Hot Import Nights Houston 2013

You have to read between the lines to get a clear picture of Hot Import Nights Houston 2013. The automotive festival tours the country presenting the best in new cars with a heavy dose of music and (here's the important part) lots of beautiful models in skimpy bikinis. Attractions are listed as hundreds of customized rides, a nightclub atmosphere, music by DJ Talent and industry models in a Model Lounge (translation: models in skimpy bikinis standing around), a GoGo Competition (models in skimpy bikinis dancing) and fashion show (models in skimpy bikinis walking). Yes, there'll be hundreds of cars on display — and most of them will have a model in a skimpy bikini draped across the hood.
