Hawaiian Utility


all images by Garage Lopez in Hawaii

Regular Influx followers will realise that we enjoy a little bit of utility chic. When we stumbled across the Garage Lopez blog, we noticed a fistful of delectable examples of useful motors – all the way from Oahu, Hawaii- via yet another French photographer with a discerning eye.

We haven’t been able to find out too much about the lensman behind the entertaining Garage Lopez blog, but we stumbled across his work via new car culture mag Garagism – an interesting looking and beautiful missive from the margins of French car culture.

There’s something about the way our cousins across the channel look at motors – and present them in a simple, uninflected way that puts design and feeling before reductionist spanner twiddling.

Vive le French Touch!
