still rolling ’em out

SAM CHAVIRA, FIREMAN, POLITICIAN, CLASSIC "BOMB" ENTHUSIASTRADIO PERSONALITY, XAVIER THE X-MANWhen we first envisioned Roll Models it began as a concept to increase our social media awareness. The creation of this YouTube segment was somewhat of a cog in the machine, a piece of the puzzle, a segment of our master plan, but once we realized what we had, we wanted to take full advantage of this visual platform to increase the awareness of lowriding, but with one big difference. This time around we wanted to concentrate on what powers our rides—and we’re not talking about the motor. Whereas the print version of Lowrider magazine focuses primarily on the car itself, Roll Models was used to explore and celebrate the driver. By doing so, we’ve created a channel that champions…

dirty deal

Leaving your car at any shop to get worked on is exciting—at least in the beginning. But as the days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months, it can also become a worrisome adventure. This is the case for Kyle Giuffre.After dropping off his ’61 bubbletop to a local shop, the car became entangled in a legal battle that would drag on so long that he wound up purchasing a ’61 convertible. While Kyle didn’t want to get into the details of the legal battle, he did sit down with us to share his experience building his ’61 that’s packed to the brim with plenty of mods and great memories. It’s an epic story that reminds us to not only admire the custom cars we see, but to understand…

2019 grand national roadster show

Cold winter months and less-than-ideal conditions make it the perfect time for our cars to go into hibernation. Now for those lucky enough to have their cars done, it’s a time when our cars sit under covers with trickle chargers topping off our batteries. For others, it’s time to do all the things we had been planning during the summer. Come January, it’s time to get ready for pressure season and as we start changing fluids and polishing our paint there is always one constant reminder that show season is about to begin and it’s marked by the Grand National Roadster Show (GNRS)—the first major show of the season.The GNRS is one of SoCal’s premier shows, and this year celebrates its 70th anniversary. Ringing in the year with 600 cars…

duke city hustler

After you’ve built your fair share of Impalas, it’s easy to get bored. Either you’ll flip it to build another, or buy another to add to the collection. But either way, if the collection is missing a ’57 then you already know what has to be done. The ’57 is one of those timeless pieces of Americana and a staple in the lowrider scene. It’s the car that breaks hearts—and bank accounts—and for Bugs, it was his calling.So when his friend Johnny Sanchez put up a decent ’57 for sale, it took away half the battle, so he struck a deal and started what you now see here. Starting with a decent runner helps expedite a quicker build, so he did a once-over on the car and created a ’vert…

cruise night

'50 CHEVY SEDAN DELIVERY | CRUISE NIGHTThe older you get the more you seem to forget. It’s a part of life, and a part of aging, but on the flipside, there are those special moments you’ll never forget. From your first kiss to your first love, there are memories that will forever be ingrained into our heads and among those has to be your first car—especially if it’s one you had always dreamt of building.Just ask Tom Hagenson. He grew up in a period of time that was void of social media. For him, being social meant hitting up Van Nuys Boulevard or Bob’s Big Boy. These were the hot spots where car lovers went to show off the fruit of their labor and for Tom, his pride and joy…
