Lowriders... Lowriding ... both have been an integral part of the Mexican-American communities, especially in Houston, and L.A. The Lowrider culture has expanded internationally and have become more diverse over time. One common thread is the tightness of each group. They are like family rather than members.
The owners not only take pride in their cars but majority cruise models no later than the 60's. A lot of pride is taken in refurbishing each vehicle and the details can be on point.
Although, there are some misconceptions associated with Lowriding, each car club has their own rules to follow by and are serious about their reputation. Often times you will see the various local car clubs raising money for community events, toys for the community and being a positive role model for at risk kids.
On the weekend is when it gets hype. Just drive through the neighborhoods of Magnolia, Denver Harbor or NorthSide and you will see car clubs posted up on the busy streets showing off their cars. Sometimes even competing with other clubs for recognition.
Either way, LowRiding has been around for years. Personally, I enjoy the cholo, tattoo, LowRider style. That is why I had to make a stop on Irvington Blvd. and enjoy the scene. Shout out to #IndividualsCarClub # SoloRiders #CarnalesStyleCarClub for letting me take pictures...JenJenMarie
