Hey, I'm told that Lowriders, as car styles go, grew up longside of kustoms out here in SoCal in the late 30s. A typical bomb or a "bombacitas" is a stock bodied GM product,usually pre-1955 only instead of being shaved of trim like a "soft kustom'' is all loaded up with every extra optional chrome piece, and than some. They usually have little or no body mods, but some of the most killer paint jobs ever sprayed on steel. They also seem to be to blame for bags & hydraulics on kustoms! Anybody sittin' on photos of true "bombs" from back in the day, not the 70s showcar nightmears either? Swankey Devils C.C.
