Lowriders in LA

Artist Coop went to a lowrider car show/contest in LA's Elysian Park. He posted a ton of great photos from the day (including the one above).
Artist and hotrodder Robert Williams points to the example of the Indian longrifle as one of many instances of humans’ interaction with, and need to transform, the impersonal products of the Industrial Revolution into something more relatable, more human, something with a soul. Hot rodding and car customization are a part of this long history, too. Perhaps the most perfect example, in fact.


I love these cars, and the culture around them. To me, they represent everything that is beautiful, crazy, and wonderful about L.A.
