Algoma's use of the AutoLooks font
We are always glad to meet a fan and in some ways are flattered if they want to use us for their own work. But it seems that a fellow northern company has decided to use the same font as us. Sure we were flattered when we found it as maybe this will help drive some more viewers to our site and vice versa. But it was uncanny as to how much the new logo for the newly formed Algoma Steel Inc. was to that of our AutoArt page (see blow for reference).
How two men changed the lowrider culture.
Well we have hit that day in Canada where it is now legal to smoke and carry marijuana. Sure we still don't condone its use while driving, but we will talk about how two great men changed one car culture through their movies.
Back in the 70's when Detroit was pumping out performance model after performance model, L.A. was moving on from the speed culture which they had created. With a large influence from the hispanic or latino market they were moving onto the next wave of car culture. Sure the big three weren't finished with their muscle cars, but California partially was.
During this time two men from the area began working on their first mainstream movie, which was about to change the perception on two things. One being the high use of "Mary Jane" during the 70's and the other was the introduction of that wonderful 64' Impala the "Love Machine". With this car Cheech and Chong would fore ever change the perception of term low rider.
It's now hard to believe how one rusted up car from a stoner movie could make such an influence, but really it did. From then on it seemed that the very car culture which they were showing off, took off and with good cause. But again this was California, a state which has given us the hot rod and the import tuner scenes.
