9780890133736: Low 'n Slow: Lowriding in New Mexico

This colorful volume is a celebration of the customized lowrider cars that are a vital part of a particular Hispanic subculture in New Mexico. They have amazing custom paint jobs, upholstery, steering wheels, and even murals on the hood, trunk, or sides. Parsons has photographed many of these cars and their owners, capturing them in the New Mexico landscape of adobe churches and wide blue skies. Padilla's text complements the photographs with profiles of the cars' owners and creators, and Arellano's dialogs in lowrider slang give the reader a taste of the lifestyle. The exceptional photographs evoke a uniquely New Mexican experience that will capture the interest of many readers.

Review:

"'Low 'n slow' is a wonderful tribute to lowriders everywhere. When I read it, I shouted to my jaina, 'Hey honey, let's go cruising!.' -- Rudolfo Anaya, advance praise

"Ask any lowrider and he'll tell you: The car is an art form. . . . Ay, que lindo. Beautiful." -- The Los Angeles Times, April 20, 1999

"Savor this book as you would a long and languorous drive, all the windows down, as you marvel at the spectacle of life rolling by." -- Denise Chavez, advance praise

"Take a joyride through the pages . . . Jack Parsons' 106 sprawling color photographs . . . capture some of the most striking cars against dramatic, sun-drenched landscapes." -- Latina, May 1999
