From what I have seen in the south, ya know georgia, florida, etc, and in the west side, cali. This is only what i see , am i correct? I see more blacks hittin switches on the west side than the south side. All the blacks in the south drive box chevys with 22's. I only see whites and chicanos mainly at the switch hittin seen. of course whites and chicanos in west too, but watch a cali swangin video, who are the main people puttin it down? why is this so? I'm not bar far turning this into a race thing, I'm from ny, we got all colors, anyone know why this is, . because of rap seen maybe?

You have to understand the demographics of lowriding and where it began and it's migration eastward and outward.

Lowriding in the traditional sense hasn't moved en masse to the North East yet. Doubtful it ever will, but we will ride anyway...

Look at NYC for instance...urban settings and hip-hop predominately influence the style of dress and cars young people choose.

What I'm saying is, if you are let's say "white" growing up in NYC you are more likely to be influenced by what I wrote above. Whereas out in Cali or Arizona you are more likely to be influenced by Chicano culture.

Take a look at car club plaques from here versus the west coast.

Most CC plaques over here are done in a more hip-hop/ graffitti style. Out west it's more traditional.

Hope this helps...

I'm originally from Long Island, NY, but live upstate past the capitol, Albany,NY. I'm glad to know some of my black homies in tha south know about hittin a switch, but the big wheel trend did take over, as long as we all unite and enjoy our sport of customizing rides, I just hate seeing other races hatin on each other constantly! I was even thinking of buying some 20's one day just for my family/work car.. but my hydros and 14's will never leave my caprice, love it ,but i am switch happy, and catch bad attention from the cops when my kids are in the car, i don't need that shit! Fuckin Pigs...... I clown a lot when i'm rollin solo or with my boys, big time, cuz i don't care then, my kids are not in the ride, its safer.. cps sucks and they need to mind there own business on how i choose to raise my kids,,, thats it, i'm done, peace,,, keep postin if ya'll got shit to say....

Isn't the Cali Swanging videos put out by Young Hogg and Young Hogg is Black. If i was making my own videos, you can bet I'd be showcasing my peeps as well. I'll tell you something from a Cali perspective, over here, yeah there are blacks that hit them switches but us Xicanos are the overwhelming majority when it comes to doing a little bit of clowning. I guess it's just the media's biases.

Very good and true observation from Royal Image Prez NY. I can't understand it either. I mean, I have no problem with the big wheel look if they can be put on without lifting the body or cutting the fenders. That's straight up nonesense there.

I moved out almost 5 years ago. The low low scene is by no means the way it is in Cali. Everything is very different. No Crenshaw, El Dorado park, no curb servin', crowds are different, It's hard to find parts, or get things serviced. The list goes on.

Surwest... Just to be clear, are you in Florida now or did you move back to Tejas? If you are still in Florida What part of Florida are you at?

I'm black and I would put 13's and hydros before 24s and lifts any day on a 2-door rwd American classic, and I stay in the South. Lotta kats down here go along with trends when west coast was running musik with Dre and Snoop all you seen was kats with 13's and dros, but now you got T.I. and Jeezy talking nothing but 24s they left lowriders alone. My homies keep telling me to sell my 13s and get 24s and a V8, but I live in the South and the only people who ride with big rims and 4x4 kits are rednecks with their trucks or monster trucks. I think its tacky to do a car like that plus I don't jump on trends so I'll be an old man with a kane still hitting switches.
