For more than 34 years, Dick DeLoach has made a career of chronicling his lifelong passion, the automobile. Though raised in Colorado, his heart was always in the California Car Culture. As the editor of his college newspaper in Denver, his love of writing and photography grew. Finally, just before his 30th birthday, DeLoach and his family moved to Southern California so he could pursue his dream of becoming an automotive journalist.
From the early days of lead sleds and custom vans, to mini trucks, street rods, lowriders and sport compacts, this prolific journalist has had more than 1,250 features and technical articles published in some two dozen national and international consumer and trade magazines. He was editor of Truckin’ Magazine for several years, then technical editor for Lowrider Magazine (and unofficial “Lowrider Ambassador” at large) for nearly 16 years. During that time he also freelanced to EDGE, Street Rodder and Vette magazines.
For the past two years DeLoach has contributed heavily to DUB Magazine, and has added Street Trucks, King of the Street, Street Low, Speed Style Magazine and HotrodHotline to his list of credits.
DeLoach was lucky enough to marry his soul mate (Cindy) nearly 44 years ago and is the proud father of one son, Tate. When not attending a car show or a swap meet, or on deadline, he enjoys playing computer games with his grandson Michael.
