The Series Returns
The Lowrider Garage series headed north to Lodi, Ca, to visit legendary painter Steve Fernandes, whose talents include candy and pearl fade-aways, color-blending, pin-stripping, air-brushing, and he’s even added the art of engraving to his repertoire as of late. He’s applied his talents to many award-winning lowriders and has filled many magazine pages with his colorful and creative styles as either cover or centerfold features.
That 1-2 Punch!
One of the many famous and Iconic creations Steve had the pleasure of expressing his talents on was Kenny and Leroy’s Punch ’84. Back in the mid-90s, this truck was last seen loading up the famous “Lowrider Truck of the Year” 7-foot trophies, and there hasn’t been a sight of it in action for almost 25 years. Punch ’84 still looks like 1995 all over again and it hasn’t missed a beat either, and that’s a tribute to Steve Fernandes’ craftsmanship and experience as very few paint jobs last over 10 years.
