It matters not what walk of life you may come from, commitment, passion and dedication know no social class, economic climate, race, creed, or color. Car guys, we’re all the same, whether it is on the ¼ mile strip, the oval course, the Boulevard, or the dirt track. We love what we do, and we do what we love, furthermore; we’re passionate about it. Take for perfect example the Tovar Brothers. Growing up in their humble home in Hawaiian Gardens California, these brothers carved for themselves a respectable reputation as solid custom car builders. Starting in their youth, in the family two car garage, is where their collective talent blossomed. Decades later they still have the same dedication and passion for car building.
Call them what you may, Lowriders, hot rodders, lead sled builders…..I’ll call then genuine, honest and real. I was privileged to have spent a few hours on Sunday with them shooting photos of their exquisite rides. What you see here are the outtakes, the better photos will be in the Lowrider book that Marco Patino and myself are shooting and writing. Stay tuned for more.
