  Hydraulics/Lowriders - by True Playaz

'84 Caddy Coupe DeVille             Caddy_Hops.mpg (400K)

I've always loved hydraulics and lowriding old cars and hotrods. My first lowrider was a 63 Impala. When I got the car I didn't know the anything about hydro's. I really beat the crap out of the car. I had no frame reinforcement so the car got damaged in a few places. It was too much to redo, so I sold it and bought a '84 Caddy Coupe DeVille. A stronger and cleaner car to beat upů

The car came originally from Florida; the body and frame were in excellent condition. I started on the frame and hydraulics. I didn't take the frame off because of how clean it was, but I reinforced it as much as possible from front to back. Then a four pump set up went in - the 2 back pumps are Hi/Low and the 2 front pumps are ShowTime competition with marzocchi plus pump heads. Pushing the 4 pumps competition are 16 batteries. Eight and ten inch rams are in the car.

After the hydraulics' were put in, the engine was pulled, rebuilt and detailed. The original exterior paint was stripped to the metal. Then GT AutoWorks based it with burgundy, silver and orange flakes covering them with Kandy brandy wine.

The interior and half the roof were customized with tan colour vinyl. Finally, I added fourteen by seven inch rims with all gold center from Luxor - 175-70-14.
