Adolph Garcia of San Bernardino, California, got into lowriding at an early age. Back in the day, his dad used to take him to lowrider shows and expose him to the scene. Once Adolph was old enough, his dad gave him his first lowrider car. After owning a '91 Chevy Caprice and a 2000 Lincoln Town Car, Adolph graduated to his latest project, a '96 Cadillac Brougham.
Adolph's low-low was once a four-door, but that was until it was shipped to "Topo" of Bowtie Connection in Artesia, California. Topo took the original design of the car and threw it out the window. He put a cutting blade in his Sawsall and started cutting away. The result was a two-door Brougham with a sunroof, castle grille, sectioned hood and shortened roof. While the car was being worked on, Adolph sent everything out to Sergio of Metal Finishers in East Los Angeles, California, who chrome plated the undercarriage to a mirror finish.
When GM designed and built its first big-body Cadillac many in the custom car community felt that they should've offered a two-door version. If GM had followed the advice of the lowriding community, maybe Caddy sales would've shot through the roof. Since they didn't, it's up to customizers like Topo to remedy the situation. We'll have to see how many more of these conversions Topo can crank out. Once people see Adolph's "Still Ballin'," Topo may have Brougham owners lining up at his door to get their doors taken off.
