People have been customizing their cars for nearly as long as the automobile has been part of our lives. By the late 1920s, America car lovers began modifying by removing running boards and either removing fenders, or replacing them with bicycle fenders. You can still see this type of modification at hot rod shows. Just look for the early 1930s-era cars and you’ll see these same mods in practice today.
Around the time, the hot rod culture started taking off. Soon gearheads started getting more creative with their custom bodywork, such as altering suspension, lowering the roof, and “shaving” the door handles. By the 1950s, shadetree mechanics were souping up their engines. Some went as far as swapping out original engines for other, more powerful ones. This is about the time custom paint jobs became popular, too. Candy-apple red, orange flames, and brilliant turquoise all turned heads at Friday night cruises all over the country.
As the car industry evolved, so did customizations. After big fenders and tailfins went out of style in the 1960s, the muscle car movement began. Over time, many different car subcultures popped up, such as low riders, rat rods, and more.
We specialize in a modern vehicle customization known as donk cars. This is a modification to a car that generally includes large rims, lift kits, and striking paint jobs. If you’re looking to put on 22-inch rims on your car, you’ll most likely have to order a special kit so that they fit properly and allow you to safely operate your vehicle. That’s where we come in. At Liftabrand, we specialize in donk lift kit technology. All of our kits are carefully engineered and manufactured at our shop in Minnesota. Whether you have a 1976 Chevy Caprice or a 2014 Chrysler 300, we have the know-how, inventory, and experience to find the perfect kit for your car.
If you’re looking to create a unique ride that’s an expression of who you are, call us today. We look forward to helping you through the process.
