I have never been to a Lowrider event. I’ve seen a few at Kennedy Commons, but that was about it. I’ve always loved them from a far. Dr.Dre, Snoop and Xzibit adding to the allure. The great thing about lowriders, every one seems to love them. Stance, muscle, import, euro, jdm etc, all of these scenes divide public interest. While Lowriders are seemingly ogled by all. I’m glad Dave from Stanceiseverything.com posted up the show info a few days ago. It was a great way to spend the Saturday.
The Impala is the quintessential Lowrider. Chilango (above) and I think the 2 below define the scene.
While I love the Impalas, I was really drawn to the Cadillacs. The HUGE body with very boxy design cues, abide with my love for land yachts.
Face down, ass up.
Land yacht defined.
Another staple is the classic G-body. This includes, Regals, Monte Carlos, and Cutlesses. The above Cutless broke a chain. Off course, jacking up a corner is as easily as hittin a switch.
I should have stayed a bit longer. This Lincoln obliterated it’s grill in the hoping competition. Link.
In the lowrider world, crowds flock to the open trunk, rather than the open hood.
The above Eighty-8, is for sale on the Toronto Kijiji page, if anyone is interested.
Its safe to say I’ve been on a Lowrider binge since going to this event. Including numerous Kijiji (craigslist) searches and many many youtube videos.
