Ive been hearing the same thing but from LIL. The general opinion seems to be lowriding is declining but people are getting that idea because alot of shops seem to be closing down. But on the other hand alot of people seem to be building there cars themselves so that could explain the shops. Just what i've read...

;) To mean it seems to be making a come back.. Now part of the issue is that everyone want to build some kind of show car. Well that's not what rid'n is about.. All you need is a clean car, stock paint job and some wheels. Even if your cars a little dinged up, just keep it clean and com'on keep you windows clean. Just cause your car is not show car quality keep it clean and roll it with pride in your ride...
As for the shops it don't take no shop to lower your and put wheels on it. Also if your limited on funds and have to make a choice get the body work done, shit gett a maco paint job and roll on some nice hubs caps. I see cars with wheels worth more then the car. Get your car fixed and painted before you put some hi-dollar wheels on it. Guess what if you put $1000 wheel on junker, it's still a junker. Just my thoughts... ;)

It's probally the economy! Since the republicans have taken over, disposable income isn't like it used to be for a lot of riders....including myself :(

reason its on a decline is compliments of the LAPD and other law enforcement agencies that ticket us everytime we take our cars out and treat us like criminals and shit as we get older we cant take chances like losing your license or having your insurance go up or alot of tickets its all bull shit cuz if a hot rod is next to a lowrider guess who gets pulled over

yeah but isnt like the mid 80s to late later 90s. a lot has to do with not being able to roll your car and also other trends taking the younger generations. raised trucks, ricers and suvs contribute to less lowriders. some its a trend they get in and out of. they see a video and want a lowrider, then they fall out into something else.

The true riders will allways be around. Lowriding is a lifestyle a culture, it will never go away.

Why were all the laws put in place and why are lowrider type vehicles within the sights of the LAPD? Was it the crazy street action that took place.....people standing up cars on the street? Nose up battles blocking traffic?
