Something Frosty mentioned earlier resonates. "Being in a lowrider club's like being in a gang - there's the same fraternity, and I guess that's why it attracts so many people that used to be on the street. That, and building cars we saw when we were growing up. But there's respect and satisfaction - you take something beat up and create something you can be proud of. It feels good, gives you confidence. Then you realise that there's other s**t you can do. In that way, lowriders save lives."
