Redrum – 1984 Buick Regal

January 25, 2020

James Hinojosa of Houston, Texas, was introduced to lowriding at a very young age. “My father took me to an indoor lowrider show when I was 5,” he said, “I was fascinated by the style, colors, exotic interiors, and the unique paint jobs.” You could say from that minute on, he was hooked. The current Vice President of Still Rollin Car Club had the opportunity to finally buy his first custom ride when he was 19. “A Buick Regal on Roadsters was my first lowrider. That was in 1995,” James said. He owned that car for three years before it disappeared. “It was stolen and never recovered,” he said. It would be twenty years later before James got back into the lowriding game with this 1984 Regal. “I bought the car from my neighbor in 2015,” James said, “It was all original with only 28K miles.” You now may be thinking that James has a thing for Regals and you’d be right. “Buick Regal has always been my Read More...

Houston Lowriders New Year’s Picnic 2020

January 18, 2020

GoodTimes Houston front end line up For the last 14 years, the lowriding community of Houston, Texas, has come together on the first Sunday of the year for a day full of custom rides, friends, sun, and food. The date this year was January 5th. “This event began back in 2006 when the HLC first hosted the event,” said Armando “Goofy” Hernandez, Club Coordinator for Rollerz Only Houston Chapter and original founder of the Houston Lowrider Council. The HLC held the picnic annually until the council dissolved in 2012. In 2013, the four Houston area chapters of Rollerz Only hosted the event in hopes of making it an annual Rollerz event. “We took it upon ourselves to host the picnic,” said Jose Martinez, President of Rollerz Only, Gulf Coast Chapter, “Houston, Gulf Coast, Galveston, and then Eagle Lake chapters.” Rollerz wanted to elevate the excitement of the picnic. “We did games, contests, and trophies that year,” said Martinez.

Nikki Love – Car Show Hotties

January 17, 2020

Our time with the sexy Nikki Love has been pretty brief up to this point, but it also has been pretty fruitful. Though we flirted around for a couple of years through social media, we finally had a chance to work with her on a feature in the Dallas area with Kingz Car Club for Vol. 34 of StreetSeen Magazine. There, she shot with Pancho Martinez’s 2003 Chevy Avalanche named “La BurBerry”. Her work ethic on that shoot was impeccable and her personality was compatible to ours. We knew immediately that we had to work with her again. That opportunity came with the 2015 Texas Heatwave in Austin. There, she was a crowd favorite with many show participants asking her to pose with their rides for pictures. This Puerto Rican Hottie hails from the great city of San Antonio. If you’re keeping track at home, that’s a total of three Hotties we’ve featured recently from the Alamo City. This particular San Antonio Hottie was able to land the cover of Car Show Read More...

La Wawa – 1964 Chevy SS Impala Wagon

January 11, 2020

Some of you may have read the title to this article and said to yourselves, “GM never made a 64 Impala super sport wagon,” and you’d be 100% correct. That fact, however, didn’t stop Joe Meza of Houston, Texas, from making it a reality. The Vice President of the Gulf Coast Chapter of Rollerz Only Car Club wanted to build a wagon in memory of a wagon his mother used to own when he was a child. She often referred to her wagon as “La Wawa”. A simple wagon build, however, just wouldn’t do. Meza, as he’s known to his friends, was going to undertake building a vehicle that didn’t exist. Meza had been building lowriders for years. His first lowrider was a 1964 Chevy Impala SS. “I’ve been building since the age of 18; everything from Cadillacs to Impalas,” he said. This wagon entered Joe’s life back in 2013. In just the year before, Meza had completed three builds. “That year I came out really hard,” Read More...

Club Spotlight – JuiceD Car Club

January 4, 2020

If you’ve been in the Houston lowrider scene for any length of time, then you’ve definitely seen them at many of the local car shows and picnics. Though the faces have changed over their many years of existence, the name remains the same – JuiceD Car Club (Pronounced Juiced, not Juice D). The club was formed by four friends on Houston’s North and East sides back in the summer of 1994 who were looking for a change from the clubs they had been in previously. The name for their new club was clear to them. Since they all had hydraulics in their rides, like most low lows at the time, they would name this new club JuiceD. A trip to the neighborhood airbrush artist to do up some T-shirts and the boys were officially in business! Within the first five years, JuiceD grew to five chapters. They added Baytown, Pasadena, Conroe, and San Antonio to their ranks. As times and trends changed, so did the club and its membership. These days, the club is one chapter with a solid Read More...

Megan Kan – Car Show Hotties

January 3, 2020

We often referred to her as our Germanese Hottie. Half German, half Chinese, Megan Kan had the perfect look to model for us. She worked at several car shows over the last few years and has appeared in several volumes of StreetSeen Magazine. This San Antonio hottie appeared on the September 2012 cover of StreetSeen Magazine and had a very steamy layout in Car Show Hotties Volume 3. Though we first met her online a few months before, our first meeting in person would be at the 2011 San Antonio Heatwave. Since then, she quickly became one of our go to girls for many events. She’s intelligent, articulate, and let’s be honest, very easy on the eyes. StreetSeen Magazine definitely pushed her to her limits when it came to comfort. She had never worn a G-string bikini for any public modeling jobs before us, and we’re pretty sure not any after either. Her first show with us would be the Torres Empire Car Show back in 2011. Then, she carried a very nervous smile the entire Read More...
