Post up a list that will help people out, if it be that they either didn't know it was available or it wasn't a good kit to turn into a Lowrider.
Post your list, anything from a stock 67 Impala SS that turns out great for a lowrider with your choice of parts, or a pre decided kit like a 70 Monte Carlo. Post the model, who makes it, if it's available and if its any good. I just thought this would be a great source for people to refer to when looking for a new project!

its kinda hard to say what is bad too it all depends on the indiviuals skill level as to whether they can make a kit work or not.

Poppa, not talking about you but......
alot of people complain about how AMT and Lindberg have the frames molded to the floorpan. but that is no big deal at all. i mean yeah its nice to have a seprate frame but not neccesary. heres one off a 61 impala i did 3 nites ago. all i did was sit down and spend 20 minutes on the damn thing and.......



i know one thing i dont like about alot of the AMT kits is the sunken in areas in the trunk lids.

the bad thing about the separate frames is the tendency to warp or twist since they're so skinny. I had a R/M 63 Impala with that.

That's what happened to mine aswell, it was bent so that it doesn't clip onto the enginebay as good as it clips onto near the rear suspension.
