Texas Heat Wave 2019

Born 30 years ago, annual Texas custom truck & car show welcomes all kinds, including Fords.

Austin, Texas. The capital of the Lone Star State, known for its live music scene, its burgeoning tech scene, and for being a place where nothing is too strange or out of place. The city also has tons of events and festivals from one end of the year to the other, covering everything from kites, bats, and hot sauce, to whatever happens at SXSW.

Speaking of events and festivals, Austin is also home to an annual custom car and truck show known as Texas Heat Wave, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary July 26th through 28th.

Founded by two Austin-based custom truck clubs in 1989, Texas Heat Wave has grown to be one of the largest car and truck shows in the state, with similar events put on by the organizers up and down East and South Texas.

After some concern as to where this year’s Texas Heat Wave would be held back in late 2018, the show will return to its home, the Travis County Expo Center, for its 30th anniversary. And there will be a lot of awards up for grabs, such as Best of Show, Best Truck, Best Female Ride, and so on.

Aside from the custom competition, Texas Heat Wave has monster truck exhibitions, motorcycle and BMX stunt shows, burnout contests, even lawnmower racing. And if you want to bring your custom Ford truck to the party, you can register here. Admission prices range from $25 for a spectator day pass, to $110 for bringing your lifted F-250, low-ridin’ Ranger, or street-terrorizin’ F1 hot rod to the show’s indoor display area.

Since launching her professional writing career nearly a decade ago as a fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. The automotive expert was even the editor-in-chief of a popular online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Currently, the highly-regarded automotive journalist is a frequent contributor to the high-traffic Internet Brands Auto Group websites Rennlist, Club Lexus, LS1Tech and Mustang Forums, among others.

Aubernon’s expert knowledge of all things Ford trucks has also made her a mainstay as one of the most prolific writers on Ford Truck Enthusiasts and F-150 Online.
