The 2012 Texas Heat Wave custom truck, car and audio show was held this weekend in Austin Texas at the Texas Expo Center. This event supplies an opportunity for car enthusiasts to show off their vehicles and for vendors to display the latest in car accessories. Rowdy Huff, 15 months old, is no match for these 58-inch specialty tires on this 1998 GMC Yukon SUV owned by San Marcos resident Cato Martinez. Rowdy’s parents placed him inside the wheels for a family snapshot. “I don’t do this for myself.” said Martinez. “I do it for the kids. They get a kick out of it.”
