They couldn’t be more wrong—that beauty is all Ruby’s. The co-founder of the Califas Car Club, Ruby is one of just a few women in her local lowrider community—but with each block, she hopes to inspire others to get in on the sweet, slow fun./Great Big Story
The art of lowriding comes from the customization,the endless possibilities for making a statement with each tiny detail of a classic car.Each creative decision a lowrider makes is an expression of his or her own personal style.
