Dusk makes color and chrome render wonderfully on the grey scale.  This plymouth’s owner was glad to pose with his 1947 Oldie as he made a flaming tail pipe exit.  My goal is to catch that on camera next time. The pride these cars brings to their owners speaks to the hard work they put into a machine that becomes an extension of themselves and sometimes even capturing the identity of complete familias. Given the craftsmanship and design involved in building a lowrider its understandable how some folks may see cars as extensions of their bodies.
