    <span style=\'color:blue\'>RIP Larry Watson. The "Bellflower" is a custom car style that the gavachos were building back in the days and continue to build them today. Gavachos did not call this style of car a lowrider because they felt lowriders were a Mexican thing. How times have changed big time.</span>

    "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."


    The king has left the building. RIP

    I thought in those days it was the driver , and not the car, that was called a lowrider.

    In the mid to late 60's these were the way lowrider cars looked, the term lowrider did not become common until late 60's/early 70's... Lakers and belflower pipes were very popular as well as tv antenas and writing on the side back window and organ pipes..
    First came hub caps, then chrome rims with baby moons, then supremes, then Craigers, Rockets n Fenton's came along, tru Spokes in the early 70's..
    Also not everyone rode on 520's and they didn't become popular till the late 60's, early 70's.. The main reason for using them in Cali is because of the to low law, it stated nothing could hang below the bottom of your rim and the 520 had a low profile..
    Hydro's were'nt that popular in the late 60's / early 70's...
