Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
For years, Juxtapoz favorites Robert Williams, Eric White, Von Dutch, and Big Daddy Roth have depicted their love of car culture and cinema with a sense of nostalgia and pride. There have even been a few Drive Ins sneaking their way into the works. Sadly, if you live in America, that slice of history is leaving us, as many Drive-In theaters are vanishing across the US due to high costs.
