Los Angeles's nickname of The Entertainment Capital of the World is well-earned, not least thanks to certain Sam Torres, the king of low riders.


This car enthusiast grew up around these cool, customised vehicles, known for their bling and ability to hop up on two back wheels, and now hosts the Torres Empire – the biggest get-together for low riders anywhere in the world.

Described by Torres as part-car show, part-family meeting, the thousands of individually-painted low riders with spectacular designs really are a feast for the eyes, and you too can take a look inside by enjoying the video above.
