Lowrider Legends of San Diego

The San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park is proud to
announce the opening of its new exhibit, Lowrider Legends of San Diego that will run through June 2, 2013. This exhibit features some of the finest examples of lowriders created in the San Diego area. These iconic cars have been part of the cultural landscape for decades. An ever evolving art form, lowriders have become an integral part of the
San Diego experience. This exhibit was designed by Carlos C. de Baca. This exhibit also highlights the life and work of David Aguilar. He learned his craft well over the years, and two of his signature lowriders are on display along with the rich history of how these cars evolved. A 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline and a 1935 Plymouth are the two examples of Aguilar’s work.
Other cars featured include: 1951 Chevrolet truck, 1950 Chevrolet, 1982
Cadillac, 1980 Monte Carlo, 1964 Chevrolet Impala, 1961 Chevrolet, 1949 Hudson, 1964
Buick Riviera, 1939 Chevrolet, and a 1952 Chevrolet truck. In addition, the exhibit also
features a 2007 Harley Davidson and several pedal cars.
Lowriding car club banners, plaques, models, jackets, and other memorabilia are
also included in the exhibit along with a display of hydraulic systems that raise and lower
the vehicles.
