‘Bellissima!: The Italian Automotive Renaissance, 1945 to 1975’
‘The Drive: Custom Cars and Their Builders’
If you or someone you know is interested in custom cars and the people who create them, there’s a new photo book being published later this summer that might just qualify as a must-purchase. It’s called The Drive: Custom Cars and Their Builders from editors Maximilian Funk and Robert Klanten.
The Drive covers custom automobiles from all four corners of the globe, in the same format that characterized previous custom motorcycle books The Ride and The Ride 2nd Gear. Classic European sports cars, hot rods, lowriders, and more, from customizers like Ken Block, Magnus Walker, Ringbrothers, ICON, and others are all featured in the book’s 256 pages. Every car in the book is a one-of-a-kind custom project, and the book as a whole is purported to be “for anyone for whom a car is so much more than just a way to get around.”
The Drive: Custom Cars and Their Builders will hit shelves in July, but if you’re jonesing you can place a pre-order for just under $50 at the book’s Amazon listing right here.
