    I was reading about Larry Watson and am wondering rather people consider the Bellflower cars lowriders or what? I mean they have the stuff like lowered stance, patterns, webbing, lace , show pipes and etc. Anyway Im just wonder rather others consider them to be the original lowriders.

    I think of these as the predecessors to modern lowriders. Today they're kustoms, but I've seen the "Bellflower Car" term used as well.

    If they were lowriders, they wouldnt be called bellflower... The roots of customcars, lowriders, bellflower, even leadsleds are the same but they identified themselves throughout the years as different styles. It would make no sense to start naming 2 styles that look alike the same, before we know it every customized car is a lowrider...
