Capricorrniooo, I see you driving up and down the streets with your amor this spring, but first you need the car that’s going to give you some street cred. These cars might not look like your typical sleek and long carros cruising down Whittier Boulevard in East LA, but you’re in for a surprise (just like your weekly horoscope.) Vamonos – a vroom, vroom!
1. Chevrolet Impala
The classic model often gets upgraded to be a lowrider, but I’m seeing the 2016 version looking very 100 (is that what you kids say now?) 10 years from now. Much like your love life, you might not see the possibility of things getting better, but it’s coming your way!
2. Lincoln MKT
All this stately car needs is a little pump up (like your enthusiasm level) to bounce, bounce, bounce up to the club.
3. Mustang Convertible
Out with the old, in with the new. Let’s do some spring cleaning and take off the factory-placed tires for some chrome wheels that are as fresh as the grass popping up on your yard. Make sure you clean out your own personal closet too while you’re at it. Aries and Libras don’t mix, but this convertible totally goes with the lowrider style!
4. Mazda MX-5 Miata RF
Tiny but mighty! This little car packs a big punch, just like the little Chihuahuas roaming the streets in East Los Angeles. Don’t underestimate it, it would make one glossy lowrider with a little bit of elbow grease.
5. Cadillac CT6
I want to say you live your best life this year, and if part of that is to build your own lowrider, then a Cadillac CT6 is the way to go. The grill is stately – and I know, have you seen my wardrobe?!
6. Subaru WRX
You are the teacher and motivator in your family Virgo, so portray that when it comes to your wheels! Your analytic side is ready to see how the engine can be upgraded, the paint can glisten in the Cali sun and how you are going to budget it out to transform this sedan into a lean lowrider. Todo es possible!
7. Fiat 500
Dare to knock on other doors! This car might seem like a QUE?! type of vehicle to convert into a lowrider, but bigger things have happened in the world. Dream it, believe, it and it can be done!
Amor y paz a todos.
Family means everything in the streets of LA. Watch ‘Lowriders’ with Demián Bichir and Eva Longoria in theaters on May 12.
