Lowriders

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Groucho, Aug 3, 2009.

  1. Sorry if this has been posted before. Thanks for this.....from Javier Mejia, a great builder that was thrown off the HAMB. We miss you;)
    PS-let's bring back Cragars/Rockets/Supremes/Tru-Spokes...as I'm just not "feelin" these 13" Daytons that are being used now

    Going to High School in San Jose in the mid 70's, lowriders like those were everywhere.

    I call the Belly Flop '65 Coupe DeVille a low rider even though it doesn't have hydros (I'm poor). Dig the ones that sit right....period.

    How is this not the most popular thread on the HAMB? I love that album and all the cars in it!!
     
  19. It's not "traditional" for most because of the era. I love it though, I have all of those saved on my computer, and I go over them looking for more details all the time.

    Wow, thanks for putting up that link Groucho. Being from the east, namely Ohio, I rarely see lowriders. That is one of the many reasons I like to visit your neck of the woods, to see them! I didn't see too many when I was out for the LA Roadster Show though :( (there is always that nice display at GNRS). Guess I wasn't in the right places? :D

    Real lowriders hail from El Paso... Not LA.

    That gallery rules though...

    This gallery is pure Lowrider Porn, i think Graverobber put a link on the kool picture thread or in some other one, anyway, well worth looking at it, expecially to those that think that Draytons are traditional. PS I would kill to see more pictures of that 69 Mustang in Lowrider clothes (and a rumble seat???) but doesnt seem to come up ever.

    I like the look, not wild about hydros but I get it. Awesome read about Andy's stuff in Garage mag too. The ol 61 bubble is heading close to that look but it's not totally practical livin in rural MI. The paint work wears me out too. Lots of traditional applications and imagination. Thanks for the re-visit.

  29. Grew up in Baldwin Park CA, big hot bed for lowriders, so I have a great appreciation for them. I am a big fan of the Bombs, but if it rolls on Supremes, I love it too. (dont get the 13" Daytons either) My 60' elco rolls on wide-whites and Supremes and doesnt sit low enough for me. Love the link Groucho, thanks!

    Very cool...I've always had visions of a Delivery done up like that...


    Has anyone seen the new section in lowrider? the "vintage" section or what ever the hell they call it...some kinda cool shit in there...Like the '69 Stang with a rumble seat, and a cool lookin' 2dr Vega? Wagon..
