LowRider Magazine's Custom Car Show - Alamodome, San Antonio

 

Sunday, September 14  2003

 

           

 

LowRider Magazine sponsored and held its annual custom car show this year in San Antonio, TX at the Alamodome.  The event invites cars, trucks, and bikes of all makes and models to participate in its annual lowrider event.  The event featured various classes for antique and classic cars, as well as classes for newer lowrider trucks and cars.  There were a large number of customized bicycles, cars, and trucks on hand for the judging competition.  Other attractions included a hopping contest for those that wanted to test out the hydraulic systems on their cars, various live music groups, food, bikini contests, and much more. 

 

           

 

In all there were around 400 old cars present that had gone through various levels of customization  to them.  Some were extreme custom lowriders while others looked to have been restored close to original.  A group of local car enthusiasts got together and caravanned up to San Antonio for this year's event.  Those that went up from the Rio Grande Valley, were more than glad they did, as the valley boys "represented" at the show very well.  A large number of the cars that went up from the valley won some award or placed in the judging competition.  In fact, the Viejitos car club from here in the valley received a special award from the event for having the best presentation by a car club at the show. 

 

       

 

        

 

Congratulations to all those from the valley that made it out with their cars and won awards at this event.  For more info on this show or other events sponsored by LowRider magazine,
