From the very first moment I saw my cousins lowering their cars in my parents’ driveway during the late ‘80s, I knew it absolutely was more than just a bunch of punk asses wanting to go out and cruise the streets just for fun. bumpy, low and loud as they were, this was a form of “cool” for them, a way to show their peers that these cars represented a piece of who these were as low. While they only had limited options to actually modify (we’re talking wheels, cut springs, an air an, filter and muffler aftermarket head unit) compared to the things you see in Super Street today, their stories are no different than the generations who came before and those that have yet to be told. All that money spent, the horsepower gained, the shit talking endured to have wheels that happen to be just too wide with rubber so thin as well as the fix-it tickets received are what comes along with the territory of planning to be your identiity. For those of you reading who can relate, it’s one of the primary outlets I will think of, though no, the hobby of tricking cars out as a form of self-expression is nothing revolutionary.
Personalities shine through once you look at rows of cars at a meet or show. You can’t break down nationality, race or sex-and it doesn’t really matter. If someone’s into simple and easy clean or perhaps is a JDM purist-or maybe they’re none of that and care only to spend the kind of dough that’s gonna put them into the 9-second mark on the drag strip with out a care with regards to how the car looks, you know. Dig a little bit deeper if you want (not that you need to) and you’ll find people who are just as obsessive about other things in your life and devote just as much passion as they would to their cars, just because they think doing and being the best in anything you do is what will separate you from the rest at the end of the day. That’s things i love about cars that literally brings people together; you can be who you really are, make your car what you want it to be and be respected for it (not always the case, but never let that bring you down). This issue is stuffed with personality, as you’ll soon see…
