Lowrider Lowdown

Aug 1, 2018


It’s about cars, drivers, and music. Although the lowrider lifestyle begins and ends with the wheels, there’s lots of room for photo ops, movies, bands, magazines, street parties, music, and even fashion.

Born in Los Angeles, California, the lowrider movement originated with Chicanos picking up old Chevy Impalas and tricking them out. It spread to street culture, and urban youth embraced it fully.

KBBF pays tribute to the people and cars that keep the lowrider vibe alive.This August 18th, your favorite bilingual community radio station and the Sonoma County Lowrider Council join forces to present a Car Show with all the extras. Of course there will be music spun by the station’s DJs, plus games, food, drinks, and merchandise for sale. As always, this event is family-friendly, so bring everyone to station HQ at 1700 Corby Avenue, in Santa Rosa.

In the words of the co-organizers, the Sonoma County Lowrider Council, “Our mission is to preserve and promote various family events and competitions. We actively work to break down the stereotypes associated with the car culture and custom cars. Culture, history, and community are the three values we hold as part of our core values and hope to convey the beauty and complexity of custom cars with the world beyond. We promote ingenuity and creativity each year through friendly competition so that we can continue from year to year.”
