Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Detroit Art Gallery Exhibit Looks at the Nationwide Spread of Lowriding

Posted April 14, 2015 10:00 AM by dstrohl

Though often considered an automotive subculture geographically limited to Southern California, lowriding has spread across the country, from South Central to Kentucky and from New Mexico to Chicago. That nationwide reach-along with the culture and the aesthetic of the lowrider-lies at the heart of a new photo exhibit to take place not in L.A., but in Detroit.

"The cars might have been built here in Detroit, but they went all over the world, and the car customization cultures eventually made it back here," said Erik Paul Howard, curator of the photo exhibit.

I guess it is a form of expression, compression and extension to be able to experience the effect of driving over a set of unusually bad railroad tracks at speed, whenever desired. This might be a way to illustrate the experience to the politicians who would otherwise ignor complaints from concerned citizens. "Hey, this isn't my limo" Uh, it's to blend in senator,you know, and it is easy to get in and out of if your portly. "What did you say?" Uh, it's easy to get in if your important sir.
