FIRST I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF LOWRDIER AND CAR CUSTOMIZING IN GENERAL. MY MAJOR QUESTIONS IS "WHY" DON'T ANY LOWRIDER CAR CLUBS LIKE NOT TO LET ANY EURO'S IN THEIR CLUBS. THEY SAY IN THIER REQUIREMENTS ONLY 2 OR 4 DOOR TRADITIONALS. AND THEY TURN AROUND AND LET BIG RIMS TRUCK AND CARS IN THE CLUB. THAT TO ME IS SIMPLY STUPID ( MY OPINION ) OUR TYPE OF LOWRIDER EUROS ARE INDEED VERY DIFFERENT THAN ANY OUR EUROS OUT THERE. WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE FRESH PAINT, SMOOTH INTERIORS, SYSTEMS AND SUSPENSIONS. WE HAVE NO REAL WAY OF EXPRESSING OURSELFS. LIKE I SAID WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER IMPORTS. AS A MATTER OF FACT WE ARE LOWRIDER EURO THE OTHERS ARE IMPORTS. SO WHY DON'T CLUB LET US IN. LOOK AT ELITE'S "THE PASSION" THATS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF OUR EUROS. WE ARE NOT IN A LRM SHOW DOING FAST AND FURIOUS SH!TS, WE COME TO COMPETE IN OUR LIFESTYLE. SO PLEASE SOMEONE ANSWER ME WHY. THANKS WHEN IM DONE WITH MY EURO I WILL POST PICS.

I have already started a topic of this a while ago, you are not going to like the responses that people are going to give you....just a heads up. I have a full custom '95 Ford Escort and she doesn't get any respect, I am always being told to do a traditional, but I say screw it do what you like, I haven't seen any other Escort's like mine and there are plenty duplicated traditionals. :biggrin:

To Lowriders, Imports, or Euro's still have that cheap import connotation. A Nissan Sentra?? Escort?? These cars are made as throw away cars and are basicaly cheap transportation. I knwo Impalas were family cars of the day, but they have HISTORY and TRADITION.
Even the import scene, does not accept Escorts, or Neon's, American made "Imports" because they do not fot their idea of an Import.

So g-bodies are not cheap and expendable? If there worth so much why do I see them getting trashed on Truucha videos? No offense to g-body owners but everyone is so easy to take the Escort are throw away cars approach on this subject.

And of course go ahead and post a picture of the Sunturd. :biggrin:

Every club sets its own rules. Some are traditional only. Some are certain years only. Some are certain models only, like Impalas. Some allow Euros and imports. Some allow trucks. Some allow big rims. Each club is different, so find the one that suits your taste, or start your own. ;)

yeah..this topic may be shit on..but it's an interesting question..when I competed with my euro.....(Euro??? and it's American made) it was cool cuz there was NO fast and the furious crap out there.....I had it all..candy paint..molded kit, chrome and gold wires, interior, chrome and gold wires, chrome and gold hydro set up, phantom and rag top, mural...it was fun back then....(early and mid 90's) but it's changed and seems not as accepted lately......

G-bodies may be cheap now that they're mostly beat-up, high-mileage, 20-year-old cars, but they were still somewhat of a mid-line luxury car in their day. An Escort would be more likely compared to a Cavalier. You don't see too many Cavalier low-lows either! ;)

The whole G-body "dime a dozen" argument has been done too. 20, 30, 40 years ago Impalas were a dime a dozen too. GM sold millions of them, but they're highly desirable now, and I'm sure the G-body will continue to be a collector car as well. Shit, I bought a Fleetwood to be "different," but now they're becoming a dime a dozen it seems. You can pick one up for under 2 g's these days. Kind of makes me want to sell it, but I know 20 years from now it will be more respected. ;)

Nothing against your wife's Escort because I've seen it and it's nice. Like I said, every club sets its own rules.

I can agree with that. I think its just not the popular thing to do in Lowriding right now. In the 90's it was hot and I think because of the deviation of the actual lowrider style killed alot of it off. If anyone followed Lowrider Euro magazine you can see exactly what I mean. Now if its not a popular model of car people will look down on it. Kinda sad but true.

Anyway, I have nothing against g-bodies at all in fact there some really nice ones out there. I was just using that as an example.
