MOONEYES 2015: THE LOWRIDERS

Check out the mind-blowing paint and trim on these mental Japanese lowriders!

FOR whatever reason, American lowrider culture really resonates with some in the Japanese car scene. And, as is typical, when the Japanese set out to build a car in a particular style, they do it right or they don’t do it at all! Check ’em out:

Mooneyes -658_5CT9812Hisashi Ushida’s famous ’54 Chev, dubbed Sphinx.

Mooneyes -658_5CT9853The Lady Kill Chev Monte Carlo owned by Kenji of the Primera club.

Mooneyes -658_5CT0558Tetsuo Ikegaya’s ’54 Chev Handyman wagon had us drooling.

Mooneyes -658_5CT0498Shun’s ’74 Chev Monte Carlo is another mind-blowing Primera car and is appropriately dubbed ‘Madness’.

Mooneyes -658_5CT0547The Cal Trend ’56 Chev delivery had very impressive paint, alternating between super-thick and super-fine metalflake.

Mooneyes -658_5CT9877This Mercury Cougar XR7, dubbed ‘Endless’, was a jewel on the Rulez CC stand.
