    go out to all corners of the land, far and wide, take white wall tires, cragars, and early issues of LRM to all the heathens in land of donk.
    speak to the men with necks of red and tell them mussles are best served with butter and kept away from cars.
    tell those with trucks that "mini" is not something to claim with pride.

    spread the news to the world, mother earth loves a good scratch on the back, preferably done with back bumper of a lowrider down her spine also know as Whittler bvld.

    may your clear coat never peel.

    Here's a few I happened to have. I'll look through some of my older Lowriders and take some more Malibu pictures later on.







    If you're looking for some paint inspiration, I've got alot of pictures of cars with dope paint. Sorry bro, none of these are Malibus. I apologize that these aren't pictures from the 70s and early 80s, so please excuse the modern wires and so on. However, the bright kandies and patterns of the Lifestyle cars are a treat for the eyes. Enjoy...........E

    Shit, was looking staring at those pics some more, that orange 63 is sick!!! Mine isn't the car for it, but one day I'll have something with a full HOK candy job Im good friends with a pretty talented painter who's trying to make a name for himself and we work out barters for paint/mechanical work....so that's how my Malibu's getting painted. Anywho, I was trying to get him to candy the whole car, but we kinda figured it'd be better off if I waited until I got something a little nicer So we're doing the poorman's low-low paint job, a modern car color with some flake...prob some 70's panels and lace thrown in for good measure :wink: If you know of any other low-budget, high impact effects used in the 70's let me know holmes!!! 8) Oh yeah, what do you call those taped out lines in the panels of this Imp?? We've been calling them mazes and shoots and ladders :lol: , I've seen them on quite a few cars from that era....had me thinkin' :idea:

    The Impala has alot of different stuff on it. We always called the crazy race track looking ones endless line. There are also alot of fades and patterns. That is a dope paint job!

    The style in the second picture we used to call patterns, ladders or blocks depending on how the edges looked on the inside and outside.

    There are some old books (I guess they were more like a magazine) that Hot Rod put out in the late 70s and early 80s called Custom Painting. There were probably at least half a dozen in the series. They were pretty thick, about as thick as a new copy of Lowrider. They had tons of bodywork articles, painting ideas, techniques and how-tos with very little advertising. You might check around on Ebay to see if you can find any. They will help you out alot with ideas for old school paint. E

    I'm lucky enough to have 4 of them. A few of them I actually bought off the newstand when they were new! I've also got one called Street Machines. It has alot of outdated tips for hopping up musclecars and stuff, but there are enough paint tips and pictures to make it worth having.

    I'll post pictures of the covers of the ones I have so you know what to look for. I also took some pictures of a few of the pages in the Street Machines book. Lots of neat kars in there. It really is too bad that the pictures are in black and white. E
