I grew up in Northern California, in an area where Latino and Chicano culture was big and their car scene was all about lowriders and bombs. I grew up as a drag racer and muscle car guy but always had a love for lowriders. I wasn’t a big fan of the bombs, but a 1964 Impala with hydraulics, 100 spoke Daytons, and panel paint with lace and gold leaf really turned my crank. I spent many hours reading Lowrider Magazine, and looking at lowriders whenever I’d see them at a show. Whether or not you were a lowrider fan directly, there was no doubt that the lowrider scene had a big impact on the hot rodding world. Lowriders were risk takers, pioneers in paint, and weren’t afraid to cut stuff up.
So when I saw that Jon from Currie Garage got to play with the MK Garage 1964 Impala, I was jealous to say the least. This car is clean, and cool, and looks like an absolute riot to play with and hop. I have always said I would someday build my own lowrider, and this video just reinforced the fact I really need to do that at some point.
