The article is about a customized 1961 Chevy Impala lowrider that was featured in the music video for 2Pac's To Live And Die In L.A. The car's current owner, Long Beach Lloyd, rebuilt the drivetrain with a new Blueprint 350 V8 engine and Turbo 350 automatic transmission.
The car now boasts a claimed 616 horsepower output. Lloyd also installed a full hydraulic system, 13-inch Dayton wire wheels, gold trim bits and badging, purple halo surrounds for the headlights, and purple lighting inside the cabin. These upgrades give the car an L.A. Lakers vibe while maintaining its unique history.
