Kristin Bedford: Cruise Night

Available on Amazon / Photography / Books

When we think of really nice cars the mind tends to go the rare vintage route—a red Jaguar E-Type, maybe—or the tomorrow-today route: Hello, silver Tesla cybertruck!

It’s shiny,” says Bomb Life Car Club’s Tommy Brizuela of the lowrider. “It’s full of gleam and glamour, and it’s like rolling out the red carpet in Hollywood on a Sunday night and showing your best.” Here’s hoping Jerry Seinfeld picks up his next guest in one of these. —J.V.
