    So, I had the most strange experience at the Sacramento Autorama yesterday.
    I’ve been going on and off since I was a small child, because, of course, I eat breathe and live cars! Every once in a while, a car will give me goosebumps, and such, and I think “That’s beautiful I’m in love”...But, this experience I had when I went into the low rider exhibit, just to see some of the beautiful craftsmanship, and I’ve always kind of liked low riders, (it’s a California thing!)...
    But when I rounded the corner and saw this deep deep Brandywine Candy 59’ impala convertible....the hair, on my arms stood up so high, they were straight, and I felt lightheaded, and in ecstasy! It was the strangest thing I’ve ever experienced! It’s just a car! I’m not particularly in to Chevys. I’m a Ford guy, but I do like some Chevys! American graffiti did that with the white 58 impala I’ve always wanted one of those, but then I saw this 59 convertible! It’s hard to explain unless you were there, but the paint was so deep and so candy like, you wanted to jump into it! Then when I saw the whole car and the work that was involved, and the body lines, and everything. I just had like, this outer body experience!
    It was so strange! I instantly felt like I was cheating on my 33, and the traditional hot rod scene, because I was lusting over this low rider, but I swear, you had to be there to see it! Even the truest diehard Hotrodder would appreciate it!

    I’m just sharing this on the traditional forum because that’s what I belong to, but I also appreciate cars of all makes and models and styles, I’m not prejudiced that way! My point is, those low riders have so much work involved you wouldn’t believe it! it’s not all gang bang and pimp stuff, it’s just another car culture, is the point I’m making, and me being a mature adult, I can appreciate the work involved!
    Pictures don’t do it justice!

    I’ve had that feeling a few times, like the first time I saw Blake’s 27 up close, and the Ala Kart.

    no matter how much you like low riders, they are not hotrods and they definitely are not traditional hotrods
