 Lowrider Summary
Lowriders are very often classic cars from the 1950s which rode low to begin with, although large numbers of 1940s and 1960s cars are also so modified, and to a lesser degree newer vehicles.
Lowriders traditionally feature small (to be able to tuck beneath the wheelwell and allow the lowest ride height), gold or chrome spoke wheels with or without knockoffs and whitewall tires.
Lowriders were originally unique to Chicano culture, but have since become common to urban youth culture in general.
