About MOTOR Texas

Greetings from Texas

If you love Texas, automobiles, car shows, travel, photography, small towns, historic buildings, roadside attractions, and automobile history, then you will like what we are up to!

Our Mission

It is our mission to promote and advance the automotive culture within Texas and to make known to those beyond our border the many awesome transportation related events and attractions Texas has to offer!

Texas has a rich transportation history and a Texas size list of attractions and events! We're here to make sure the word gets out!

Giving

It is important to MOTOR Texas to give to the community. We give 10 percent of our profits to charitable organizations that help people out of homelessness, provide affordable housing and help people be productive citizens.

Our Work

Here's how we work to accomplish our mission.

We List Texas Transportation Events

By far, our most popular resource is our list of transportation related events such as car shows, air shows, train events, and monthly automotive meetups (especially those sponsored by cities).

Texas is HUGE! So we also provide regional listings for Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Lubbock and San Antonio! These "Metro Sites" list events and attractions within 120 miles of the region.

We List Texas Attractions (for Auto Enthusiasts)

We regularly add attractions on MOTOR Texas that are of interest to auto enthusiasts. Some of the attractions we add are automobile museums, military museums, historic buildings (from an automobile perspective) such as old motels and motor courts, diners, roadside attractions and more!

We Write About Texas

All these Texas attractions can be overwhelming, so we try to create articles (or guides) focused on a city or a theme, such as Texas Train Rides, Things to do in Austin, Waco Attractions for Auto Enthusiasts, and Route 66 in Texas.

We also dive into Texas automobile history with articles on the development of the automobile, highways and automotive culture in Texas.

Our History

MOTOR Texas went live on November 1, 2011, but we didn't just ride into town!

The idea of MOTOR Texas came out of years of hard work building and running MOTOR Austin, an auto enthuiast web site for the good folks in Austin, Texas. If you have ever searched for car shows in Texas you might have noticed MOTOR Austin show up in your search results.

The MOTOR Austin events listing became a popular and trusted source for Austin area car shows and automotive events, so we decided to take it state wide!

Send Us Attractions!

Does your town have a unique attraction that would be of interest to auto enthusiasts? We are always looking for attractions such as unusual art made with car parts, historic buildings such as old car dealerships or drive-ins, diners with auto related themes, automobile and military museums, roadside attractions, and unique auto related businesses.
