60's Lowriders : Let Me See Them :-)

54 posts in this topic

I'd like to see some 1960's --and even early 1970's-- Lowriders , sil vous plait .

I must admit that I'm no fan of Daytons ; they're too common and *boring* to me . I prefer Cragar S/S , Appletons , Chrome-reverse , Astro Supremes , and the like ; Lancer "Spinners" are cool , too .

I've seen quite a few stunning "boulevard bouncers" on here . I grew up in west Whittier , so I used to see A LOT of Lowriders when I was a kid . Their paintjobs , their stance , their custom touches , all used to delight me ; and as a visual artist , they influenced my work immensely !

Let me see your Organ Pipe Speakers , metal flake paint , chain steeringwheel beauties !

This belongs in under glass.

I couldn't --at the time-- find a section that my inquiry would seem proper in , so I just chose "General" . I'll keep your suggestion in mind for next time .

Here's a recent beauty I've fallen in love with:

That is gorgeous ! Not sure how I missed it the first time through that section ; perhaps all of those acronymns in the thread's title bothered me or something :blink: .

Been a while since I've done one up in this style, but I sure do dig 'em.

Pardon the pic quality...these are pretty old.

I swapped out the Daytons for Astros a few years back.

Here's a few old school style lowriders. The '69 Chevelle I built when I was about 8 yrs old and just recently got it back from a cousin of mine I gave it to. The '63 Impala is just a wip I've been rebuilding from another old build of mine. It has a custom twisted clear shifter with a red clear knob, chain wheel & pip organ speakers. The Monte I know is not a early '70s, it's a '77 but it still has that flavor & thought I'd post it up anyways. It's also a work in progress. Sorry for the bad quality of pics.
