Did you know that some cars can dance? It's true--some custom car owners install hydraulics systems that allow their vehicles to move up and down to music. That's just one of the intriguing facts in Lowriders, one of the "Wild Rides!" series. Some people assume that "lowrider" means "gang vehicle," but apparently plenty of folks just like supremely customized cars. The book explains the work involved to change a factory-stock car into a low-to-the-ground, lovingly embellished "barrio" or "lead sled." The author notes that some people paint their vehicles in regional styles, while others use images to honor friends, family members, famous people or even war veterans. "Owners think of each vehicle as a work of art," Parr writes. A "High-Interest Book" by Capstone. 2002, Capstone, $21.26. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Donna Freedman
