In my post yesterday, https://katelontjeffereys.wordpress.com/2018/05/04/48th-annual-chicano-park-festival/ , I talked about all the beautiful low-rider and other refurbished cars shown at the celebration.
I noticed that most of the cars were Chevrolet’s. I had had a beautiful red and white 1956 Ford Convertible, when I was sixteen, so had hoped to see one there. I finally asked a Latino Man if there were any Ford cars there that day. His son mentioned that there were a few but that Mexicans had always like Chevrolet – that had been their car. (his words). So I didn’t see a 56 Ford but did see many wonderful cars.
As I mentioned yesterday, next to each car was usually chairs filled with family and friends, enjoying the car and supporting the owner.
Here are photos of 10 of the cars. You can click on a photo to enlarge it. Each car was so beautifully detailed, from the tires and rims to the upholstery and more.
Hope you enjoyed the cars! Thank you for visiting my blog! If you like this post, please share a comment, a “like”, and sign up to follow and join in the adventures!
