El Rey, 2011
1963 Chevrolet Impala
De Alba covered almost every surface of El Rey with a combination of custom candy paint, chrome plating, and metal etching. The geometric design of the paintwork accentuates the lines of the car’s body, and extends into the engine compartment, trunk, and undercarriage. El Rey has been called the “pinnacle of modern lowrider culture,” and it has garnered admiration from communities both in and outside of lowriding. In addition to being named Lowrider of the Year by Lowrider Magazine for three consecutive years (2011-2013), El Rey has won awards at both SEMA and the Grand National Roadster Show.
