We were sorry to hear via social media this week, of the demise of the Austin Speed Shop building on South Lamarr, in Austin, Texas. The building has hosted a lot of cool events over the years, not least their infamous Friday night party night on the weekend of the Lone Star Round Up. We’ve had the pleasure of hanging out there a couple of times while at the LSRU, and there was always a great vibe around the place, of course, the free booze and live bands in the parking lot, helped a lot!
A lot of people will have great memories of the place, which has now been torn down to make way for trendy downtown apartments. However, the good news is that A.S.S. have found a new home in the South East of the city at 3507 Chapman Lane, just off Highway 71, which by all accounts is bigger and promises to be as big a draw to hot rodders as the old one.
