qv11 Cover Boys

Our qv11 cover models are Warren Del Portal (back seat) and Martin Orona (front seat).

Warren is a 24-year-old sales associate whose hobbies include Salsa dancing, drawing, shopping at vintage stores and watching "I Love Lucy" reruns. Warren says the best thing about being a Latino is, "Having rhythm, enjoying the food and music, and the people-especially the men!"

Martin, age 23, is a nurse who lives in Los Angeles. He is an active person whose hobbies include sports and dancing. When asked about the best thing about being a Latino, he replied simply, "Everything!"

The car in the photo belongs to Warren and it is a 1962 T-Bird which he has named Estelle.
