An Irrational Lifestyle That Makes Perfect Sense


We give them names. Call them “baby.” Protect them with coverings. We even pass them on as family heirlooms. And we treat them with as much care as newborn children.

OK, sometimes we destroy them, but it's a risk some are willing to take.

It's not rational or practical, but there's a love burning deep inside that only we know.

We're car people. Inside and out. Working with cars is more than a paycheck or a throwaway hobby, something to pass the time. It's a passion you can't explain but that you understand with every look, touch and smell of freshly cleaned leather or burning rubber.

It doesn't matter if you're into hot pink Minis or solid black monster trucks. Or if you're obsessed with the details of door-handle craftsmanship or you chromed out your undercarriage. It’s only for your eyes—and your satisfaction.

Car lovers are an unspoken society whose members understand the rules of the road but aren't afraid to break them on the track. There's mutual respect, whatever you're into.

NASCAR race cars, cruising low-riders, your grandpa's old pickup truck and souped-up vintage sports cars. Every mile tells a story, every vehicle contains its own legends. They're a form of expression from the paint to the giddyup to the sharp turns to the slow rolling-in parking jobs. A car is a statement, each one with its own personality and shine.

Sure, cars are designed to get us from Point A to Point B. But what about the unknown journeys? Working with cars, you never know who you're going to meet or what kind of model you're going to take in or the whispers those seats have heard.

Cars Are Community

Car culture is inclusive. All are welcome, and you never feel alone. If doesn't matter if you love four wheels, two wheels, monster wheels or anything in between. It's being one with the road, designing mesmerizing pieces and putting your sweat—and yes, sometimes your tears and your blood—into every job you work on.

Cars are power. They're individuality. They're fast and they're loud and they're customized. Some deserve reverence or admiration or jaw-dropping stares. But they all deserve respect. Many say cars are freedom. We say they're everything.

The sound of the revving of an engine is our music of choice. Some cars never hit the road but they're majestic masterpiece beauties to behold. There are cars we spend hours on, toiling over every detail, to gleefully crash on the track—and get back to work to do it all over again.

You don't have to explain your love for cars. Those who understand just know.

It's work with your hands, being one with the metal, not being afraid to get down and dirty with these objects that each make a statement all their own.

Your car is an extension of you, whether you drive it every day or keep it in your garage to work on for decades. It may be a piece of machinery but the emotions cars inspire are vast.
