The love of fast cars has exploded — from a rebellious underground pastime it has become a huge worldwide cult — spawning its own sub cultures in music, art and fashion. Ten years in the making Speedseekers is the ultimate book on the world of Hot rods and Kustom Kulture.
Author Alexandra Lier has spent a decade at the epicenter of the scene from the drag strips of Bakersfield to the Bonneville Salt Flats to Los Angeles’ most devotional garages, revving engines and burning rubber with the worlds foremost mechanics, racers and adrenaline junkies.
Not just for gear heads, Speedseekers covers the music, the artists and pinstripers, and of course the pin-up girls. Peek under hoods and into interiors and meet the fascinating characters that have devoted their lives to the pursuit of the ultimate rush. Full color photographs and graphics throughout. More exciting than a nitro burning supercharged Hemi.
