Theme Tuesdays: Vintage Lowrider Extravaganza


The concept of theme Tuesdays here on Stance Is Everything is simple, every Tuesday I pick a theme and post a collection of vehicles with that theme that meet the stance criteria (modified suspension that suit the vehicles intent). This weeks theme Tuesday topic is: Vintage Lowriders

This one might be a little weird for some of you and if so I apologize but I fell asleep Saturday night watching the Barrett Jackson Auction, woke up Saturday morning in time to watch Living The Low Life with Vida Guerra, and then yesterday after reading a Speed Hunters article on Eric Big Daddy Roth I stumbled across some vintage pictures of vintage low riders.

I figured all of this was some sort of divine intervention telling me to post some real classic stuff for this weeks theme so I searched for some vintage low rider scans on google and this is what I dug up.

Hopefully you guys enjoy!

Photo Scans

Imagine this was the family car growing up?
Slammed Corvair, big afro
Lots of time and love into this paintjob
Classic lowrider style on a classic bug
Gotta love the vintage graffiti in this one
Strawberry Jam!
The hair and open shirt make this photo
How can you not want this in your driveway?
A Riviera I do believe

New pics of classic rides

I love these paint jobs...
Crushed velvet explosion!

Magazine Scans

Not a lowrider but not a car I was going to leave out
I love this gen Trans Am, normally in Smokey and the Bandit Trim but this works
Imagine when muscle cars and gas were plentiful?
Too sick
Low ridin, side pipin, suicide doored classic Mustang... crazy
I still dream about the same things today...
Seems like in those days models wore more clothes
Lol surprisingly no drug references in this article
Another bug, this time a magazine feature
If you have never been to a hop contest I suggest you try to get to one
Till the bolts fall out the license plate
Finish things off with a cool little article

Since these are all obviously classic material and non watermarked here are the threads/pages I got the pictures from:
Kid Duece on flickr
The H.A.M.B
Los Boulevardos

Big shout out to all the people who scanned these and I can only hope that our generation documents our past as well and that it’s so fun to look back on later


  1. I’m not into low riders, but I do like my cars low. So there might something there lol

    I like that Boyhood dreams picture. I like it so much I want to remake it, but more modern with imports instead of domestics.

    We’ll see

  2. Why do they make it sound like a bad thing when they say “The lift system can cost up to $250”

    Sigh… the good ol’ days!
