihood of catching a glimpse of some flashy chrome and hearing the low rumble of a thrush turbo muffler are fairly high. A quick drive through any of the luxury high rises and suddenly you’re in a multi-level car show. Not to mention the area is riddled with venues and events specifically catered to motorheads, like car clubs and raceways.
