You didn’t make it out to the Bay Area last weekend for King of the Streets? No problem, the Lowrider Garage video series is bringing the event to you! Our return to Cow Palace was a huge success with a massive turnout featuring some of the very best lowriders and customs in the Bay Area and surrounding regions.
The San Francisco Lowrider Council and Lowrider teamed up to produce the already highly anticipated annual mega event, with hundreds of additional rides that rolled in like the fog and took over the indoor and outdoor areas of the historic building. The huge crowd enjoyed their favorite American lowrider pastime with a competitive hopping contest that lasted for hours, music, food, and vendor booths that reminded everyone of car shows of the past. Speaking of the past, it was a long overdue visit as Lowrider has been “out of town” since 2004.
This reunion was a solid reminder of the culture of lowriding being represented by the Bay Area, which has multiplied and intensified more than ever. The pride and passion were celebrated and on display for all to see throughout the day. It was great to see the quality and caliber of ’70s traditional rides and classic convertibles laid out all over the place. There were rows of bombs, bikes, and trucks displayed in and out.
Feeling the Streets
The competition and qualifying were up for grabs as the official Lowrider judging crew did their very best to distribute awards and trophies to the many deserving winners that were announced toward the end of the day. After that ceremony was eventually over, just about everyone jumped in their vehicles and caravanned down to the San Francisco Mission District for some back-and-forth cruising.
King of the Streets certainly lived up to its reputation and to see proof of that, check out the next episode of Lowrider Garage. We’ll bring the Bay Area’s best and baddest rides along with a few interviews and a celebrity ’59 Impala right to your computer or phone through our YouTube channel, Instagram page, and Facebook this Friday at 5 pm PST. See you all next week in New Mexico!
