The History Of Lowriders
Lowriders started around the 1920s when Henry Ford released the Model T, after the Model T got released alot of other car styles came out and were popular throughout LA. around the 60s Young chicanos who moved into LA looking for jobs would customize these cars with plush interiors, lowered chassis, layers of paint and decals all over the body of the car, and chrome fancy spoked rims. Later in the 1970s lowriders became popular all over and a new technology got released for them, hydraulics. Hydraulics allowed the cars to raise up to get over speed bumps and police checks to see how low the cars were, later this evolved into the very popular bouncing of hydraulics, sometimes called hydros. Nowadays lowriders are very expensive and can cost up to 25 000 dollars for one customization !
