Why is a 2 door car looked at as a more Traditional lowrider than a 4 door?

If they both fit the profile of your typical lowrider why is the 2 dr more accepted than the 4 dr?



This is a question that has pondured my mind for a while now, and just looking for some insight from fellow lowriders.

its just an accepted fact that most 4 door cars do not appreciate in value the way a 2 door does so they are less desirable. I've seen some really nice 4 doors that have had a ton of custom touches but to the general public they are still not as valuable as the same car in a 2 door model

but then why is a wagon looked at as a traditional lowrider and it si still your family car.

I am just trying to understand why the 4dr is the only style that seams to be singled out.

if the car came with a 2 door or 4 door option then you want the 2 door... if big body cadis came stock as 2 doors nobody would be fixing up the 4 doors... :cool:

4 drs are looked upon as parts cars... unless theyre 1954 and older; the bombs just look better in 4 dr versions... although a 2 dr wont be forgotten either..

it just does not make that much sense to me that you can have all the right stuff in your lowrider but your car will not be looked apon as a traditional because it has 4 doors. But if you have a wagon thats ok. Or if you have this or that its ok, but if it's a 4 door your car aint worthy.

How is that fair?

Yeah, to many people be trying to go against the grain. Just roll with it. If you don't like it, get into something else like rat rods or something. Nobody is gonna come along and cry about why four doors don't get respect and think the game is gonna change just for them. This shit has been going on for decades. If it's a two door version, it gets built instead of the four door. Plain and Simple. ;)
