I should probably be ashamed of using a The Fast and the Furious quote as a title, but truth be told, I’m not. Not in the least. When opportunities present themselves, it’s best to take the shot. When Dom famously says to Brian, “You can have any brew you want, as long as it’s a Corona,” he quite clearly wasn’t referencing vintage Toyotas, but in this case, I’m making a stretch and connecting the dots.

The Porsche 911 has a certain draw to it. Seemingly any owner will tell you that the body lines of the world-famous marque prove irresistible and that no substitute will do.

The lowrider scene has enamored and captivated us for as long as we can remember. It’s a realm in which every minute detail is thought out, each car expressing more individuality than we could ever dream of. No bolt left un-chromed, no surface left un-etched, and no panel left un-flaked. It is the culmination of decades of culture combined with automotive heritage and enthusiasm.
