Thomas Adams’ ’75 Chevy Caprice

The West Coast Move­ment was the un­of­fi­cial name given to the era of gold plat­ing, Dookie chains, and the rise of West Coast rap. From 2Pac, Snoop, to the West­side Con­nec­tion, this was a time when rap—and lowrid­ers—were on heavy ro­ta­tion, and those were just a part of what got Adam Thomas hooked on lowrid­ing.

While some would call this flash­back in time the golden era of lowrid­ing, for Adam it was a time of ex­plo­ration that of­fered him a mo­ment of clar­i­fi­ca­tion. Dur­ing an MLK Pa­rade he saw the folks from In­di­vid­u­als Car Club lined up dur­ing the pa­rade and it was then and there that he de­cided that he not only wanted to build a lowrider but also be a mem­ber of that very club.

Some­time later, Adam gained en­try into the club with his Buick Re­gal, but not too long af­ter he wanted to take things to the next level, so he built this ’75 Rag­house. It’s a build with an in­ter­est­ing story. Visit us on­line for the full de­tails.
