“Take a Little Trip” through Lowrider History in Santa Fe [VIDEO]
Santa Fe, north of Albuquerque, is a pretty easy drive from El Paso.
The New Mexico History Museum, 113 Lincoln Avenue in Santa Fe, opened a new exhibit chronicling the history, fashions, styles and...of course...the vehicles of the lowrider culture. According to the santfenewmexican.com:
Lowriders, Hoppers and Hot Rods: Car Culture of Northern New Mexico tells a story of passion, creativity, pride, and tradition handed down over generations of car aficionados. The history of classic rides in Northern New Mexico reveals a singular culture and its customs, along with the imagination, skill, and community that go into transforming an old car into a stunning work of art. The exhibit runs through March 5, 2017, and the opening kicks off a season of lowrider-related events sponsored by the museum, including a mayor-designated Lowrider Day on the Plaza, complete with a car show, on May 22.
This would be a great weekend getaway fro Borderland car buffs! The exhibit runs through March 5th, 2017. For more info, click here or call (505) 476 - 5200.
