Lowrider cars have their origins in the Chicano culture of the 1950s. Cruising in them was banned in San Francisco in the ’70s, during the Feinstein administration, but lowrider culture remains vibrant. “This car represents my youth, being free,” said Mario Jimenez about his 1967 Super Sport.

All the people who own these cars agree on one thing: It creates a connection between generations. “It takes me back to a time when there was dog poop everywhere in Dolores Park,” said Raga Loza.
