IM IN LOVE! AND IM A FORD GUY! sweet lil chevy..
Sorry, but it looks like a heap of shit to me
Sorry this pic wasnt up to your guys standards.The car is on the road and not on a trailer so it must not be to much of a heap of shit!
awww, now you hurt his feelings...
I have to agree with the POS part. Really need to fix that crap. Just bagging a rusty old car without fixing anything is crap. And it sure as hell doesn't make it fit this thread or the HAMB.
i have too agree with zman on this, that car is not lowrider worthy compared to the beautiful and well done cars and trucks that have graced the pages on this thread, needs to be finished before being posted here, the car does have tons of potential.
goddamn, I love this thread!!!
It`s not to often you see Lowriders back in the day cutting there inner fender wells and altering there frames to get a car in the weeds. This look is not popular in this thread. A different look for a different generation of people.
No my feelings are not hurt zman.Most of us younger guys dont have good classic tin to choose from.We drive work in progress cars and this angers the older crowd for some wierd reason.But lets get off this topic and start checking out the lows.
Love it or hate it, thats a hell of alot of work and you gotta respect it.
i've seen that car in person i think [ at paso 07'ish ? ] and i thought it was pretty rad.
I would not call that car a "heap of shit"
Now back to the pics .....................
Looking forward to sunshine and warmer days.
^^^ L O V E this thing man!!! Killer!
hey Mike, if you don't mind me asking are you still working on LOW LUX? i don't really go on SSM anymore and not in the loop in the mini truckin world.
Yeah we're still going with it, little by little What you up to now-a-days?
SCREW YOU! wheres your pic of your car? THAT CAR IS BAD ASS!
I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to add my 2 cents in. That 59 Buick IS GOOD Classic Tin! It doesn't look like a rust bucket, the body looks straight and I think along with the 59 Impala, the 59 Buick is one of the best looking cars GM built in the late 50's. I'm assuming people are calling it a heap because it's a rolling project in a thread full of beautifully done traditional lowriders. And to be honest, just because it's bagged, channeled and scrapes frame doesn't mean it's a lowrider which to me it isn't. I think that's what rubbed people the wrong way including myself on this thread. But props on driving your car and having fun with it while you restore it. It looks like a great start & hope to see it finished one day. Here's some inspiration
That 59 buick is nice! I never thought I would like low riders but you guys have turned me!
heres one no bags!
Don't know if these vids have been posted but here you go

for those of you that didn't know, mr gypsy rose JESSIE VALDEZ passed on this weekend! sad day in the low rider world RIP!
Sad to hear. The Gypsy Rose is definitely a pioneer in lowriding history. RIP Jessie Valdez.
Also it was the 1st lowrider on national T.V. in Chico and the Man
I have known Jessie since the early 70's.. Very sad news.
Pictures of my cars ...... search for "4 to 2 door conversion on a 52 chevy with pics" Let me know what you think
The other POS might look good someday, but today, I dont think that it does IMO
Kiss my ass. I think your opinion is overrated.
It's a known fact that the '64 Impala "is" the quintessential low-rider.
