In the last decade, lowriders have roared out of the West Coast and Southwest, popping up on commercials, movies, music videos and hobby store shelves in the form of model kits. Long associated with Hispanic culture, these amazing customs are quickly gaining acceptance among car enthusiasts and the general public. Divided into chapters examining the major types of lowriders-traditional, bombs, trucks, Euros and new age-this all-color, bilingual title features stunning examples of each, emphasizing the painstaking artistic and mechanical ingenuity that goes into the cars. In addition, there's a chapter discussing lowriders overseas, and sidebars examining the phenomenon of lowrider bicycles and the mechanics of hydraulic suspensions. English and Spanish text.
