    I agree that the bellflower or custom style was a predecessor to the modern lowrider style. It all depended on where you lived as to what style lowrider you would build. Actually a lot of the current "kustom" cars are using vintage lowrider characteristics again, it kinda went full circle.

    RIP Larry Watson! We are losing some really big names.

    I still own one but it needs a needle. I left the needle on the record and drove around like that. rookie move.

    forget it youre too narrowminded to understand

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steampunk
    Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by enthusiasts into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style.[26][27] Example objects include computer keyboards and electric guitars.[28] The goal of such redesigns is to employ appropriate materials (such as polished brass, iron, wood, and leather) with design elements and craftsmanship consistent with the Victorian era.[6][29]

    esotericism has nothing to do about it

    "Larry Watson, The King of Kandy In 1960 Larry applied his first Metalflake job on Ron Aguirre's Corvette, the X-Sonic. The X-Sonic did also feature Watsons first fade paint job. As Aguirre kept modifying the car, Watson painted it six times. Between 1960 and 1966 Larry got tired of all the masking and striping, and he started doing mostly straight candies with Metalflake or Pearl tops, or Pearl bottoms with matching Candy tops. In 1963 or 1964 Larry did his first Coweb paint design on a 1963 Pontiac. Larry developed the Coweb paint look by spraying Acrylic Lacquer without using thinner in it. Larry was kicking ass working anything from 12 to 20 hours a day, 7 days a week. He had 5 or 6 helpers. At the peak, Larry sold the shop he had on Lakeward Boulevard in Paramount in 1966, and moved to Mexico in order to pursue an acting career with his wife. While Larry was away, two other "Watson" custom paint shops sprung up, one in Downey, and one in Burbank. When Larry returned to California in late 1966 he opened up a new shop on Artesia in Lakewood. Larry determined that he had to get his name back on the show circuit, so he decided to do something completely new for the upcoming show at the Los Angeles Sports Arena in April 1967. Larry was painting Doug Carney's 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix for the show, and decided to do a lace paint job on the car. Ha had never tried the technique before.one year after Larry painted Doug's Pontiac. Larry's newly painted Pontiac made it's debut at the April 1967 show together with 53 other cars in the center arena of the car show, who was sponsored by the Tridents Car Club. At the same show he also had over two dozen motorcycles upstairs. At that point he figured that he couldn't get any further, and he decided to sell the shop and get out of the business."
