The San Diego Lowrider Archival Project documents the history of lowriding in San Diego and the surrounding borderlands, from the 1950s through today.
The project includes photographs, car club documents and memorabilia, official records, meeting minutes, dance posters and lowrider art.
These materials reflect important qualities of the lowrider movement: creativity, independence, cultural pride, resistance, activism, community service, collectivism, tradition and ritual, and cultural continuity.
Please note that dates listed on each image are approximate.
