About This Book

From early hot rods and lowriders to modern tuning: this book 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. After exploring custom motorcycles in The Ride and The Ride 2nd Gear, it’s high time to focus on the four-wheeled scene.

The Drive breaks down barriers between custom car scenes and spotlights the best of the best. European sports cars and hot rods. Lowriders and widebodies. Featuring ambassadors like Ken Block and Magnus Walker, innovators like Ringbrothers and ICON, legends like George Barris and RE-Amemiya, and many others, The Drive provides detailed portraits of numerous personas and projects. Bold photo spreads, profiles of builders, and exclusive essays celebrate the variety of automotive craftsmanship.

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.
