    Import Reactor, the show of all shows that brings Teams all over Texas together in conjunction with another event, Anime Matsuri. Who would have thought to bring these two groups of people together to share a passion for Japanese Car Culture and Japanese Anime Culture? And while the event was off to a rough start in the beginning, it clearly picked up toward the end as the event coordinators did their best to tie up loose ends and fix the initial chaos that ensued the morning of March 18th. But while all of that was occurring, Strictly Gís was up bright and early and ready for a great show.

    Most of us gravitate toward the fastest, most powerful model in any performance car range because, as we all know, speed thrills.

    Such is the case in Japan, where Nissan fields two versions of the long-running Skyline sport sedan, kissing cousins to the Infiniti G37 sedan sold in the U.S. Chances are that most of us would slap down our money on the hood of the Nissan Skyline 370GT with its 3.7-liter V6. After all, it has the most punch, the most tech as well as the most speed and, in the current universe of the Skyline V36-Series sedan, it's the hottest ticket in town.

    But wait. With a bit less fanfare, Nissan can also offer you the Nissan Skyline 250GT. The looks are just the same and it still packs a hard-edged V6 like the 370GT. It is cheaper, and while it has less power ...

    I took a cruise through the Three Twisted Sisters on Tuesday 2/13/2010. Many of you may have never heard of them. For those unfamiliar, it is a route through the Texas Hill Country with beautiful scenery and some very challenging and in some cases treacherous roads. It has been long known and traveled by the motorcycle cruising community, but Iíve never seen or heard much in the automotive enthusiast crowd about them. So I decided to take the ride myself and write a small overview for any that might like to go as well. Iím glad I went.

    My personal experience on my first cruise through the Sisters was absolutely wonderful. It was all that Iíd heard it was and more. The only negatives on my trip were 1) intermittent light rainfall and drizzle and 2) an anxious passenger who was far less excited and eager for a spirited hill country drive than I was (Iím not calling any names but Iím married to her). This somewhat limited my ability to push the envelope as much as I would have alone, but even still it was quite an exciting experience.

    First, the location and route. The Three Twisted Sisters are located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country about 65 miles northwest of San Antonio. There most direct route to get there from Houston is west on Interstate I-10 to Kerrville. Kerrville is about a 4 Ĺ hour drive from Houston, this is more of a whole weekend cruise than a single day trip. In Kerrville, I take TX Hwy 16 S. (Medina Highway) to Medina. Kerrville is a great place to top off the fuel tank, check tire pressures, fluids, spare tire, and make sure everything is in top shape for the ride, ...

    Our meet at Bear Creek Park in Houston, TX was a huge success. The park itself was massive, had a lot of shaded areas, and it was secluded from all the soccer activities going on that day. A couple of people went to the grocery store to buy the food and supplies, while the rest claimed a pavilion which wasnít reserved by us. Finders keepers losers weepers I say. Well it just so happened the pavilion we took shelter in was reserved by a woman and her three friends, and we had a group of about 30. Thankfully, she was nice enough to share the pavilion with us.

    Jeremy and Gabe manned the grill like George Foreman and Emeril Lagasse doing tag-team cooking. They both did a great job of cooking the burgers, fajitas, chicken, short ribs, hot dogs, sausages and boudin. We had sides such as potato chips, potato salad, fried rice, brownies, cake and pie. Drinks included beer, soda, water, iced tea, and a member from CentexVQ made sure he brought a little part of 6th street with him to Houston.
