We have all dreamt of one day owning a lowrider. Hopefully you too will one day have the unenviable task of deciding which car you will fix up. For some, it is easy; the timeless Impala will always be the car of choice. For others, it is more of a luxury thing and they opt to build the ultimate status symbol: a Cadillac. When Luis Ramirez decided to make his dream a reality, he decided to go against the grain and turn a Lincoln into his lowrider masterpiece.
With several years of lowriding under his belt, and the usual Highclass Car Club “all hands on deck” mentality, this dream was in full swing. As soon as Low-Life in Santa Fe completed the custom reinforced and molded suspension it was onto Speedy’s Metal Finishing to complete all the chrome and polishing. New Era would then apply the Candy Apple Red base and purple tape shades with Skippy of Curlys Pinstriping adding lengthy lines of gold flake throughout. Shinji-Hara of Japan was brought in to add his signature murals depicting the theme of this car. Riding Dirty in Torrance would put together the multicolored red suede and Manta Ray peanut butter leather interior with Carlos Santana in Bueno Park installing a custom touch-screen head unit powering multiple TV screens and Pioneer speakers. With the 13-inch, custom-engraved Zenith wire wheels and 155/80-13 radial whitewalls installed, this dream was finally ready to hit the lowrider car shows.
“Thanks to everyone who was involved with my latest build,” Luis says. “Especially my family and son Lil’ Jr. who always rides with me. Let’s live life and enjoy the ride.” l
