Interviews from the Subculture: Juan CapoBrian Tschiegg10/01/13 11:00amFiled to: DonksChevroletDodgeChargerCamaro694EditPromoteShare to KinjaGo to permalinkWhen I was a kid, I remember driving through Atlanta with my family on our way to Florida. It was dark and the lights on the side of the highway illuminated a car pulling up on our left. The lights played over the bright green paint and I lifted my head from the window sill to look up at a Chevy Caprice. It wasn't too long before we saw another one and another one and another one. All brightly-colored and riding on impossibly big rims. It's hard to forget the first time you see a donk.Born in the Miami, the term donk came from the Impala's logo which someone, somewhere at some time thought looked surprisingly like a donkey. The term stuck, but it also means other cars that are not Impalas from a certain period of time are not donks (If would like to know the other classifications of hi-risers, check out this link). A hi-riser is any car large, American sedan or coupe that has been modified with large rims and a lifted body. They are usually brightly colored, and occasionally themed. It's claimed that they are the most hated car culture, but I think there's room for everyone who loves cars.
