DRIFTING ON A MEMORY
Dooley’s ’57 Chevy Bel Air
The passing of a loved one is a hard pill to swallow. The memories become greater, the pain never seems to end, and we’d do just about anything to have them by our side. So when one gentleman needed a way to immortalize his loved ones he decided to commemorate them by building a lowrider to be sure that they’d always be with him.
When it came time for Dooley to choose a platform, he chose one that his dad had always loved—and once owned. It was a ’57 Bel Air, and even better was that he didn’t have to look too far to get one, as his cousin had one in good condition.
It’s a build that’s as striking as it is heartfelt, and in the end Dooley combined his passion for lowriding with the memories of his loved ones. From the detailed trunk mural to the highly stylized engine, this isn’t just a lowrider but a time capsule that captures one man’s dedication to keeping the memories of his loved ones in a format that we can all appreciate.
