Along with our country area being known for horse lovers and horse breeders, we’re also becoming somewhat an area with the fondness for mechanical horsepower. We’ve got a lot of car enthusiasts in the area, and have several annual classic car shows
and with lots of scenic country back roads to cruise your classic rod or favorite bike.  The main attraction is the world-known builder of specialty cars Hennessey Performance Engineering  just outside Sealy. You’ll also find Bumberas Performance, a high performance and classic auto restoration shop. Guided tours are available for both. So, if the excitement, sights & sounds of internal combustion engines really gets your blood pumping, or you just need a relaxing drive in the country, Austin County could be the place for you.
