House Industries Exhibition at Luther’s Austin

House Industries is descending upon Luther’s Austin for a high octane hoedown that rides the fine line between art, commerce, haute design and true dirt-under-the-fingernails craftsmanship. Hike your eyeballs on a fresh coat of hand-rubbed House Industries original art, finely tuned over-engineered consumer products and, for one night only, Angel Cruz’s incomparable C1932 Ford five-window coupe.

House Industries kicks off the exhibition with a short duh-sign lecture at the Austin Speed Shop, where they’ll break down their 17-year history of clutchless paradigm speed shifts. Angelo Cruz will also recount his gas pump-jockey dreams and how they manifested themselves into his C1932 Ford coupe. After skipping around a few oil puddles and sheet metal shavings, attendees can adjust their chin-stroke grease goatees for the short ride over to Luther’s on SoCo for the 7:30 exhibition opening.

“I just said that I liked Angelo's '32 coupe, but pretty soon these guys from House were talkin’ about paintin’ a sign on the side of my shop and making my logo look like a snake,” said Luther‘s and Austin Speed Shop owner Cory Moore. “Can you mix graphic design, fonts and hot rods? I dunno, but we’re sure gonna find out.”

The Austin Speed Shop is at 1414 S. Lamar and Luther’s is at 1200 S. Congress Ave. in Austin, Texas.
