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
