Information on Lowriders Mexican Art

The art of customizing a stock car into a lowrider has been a part of Mexican urban culture for many decades.

In the past, the horse was a symbol of social status and prestige in Mexico.

Nowadays, it is a car, but not any car. If you want to be cool in a Mexican hood, you got to have a lowrider.

Lowriders are very popular in Mexican cities and in the south of the United States, especially in California.

What is a lowrider?

A lowrider is a car (in most cases it is a classic car from the 1950/60) which has had its suspension system modified in such a way that it rides as low as possible.\\No, it is not a practical car but its cool, and thats the most important thing in tha hood.

A side from the lowering the suspension system many other features are modified and accessories added.

Some of those accessories are: expensive and elaborate custom paintjobs, small chrome wheels (in most cases with whitewall tires); exhaust, engine, and performance modifications; neon or LED lights, cosmetic mirrors, special seats; doors (suicide doors, gull-wing doors, scissor doors); a loud audio system, video devices (miniature TV screens embedded into the headrests, game consoles, DVD` players); hydraulics, etc.

The part that really makes a lowrider a peace of art is its exterior. Most detailed lowriders have great exteriors that only can be done by true artists.

For example, the custom paintjobs are so complex that they can only be done by a professional that is not only a professional car painter but also a very talented and experienced artist.

The paintjob consist of several thin layers of different colors, murals, flames, scripts, pinstripes, pearl flake or any other hand pained graphics.

Many of these cars, a side from being unique, are also not street-legal vehicles due to their performance modifications.
