Admittedly, when it comes to urban car culture, our interest is primarily limited to bombas and classic lowriders. But the same Southern culture that gave us syrup and crunk has blessed us with hi-risers, essentially the inverse of lowriders. By and large, we scoff at anything with wheels larger than 18", and well, frankly, Hi-Risers are no exception. File 'em alongside stupid-pricey billet rods and bosozoku-style negative-camber-happy sport compacts as automotive trends that fly over our head all Francis Gary Powers-style.

Well, when it comes to the car culture, you must to have an open mind. Cars are worldly possessions that people love and use to express their individuality. I myself like to hop in my 1984 Cutlass Supreme w/t-tops and cruise the streets while "sitting on them thangs" (26" rims). But I also get in the mood to drive my 2006 Dodge Charger w/the HEMI down the long winding highway! My cars are reflections of me, they are who I am, and thats what makes the car cultures so great. If you agree, then that's great, but if you don't, you're probably driving your mother's station wagon! HOORAH! Support our troops!
