If you’ve been to California or even if you have not, you have likely heard of the California Custom car culture. The warm climate lends itself to lavishing time and money on making your ride look the best. We saw some good examples during our week in San Diego. I am not sure our rental Kia Soul qualifies, but, hey, why not. If only we could have got it in a brighter colour.
Hey you over there, look at me here,
all shiny and bright as I draw near.
Out on the street in my pride and joy,
everyone’s staring, boy oh boy.
Classics, low riders, cars of all kind,
prettier autos, you’ll never find.
Hear my sweet exhaust, feel the ground quake,
Don’t roll your eyes or give head a shake.
You didn’t see me? I feel your pain!
Don’t worry bro, I’ll drive by again.
Parked on the street or just plain cruisin’,
My custom pastime keeps amusin’.
