In the early 1950’s in Southern California, the lowrider phenomena began. The goal was to get the cars as low as they would go, which often meant cutting springs and filling the trunk with sandbags. In the late 50’s and early 60’s hydraulic suspension technology was invented allowing these cars to lower and raise with the flip of a switch. Today the lowrider scene still stays true to its early 50’s roots – seeing classic vehicles as more than just a means of transportation, but as a work of art and celebrating that vision with like-minded friends & family.

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
