I know the first exposure that I got to low riding was old school domestics (grew up in San Ysidro, CA). I still have much love for these cars, but being asian, I also starting going towards the Japanese big body "low riders".

What is your opinion on this scene? In all sense of the word the car itself is a low rider, however, it's culture is much different from the traditional scene.

Any thoughts? What are your opinions on this particular trend?

VIP style is what they call it. (pronounced "bip") Im sure most people on lil wont care for it, but I love it. very much like lowriders. strecthing tires that are too small onto big rims the same way 5.20's go on 13-7's. they sit way low, and there clean as hell.

yup, VIP Style. I wanted to avoid that word, cause most people associate VIP cars with DUB show type cars.

Thanks for the reply...keep em coming.

don't buy a car because of your race, buy it because you like it. Who cares what other people think. The VIP style looks much more practical than a lowrider, but to each his own.

I hear all the comments.

I did not gravitate due to race. I just never got into the old school low rider scene cause I was young then. As I got older, my friends changed and I wasn't around the old school stuff as much.

I respect all forms car styles. I really think the passion and the culture of low riders is well beyond that of the "VIP" scene of Japan. The culture in Japan supposedly dates to the Japanese mafia, Yakuza.

At this point, i'm really feelin the domestics. One of these days I'm gonna build a domestic. I'm in progress of building a big body Lexus right now. So yeah...keep the comments coming. I like the opinions.

Thank you
Chris
