Houston Slab Holiday 2018
People from around the U.S. and from all walks of life got a chance to see slab cars up close at the biggest event of the year.
Slabs are older modeled American luxury sedans customized with distinctive features such as Texan Wire Wheels 30 Spoke Elbow® Wire Wheels and translucent candy paint. Beginning in the 1980s, slab culture sprouted from the vibrant heritage of Houston’s African American community, especially Houston’s beginning hip hop/rap scene.
The aesthetic of slabs has become an iconic art form that is unique to Houston and slab culture influenced Houston’s music scene and several artists including Beyonce, Paul Wall, Bun B, UGK, Z-Ro, Mike Jones, and Slim Thug.
