Paying the cost to be the "boss," Peter Jimenez of Maywood, California, plunked down several thousand dollars over a three-year period to place his '86 Olds Cutlass, "Patron," among the sharper rides flying the Majestics C.C. plaque. Peter pays the bills by being a truck driver and he really got this project into gear to deliver the goods in due time.
An active member of the Los Angeles chapter of Majestics, Peter thanks "Big Rich" for starting him in lowriding. He also sends special thanks to his wife, his brother and his fellow Majestics members for their help in making this muraled masterpiece one of the club rides that we just couldn't overlook.
So what's on the horizon for the big guy? Peter tells us that he plans to put together a '64 Chevy Impala for his next project. As a member of one of lowriding's premier car clubs, and given the quality of this custom Cutlass, we're counting on that six-four to be something special.
