The Highway 74'z
Written by: Jose D. Chavez - Founder of Coachella Valley Z and Elite Z
The Midnight 74's, a car group who dedicate most of their paychecks on suspension, cosmetic and performance parts. The thrill and the rush to look and be fast among everyone else has become the main goal. As rightful heirs to highway 74, they have been known to be seen riding at night when no one is commuting the road. Attacking 74 with precision, effectiveness and establishing dominance over the mountain is what they are known for.
In 2015, The Midnight 74's crew were formed and bonded between two friends whom both shared the same love for cars. Breaking necks and gaining the respect of other street racers is top priority. But both enjoy cruising and sharing the road as well. It is not a competition until, they make it one. Picture two friends connecting, ripping the streets in an almost hypnotizing dance-like fashion while weaving in and out of traffic. If you find someone who shares the same passion, you will find a longtime friend or rival.
Steve faced many hard turns in his life but never gave up and always found a way to conquer his mountains. Twenty-one and expecting a baby, he vowed to turn his hobby into something that would help provide him with the means to survive and maintain his family.
Jose, thirty-years old, and getting married, Always found a way to downshift his way out of a tough spot for his family and has continued to move forward in life with his soon-to-be wife. Money struggles have always plagued him, but he has vowed to create something out of his passion for driving. His future depends on it.
During all this, they always found a way to meet up and cruise the 74 together. They always found a way to be financially stable for their builds and bills. Mentally, they were sound and ready for the mountain. But things were not always like this for, when they met, they both considered each other enemies. One claimed himself as the rightful heir to 74 while the other contested it. They will soon face a battle that could both cost them their lives, the creation of The Midnight 74's crew and the rightful heir to the mountain...
