Long ago, when we first moved to Los Angeles from Chicago, we immediately fell head over heels in love with the East LA low rider culture and lifestyle. We already had a weakness for big American vintage cars and these guys spent mucho time and money bringing rusty wrecks back to life and far beyond. The custom paint jobs sparkled like diamonds and they could make the cars hop up and down at will. On weekends cholos paraded the cars on boulevards and lowrider car shows had hopping contests. We had never seen anything like it. The movie Lowrider opens this weekend starring Gabriel Chavarria, above, and – surprise-Eva Longoria plays his mother! And of course, CARS! CARS! CARS!
