WTF Friday: Lowrider style Auburn Speedster

1

Until this car I had never heard of Auburn in the automotive context (only bmx) however when I saw this car I instantly became interested. After a quick stop on wiki I learned that Auburn’s only existed way before my time (1900-1936) before going under due to the fact that their cars, while beautiful, were not really priced correct for the depression era.

Unsurprisingly, today, both Auburns and Auburn replica Auburns are quite rare which is what makes this car even more unique.

Randy, the owner of this car has named it Sofia, and it’s actually got a Ford 429 under the hood, he has a full feature in the November 2010 Lowrider Magazine which is available online for more info.

In this article Randy states that the first night he had this car home he cut the floor so that he could get it on the ground.

You have to love a guy with unique taste and the willingness to cut up a 40,000 car the day he bought it.

Love the profile of this car, and the pin striping on the fender
Style King indeed
I would love to see this car rollin' down the road
Sick custom Style Kings steering wheel
If you drove this you would look this cool as well.

Site Updates

Nothing new site wise other than I am still slacking on getting things ready for SEMA, however I should get around to some of that over the weekend.

Orders in the store have really picked up lately so a huge thanks to everyone for the support and purchases. Be sure to send in the pictures of the stickers on your ride as I really want to check them out.

Flashback Friday

Keeping with the low rider theme here is a flash back to one of my favorite Theme Tuesday posts Vintage Lowrider Extravaganza, I should do another one of these.

I need to put this up in my garage

  1. I’d prefer a stock Delahaye type 165, but this is just awesome. I don’t like the wheel though, not the most useable thing in the world.
