On August 23rd, 2015, I attended my second Torres Empire Lowrider Supershow. Held at the Los Angeles Convention Center, this car show is the largest indoor Lowrider show in the entire world- which means I didn’t want to miss it. When I checked out the Torres Empire website a few weeks ago, every aspect of the show was sold out- cars, bikes, motorcycles, the outdoor car hop, so I knew I was in for a great time.
The number one reason why I have a facination with lowriders is the attention to detail in the customization process. No matter how hard you try, you can’t rush anything- especially the pinstriping and the engraving.
I was overwhelmed with all of the vehicles that participated with the show. It wasn’t just based on quantity, but the quality of them. Not limited to just cars, this particular show also highlighted motorcycles and bikes, which is still a part of the Lowrider family. I didn’t just photograph lowriders at the Torres Empire show, I emerged myself into Los Angeles culture.
If the sneak peek wasn’t enough, feel free to check out Bernie’s 2015 Torres Empire Lowrider Supershow gallery. Thank you Los Angeles, and I look forward to see you next year.
