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.

Garza began customizing the car in 2003 and didn’t stop until 2007. First, he mini-tubbed it to make room for bigger tires and had Ignacio Aragon of Ike’s Garage add front and rear disc brakes, along with help from Frank Felan. All of the body work on the car’s been done by Joseph Aragon, while most of the paint and frame work is credited to Robert Escobedo, who added the murals in 2010. “We were gonna set it up as something simple for a show.
