The Drive: Custom Cars and Their Builders
Handcrafted, radical, and subversive, these custom cars are designed and made by a small number of specialists around the globe. From early hot rods and lowriders to modern tuning, The Drive breaks down barriers between custom car scenes and spotlights the best of the best.
The book provides detailed portraits of numerous personas and projects. Bold photo spreads, profiles of builders, and exclusive essays celebrate the variety of automotive craftsmanship. The Drive presents a voluptuous variety of unique cars from around the world. Automobiles have been tuned, restored, and rebuilt for years, but whether made for leisurely cruising or peak performance, today's machines are more interesting than ever before.
Featuring ambassadors like Ken Block and Magnus Walker, innovators like Ringbrothers and ICON, legends like George Barris and RE-Amemiya, and many others. The story told with The Drive showcases the diversity and reach of this custom movement. Each car is utterly unique; each builder a true personality. Passion and craft join within the walls of their workshops in North America, Europe, and Asia. The resulting vehicles - and this book - are for anyone for whom a car is undoubtedly more than just a way to get around. Buckle up for a world tour of custom car culture.
