He Felt Like a Gringo: Iowahawk on Lowriders

This image was lost some time after publication.

Just yesterday, we were chatting to our pal Alex about the glory of bombas: late '30s taildragging Chevrolets customized by Mexicans, primarily in Southern California. The flathead on one side of town, the Stovebolt on the other; both the sound of a new world being born. Thee Iowahawk gives the story of the lowrider movement a good parse, handing short shrift to today's trends (rightly so, we might add) and focusing on the rich history of the movement. Totally worth a read.
