The Drive – Custom Cars and Their Builders
This is an attempt to document the custom car culture in all its manifestations, starting with resto-mods up to modern JDM style builds and what’s even more interesting for us – the custom off-road vehicles.
There aren’t many books available for the fans of custom vehicles today in the era of digital media, but the team over at Gestalten publishing decided to treat them all with a very notable photobook – The Drive: Custom Cars and Their Builders.
This is an attempt to document the custom car culture in all its manifestations, starting with resto-mods up to modern JDM style builds and what’s even more interesting for us – the custom off-road vehicles. On the pages of this book, you will find astonishing pictures of the world-famous automotive photographers and the most notable builds. If you’ve ever heard of the company called ICON founded by famous customizer and engineer Jonathan Ward than you will be glad to find his creations among hundreds of other interesting projects highlighted on the pages of this book.
Every project vehicle is illustrated with high-quality photos and comes with detailed technical information and specs, giving you the full insight at the build.
The amount of inspiration that you can get from flipping through the pages is hard to overestimate, thanks to the strong visual and aesthetic impact.
The Drive: Custom Cars and Their Builders will be highly appreciated by any car guy, and if it happens to get into the hands of a non-car guy it will immediately spark the interest in his head. In other words, it’s an excellent gift for yourself, your kid, friend or any other person you would like to surprise.
“Readers who aren’t all that interested in the auto world will be surprised and thrilled by the incredibly comprehensive content within because rather than just being for rev-heads, this book has been thoughtfully put together to touch on history, design and (of course) the characters who obsess over their cars.”
“Gestalten publishes a car bible for the real-life fast and furious . . . The Drive is the sort of book Vin Diesel has on his coffee table. Each page is another sumptuous, tricked-out racer, plucked from the entire pantheon of dream cars.”
