Back To Back

Lowriders are an expression of the cultural, social, and religious identities of those who customize and display them. They prominently feature the hydropump system, originally used on aircraft technology, which allows owners to adjust the suspension by hitting switches to produce an extreme body movement we know today as “hopping.” Externally, they’re adorned with colorful pinstripes, flakes, candy paint, the faces of rappers like Tupac Shakur and Nate Dogg, and religious idols. Internally, upholstery, ornaments, and fixtures reflect the makers' fantasies.
