I can’t express how much I love when people take rusty cars with crazy patina body drop them and drag frame. Even better when they leave the body as is it and completely update the entire drivetrain and suspension. I think it’s becoming so popular because you simply cannot replicate the look. Hopefully it doesn’t become too mainstream but I really do enjoy seeing it. I came across this picture of a really dope example of what I’m talking about. Many people don’t understand how much work goes into a proper body drop. It’s pretty intense. And after all that work, leaving the patina gives the truck that much more character. Oh, and having baller wheels always help. So dope!
What a great color combo as well.
I am really acquiring a small addicting for these classic 50’s era American cars. Especially with the right about patina and flair with a touch of air ride. There is just something that is just so badass about rolling down the road in something like this. Something with so much character. Props to the owner for driving it as much as he does. Like it should be.
As someone who is striving to build my own company from scratch, I really can appreciate a company with great product’s and have a automotive background. Lowly Gentlemen came from the guys at Stanceworks, so we knew they would be producing quality goods. I’ve always believed that having a product in itself isn’t enough to build a brand that is going to last. You need a image, you need creativity to show your products in ways in ways that will draw people in. Below is a collaboration with T2 Detectives (since they will be carrying LG products) to draw in an audience. It’s an absolutely perfectly body-dropped and patina’d VW Bus. Complete with their fixed gear bike’s up top. I would LOVE to do something like this someday. Time will tell. The hard work continues…
Props to Lowly Gentlemen.
A lot of my content is stuff I find from around the internet, but I think I should post up more of what I find on my own with local events. Spotted this static, rhd Beetle at Formula D a couple weeks back and completely fell in love. I have seen a couple low Beetle’s over the years but nothing this dope. I got to see it rolling in this low and it’s amazing how drivable the car is at this height. Complete with great patena and all. Such an amazing sight.
