That guy must be a student of the PK86-style of photography: cutting off the front or back corner in every picture.

Put different wheels on it and it would be better looking than a chop top.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but he's technically raised that car. He "lowered" the centerline of the wheels (which raises the vehicle) so that he could put rinky-dink wheels on it without dragging the belly.

Considering the amount of critical things (like coolant lines) running from the front to the back in these cars, I can't imagine intentionally getting the belly closer to a speedbump.

Almost, but not quite as bad as vertical video.

I've never understood why anyone would modify a car in any way which lowers performance. Ridiculously high trucks, stancing, lowered with skinny wheels. But I can respect the workmanship and dedication to what they are trying to do I suppose.
I raised the rear of my 71 Skylark at age 16 because I thought it would help with 1/4 mile times. Had no idea what I was doing and actually made the car really dangerous for cornering.

Because they are Mexican. Let's just call it what it is.....a low-riding Mexican. Trust me, back in the day, that was the thing to do in the Latino community. You can even see the padded dash that is 3" thick.

This car rings a bell, I swear I saw it on here many years ago. I think it made a magazine cover or spotlight back in the day!

I saw that article. 21 years later and the car has maintained it's turd look. No one has taken the incentive to change it back to a car of value....just a street trash vehicle.

Not my cup of tea, but the craftsmanship is great. The interior reminds me of a plush orange coffin.
