I personally think that bellflower was more of a period in time 58-64 were mild customs, customized more with paint. Grapevine being an excellent example, no chop, shaved, and the paint being the major mod. Were these cars lowriders? Yes, but lowrider became a style in itself by the 70s. Just like the Harry westergard period style customs of the 40s and early 50s, or even the ultra chopped, flamed, neon, pepto period in the mid 80s.

Pretenders Car Club - Bellflower - 1950's

I have been reminicing with my dad - he was in the Pretenders Car Club in the 50's (Bellflower) - pretty famous in those days. Lots of history, money for the children's hospital, promoted by Bill Balance KFWB radio station. All these locations you've mentioned are part of a deep Dutch history and of the fabric of Southern California. Very cool.
