Street Trucks Editor Chris Hamilton Styles His Readers’ Truck Tastes

For Immediate Release Nov. 1, 2021 | Media Contact: Kevin LaTorre |
Las Vegas, NV — Chris Hamilton comes to SEMA this week, and his fourth visit to the event is the culmination of his lifelong passion for customized street trucks like those in the magazine. “I’ve been in the auto industry since before I could drive,” he says. “As an auto enthusiast, I’ve been in the industry forever.”
Hamilton began working with custom trucks by creating auto-club fliers while still in high school. “It’s what I’ve always loved,” he says, “and now I get to document custom auto enthusiasts like me.” While Hamilton is at Booth 23097 in the Central Hall for SEMA, he’s happy to explain how his passion helps him customize the tastes of Street Trucks readers and look ahead to the industry’s future: social media, event streams and electric vehicles.
After he began making fliers and websites for his auto clubs as a teenager, Hamilton began the design work that eventually led to his role as the art director at Mud Life Magazine. “I didn’t know anything about the magazine,” he says, “I was always a street trucks, low-rider kind of guy with hydraulics on my vehicles.”
Hamilton has customized and modified every vehicle he has owned. That's why his role at Street Trucks makes sense: “It’s the industry I was always into,” he says. After his work at Mud Life, his current position means he can now apply his personal passion to his profession and style his readers’ custom truck tastes.
