The Ron Aguirre Photo Collection
Ron Aguirre of Rialto, California was a pioneer in the field of hydraulic lifted cars, and in the late 1950s he built a custom Corvette, known as the X-Sonic. The X-Sonic was for many year acknowledged as the first car ever using hydraulics to raise and lower the front suspension. The X-Sonic was also the first show car featuring a bubble top plastic roof. After fighting bone cancer for a while, Ron Aguirre passed away Thursday, May 26th, 2011. Before he passed away, he shared his photo collection with Kustomrama so we could share it with the world.
