If you want to build a lowrider but don’t want the discomfort that comes with cruising an older car, you can do what many people are doing and fix up a newer ride. Late model Cadillacs seem to be the car of choice for a new generation of American car builders who have grown accustomed to air conditioning, power windows and all of the options and luxuries of a newer car, but still want a stylish and powerful American cruiser.
We’ve seen several of these hooked-up four-door luxury cruisers on the pages of Lowrider Magazine. The first big-body Brougham to grace the cover of Lowrider was David Olivares’ ’95, “The Big Payback,” which was featured in the February 2000 issue. Another fixed-up Caddy of recent vintage was Junior “Kebo” Keeble’s “Supreme Hustle,” also a ’95 Brougham, which made the centerfold in April 2001. The most recent hard-hittin’ big-body Cadillac to be featured in Lowrider (November 2001) was Brent Reese’s “Mr. Unique” ’93 Fleetwood Brougham.
Thanks to such high-profile lowriders as these, it was only a matter of time before we began to see a surge in popularity of new generation Cadillacs within the lowrider community. As a matter of fact, we have learned of the making of a two-door Brougham. We can’t wait to see that car when it’s done, but for now, let us show you a few bolt-on accessories that you can add to your Cadillac.
