Hydraulic Lowrider Cars Defy Gravity


00:05
COMM: With just a flick of a switch, £3000 of metal bounces up and down 8ft in the air.
25 year old Alex Tuoson creates tees custom low rider cars that defy gravity at his father’s
shop Hoppos Custom Suspension Works. 00:24
ALEX: we specialise in after market suspension particularly Hydraulic air suspension. 00:30
COMM: The low rider community emerged in the US in the 1950s. 00:35
ALEX: we are actually a small, tiny group of family, everyone knows everyone whether
your from Canada, Alaska I mean there are guys that are low riding everywhere but overall
I mean it does look like a bigger scene than it really is. The reason they got the name
low rider is because they would actually be driving so low, scrapping up their body and
then from there eventually grew into the culture that we are in now. After market hydraulic
pumps make the cars go up and down with a flick of a switch so you know it evolved big
time. 01:05
COMM: Alex removes the 12 springs from the car and replaces them with hydraulic cylinders,
the hydraulic system which operated and controlled with a remote or dial under the dash board,
building one of these cars costs customers anywhere between 2000 to a few $100,000 and
can take years to complete. 01:27
ALEX: I personally know some guys that probably have close to 200, 300,000 to a car and it
always starts off with wheels, paint, polstery, undercarriage, hydraulic set up and then from
there you start going into detail with everything you just bought, so you buy a stock set of
rims and it just looks nice but let me do something great here I’ve even seen a couple
of guys who are currently building impalas with like Ferrari motors and stuff like that
so it does get crazy. 01:55
COMM: These heavily customized cars are clearly designed to stand out and Alex welcomes the
attention. 02:01
ALEX: being west coast you’d think they’d kind of be used to it because west coast is
like car culture, its central right here you know it never gets old for people when they
see it rolling down the streets I still get a thumbs up every once in a while, its pretty
cool you know you get that reaction especially because you put all that money into the car. 02:17
COMM: Alex has been in the car business all his life, helping his father around the shops
since he was a child. 02:23
ALEX: I’ve been doing this since i was in diapers honestly i grew up around it in the
shop, around the cars, eventually your grown to grab the tools, help with this and help
with that, my dad has been a big influence in my life as far as the car scene but full
time, full time I’ve been into it about 7/8 years. 02:43
COMM: And he plans to follow in his father’s footsteps and running the shop in the future. 02:48
ALEX: My dad owns the company of course he showed me the right steps doing in order to
get to the next level and not only building a car in the business aspect to so eventually
he’s going to hand down the business to me when you build one of these you build it for
yourself its fun driving a low rider man you cant there’s nothing really else i can describe
you know you got to get in one and see the reaction for yourself.

    Simple entertainment for simple minds.. some people prefer art, others prefer music, and some people like watching a car bounce up and down..

  24. 12LOOK4 2FAST May 29, 2017 at 4:25 am

    Chimayo new Mexico is where hydraulics started and invented.Espanola is not only the lowrider capital of the world but also central.Was also published in lowrider magazine and a car from here in chimayo nm is also in California museum. Just some facts the cars in this video are really nice tho.Its a culture here was adopted by gangsters but down here it's a life style.

    my dad just gave me a 1966 Ford Galaxie and I'm thinking about getting hydraulics. How much in average do they cost?

  31. Filip July 27, 2017 at 8:01 pm

    When I grow up I wish I have a lowrider with this kinda stuff…
    When I was a little kid I really loved these, then I forgot they even exist but now I'm in this kinda stuff again…
    Problem is how much would it cost and the workshop like these doesn't exist in my country.

    Some beautiful work there bro!! Awesome!!I am a white male 46 that's shits sweet. Even when I was 17 just starting to drive out here in NJ I always want to build one!! I did not read all comments but I can see the stereotype ignorance because most of the cars display that I've ever saw in my life with Spanish or Mexican drivers

  39. Vztez Creenrij October 2, 2017 at 3:00 am

    these are the kinds of cars you roll around bumping some bass-boosted music with the doors wide open with some sort of expensive paint job and rims, i like those cars.

  40. breezetix November 11, 2017 at 1:49 pm

    HIGH RIDERS. what would u do if Donald Trump made Low riders Illegal #fucktrump

  50. FastCarsNoRules220 February 23, 2018 at 4:56 am

    Lowriders can actually be pretty useful cars other than just bouncing around, you can change the ride height depending on the road. Like if you're just cruising through the streets, you can go super low, and if there's a speed bump or an uneven surface, you can raise it so that you don't scrape the underneath of your car.

  51. kenyatta mohammed March 5, 2018 at 6:10 pm

    how long does it take for them to install the hydraulics

  83. goofydog2 February 10, 2019 at 1:10 pm

    What size rear end do these cars require and how long go they hold up over the years and are the rear ends (differentials) typically set, So going down the road at 3.55 down the road, so tight that traveling down the road between meet's does the car top out a 50-55mph??? And finally how much $money does an average hydraulic car entail on a yearly basis. Thanks
