There are a few website’s I can actually can my favorite. Bring A Trailer is definitely, 100% one of my favorites. I have to admit, scouring the internet for rare, qwerky, and valuable cars is a fun past time for me, so I was naturally drawn to this site. The difference between BAT and other random sites that showcase cars for sale is the complete randomness of its content. And I mean that in the best way possible. It can show a cool 60’s Dodge Dart one day, a Lotus Elan the next, and a Volkswagen Bus a week later. See what I mean? And of course, all of the cars shown are in beautiful condition, and by beautiful, it could mean unrestored with a lovely patena or a nut and bolt restoration. It’s just cool. And there’s no denying. Props to the owners for having some amazing taste.
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.
It’s true what they say. A picture is worth a thousand words, but a good picture is sure worth a whole lot more then that. This Bus is just about as perfect as it gets. Body drop, Porsche wheels, great patina, and rolling static like it should. The amount of neck breaking this Bus must do is incredible. In love, would be an understatement.
It hasn’t really snowed here much in NY since the huge storm in the fall. I kind of miss the snow drifting in the parking lots. Anyways, plenty of places around the world have gotten snow, and tuners have taken plenty of pictures of their rides in it. As many of you know, I absolutely love body drop VW Bus’, so the picture of this patena’d Bus in the snow is right up my alley. Although the salt can destroy a car over time, snow picture can be really cool.
Seriously, the first thing that came out of my mouth was, damn this is cool! So the title and name is fitting to the T. I have such a soft spot for these Bus’ and always catch myself searching the air-cooled classified’s every now and then. I appreciate company’s that take branding to another level. It’s smart is so many ways. These things must get a hell of a lot of attention rolling together, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they got customers just from seeing the bus’ roll around town. Props.
I have recently become obsessed with body drop on cars and trucks. It’s such a cool concept and it’s definitely very different from what we see in the “tuner” scene. A body drop is basically cutting the body away from the floor and raising the actual floor, welding it back in so the car looks ultra slammed. All of this work keeps the junk that would usually scrap along the floor in a normally dropped car, from doing so. It also keep your suspension components “useable”. Below are two polar opposites, but both with a body drop. The Chevy is actually from Japan. I think it’s such a cool look. The Bus is by far one of my favorite cars to see with a body drop. It almost makes it look like it’s hovering. I want one!
As you can see, I have soft spots for many cars. One of them is this Mid 70’s VW Bus. Don’t get me wrong I love to see the restored original look lowered on a nice set of period correct Porsche wheels, but this Bus is really in a league of its own. Everything has completely been shaven, and I mean everything! If it hasn’t been shaven it’s been molded in and painted. Non of the chrome remains and a set a modern looking wheels have been added. It kind of gives it a motorsports look. Not something too in common when you think about a VW Bus. The dual exhaust in the back hints at a possible heart transplant. Hmmm!
I dig it!
