Welcome to lay it low! I would like to see your models. I also would like to say that many of the members here have been in the magazines over and over through the years, but it was not always in LRB. There is Model Cars and Scale Auto that have also shown lots of lows from guys here.
I wish LRB was on the shelf as well as Scale Lowrider like it used to be. The fact is most people are very close minded and don't care for lowriders as much as back in the 1990s. It's sad, but true. It's like people considered lowrider models a fad just like NASCAR models.....nobody wants a nascar kit....can't give them away.
Don't get me wrong, i am here cuz i love lowriders...i am speaking of the rest of the hobby "outside this forum and some others".......we are SMALL compared.....
I went to Toledo NNL this year and over 750 models were entered, guess how many lowriders? I would say less than 10 were lows.
Tuners are rapidly becoming a "fad to disappear" as well. I am all over the internet and what i see MOST of is rod and kustom.... what i see next is muscle cars and factory stock.....then i see the oddball, low, nascar, dirt tracker etc...

You are right, people need to step up the game a little. Everyone is so confined to this message board in particular that the REST of the hobby does not SEE the lows!
It's the people that only stick to one spot that are making it less obvious LOWRIDERS are being built! Go to scale auto , model cars and many of the smaller message boards and look around for lows......not near as many as LIL has. If people would break away from the comfort zone, maybe the lowrider hobby will be recognized like it was 15 years ago still.

I think someone should start a forum just for LOWRIDER MODELS only! Do you guys have any idea how successful it would be?

Another thing that kills it for low builders is the fact that there is so much shit talking and drama. People bashing each other all the time for stupid things and posting people's phone numbers up in public is childish.

The only way this end of the hobby is going to get the respect it deserves is for people to grow up and show the rest of the hobby that lowriders are built by mature respectable people.

You already know that all people think of when they see a lowrider is "drugs and gangs" ....... that is messed up man!

It is each and everyone person's responsibility to stand up and show that lowriding is a way of life ........ not a dead end!
