I got the wildstyle
Im with you on that homie, I'm trying to get my 64 on the ground. I want to show its heavily influenced by the 70's lowriding style but a few modern touches like chrome undercarriage. This Covid shit has been killing me up here in Ohio, I havent worked on my setup since early march. My hours slowed down and my wife owns her own business so money has been slow, trying to just hold on to everything we have until shit changes. We have been "shut down" since the second week of March. I called Ron at Black Magic to get some chrome Ted Wells cylinders but he didnt have chome ones at the time. Its all about moving up, I started with a 84 Cutlass and now have a 64 Impala and want my next to be a 38 Fleetline. You have your head in the rite place homie, LIL is dead for the most part but I always stop in here to see your updates.I’m trying the best I can. I bought this car because I knew I could build it within a year and a half. I haven’t had a lowrider in a while and wanted to get back in the streets ASAP. When this car is done it will be easier to be patient building a 64 when I get one because I will already have something to cruise. The red rocket 64 really motivated me to build a show quality but traditional 64. I want to make a statement with the 64 like I’m making with the 66. I plan to have chrome undies, chromed out motor, and painted/powder coated frame... but it will still LAY. A lot of guys use a painted frame as an excuse for not laying their cars. I want to show people that ain’t no frame too pretty to sit on the ground. Shout out to dekay24 on here. He is building a Cadillac and he went out of his way to lay a painted, patterned out and pinstriped frame on the ground. That to me is lowriding.
got it laying on the ground now.:D 3/4" off the rockers. once the stainless rockers are on, it should be more like 1/2". i had to put my zeniths on the rear to even get the floor on, the china offset wasnt letting it go down. my car the body has already been tubbed on the outside, but...www.layitlow.com
I will most likely eventually sell the 66 to get a 59, 60 impala hardtop or a 57 bel air. I want my next car to always be better than my last. The car has sentimental value but I’m not married to it.
