9781932494655: The Electroline Diaries: A journey with the Burbank Choppers car club

If you haven t noticed, traditional hot rodding is back in a big way. Among the scene s biggest players are the members of an exclusive club known as the Burbank Choppers. The Choppers gained prominence recently with an appearance on the TLC show RIDES, but this recent fame belies the fact that they ve been living and promoting their brand of traditional hot rod and custom car philosophy for more than 15 years. The Choppers Aaron Kahan, Deron Wright, Jon Fisher, Keith Weesner, Sandy Wachs, and Verne Hammond have appeared in every major hot rodding magazine and fanzine, including Rod and Custom, The Rodder s Journal, Car Kulture Deluxe, and many more, building a worldwide reputation.
In The Electroline Diaries, author Laurent Bagnard follows the Choppers through southern California, Las Vegas, and even a huge hot rod show in Yokohama, Japan, where the Choppers were guests of Mooneyes, the famed speed parts company. He captures the Choppers in their element hanging out with fellow hot rodders, catching their favorite bands, traveling to car shows far and wide, and cruising in their cars. This book is a window into the unique lifestyle of the Choppers that has influenced gearhead culture around the world.
Bagnard shot more than 3,000 photographs during his travels with the Choppers and has selected the best 275 images for this book. You can t get this close to the real hot rod life unless you re sitting in a chopped coupe with a flathead under your right foot s command. The Electroline Diaries is sure to become a landmark of car and pop culture, circa mid-00 s.
