2018 Den­ver Lowrider Su­per Show

2018 DEN­VER SU­PER SHOW

Low Rider - - CON­TENTS - STORY & PHO­TOS BY BETO MEN­DOZA

This year the Den­ver Su­per Show went down on July 1, mark­ing not only an­other suc­cess­ful show but also the last stop prior to the grand fi­nale— the Las Ve­gas Su­per Show, which will now be an all-in­door show hosted at the Las Ve­gas Con­ven­tion Cen­ter.

Be­fore we get into the de­tails about the Den­ver Su­per Show, let me clar­ify a few mis­con­cep­tions and ru­mors that have been float­ing around.

Here are the facts:

1. You DO NOT need to qual­ify at any of our shows in or­der to show your ride at the Las Ve­gas Su­per Show.

2. The only ones who NEED to qual­ify are the heavy hit­ters who are com­pet­ing for an “of the Year” ti­tle (i.e. “Orig­i­nal of the Year,” “Lowrider of the Year,” Bomb of the Year,” and so on).

3. If you are com­pet­ing for any other cat­e­gory, you DO NOT NEED TO QUAL­IFY at a prior show in or­der to en­ter your ride into the Las Ve­gas show.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, the Den­ver Su­per Show was a blast. Packed with the am­biance and fla­vor you’ve come to ex­pect, com­peti­tors showed up strong and NorCal def­i­nitely made a scene when they rolled out with a '42 Chevy and a '58 Im­pala con­vert­ible that qual­i­fied for the sweep­stakes. The '42 is a full rad­i­cal bomb en­ti­tled “Cap­tain Amer­ica,” and it will be com­pet­ing for the “Bomb of the Year” ti­tle. Chris Roark busted out a '58 that placed and qual­i­fied as a con­tender for the “Orig­i­nal of the Year” ti­tle.

Ad­di­tional heavy­weights at the show in­cluded Bobby Garza from Good Times. On dis­play was his '57 dubbed “Dou­ble Trou­ble,” as well as his '87 Cut­lass called “RM Se­ries.” Even though both of Bobby’s rides were al­ready qual­i­fied for the “Lowrider of the Year” ti­tle so there was no need for him to show up to the Den­ver show to qual­ify, as an avid sup­porter of the Lowrider brand, he still showed strong and says, “It’s a lot of work to make it out to ev­ery Lowrider show, but this is what I love to do.”

With hun­dreds of cars on full dis­play, there was a lit­tle some­thing for ev­ery­one but one of the high­lights came from the lo­cal chap­ter of High Class Car Club. Only three years old, the club brought out a high-cal­iber group­ing of cars and has right­fully made waves in Colorado. Speak­ing of new clubs, Tech­niques just re­cently opened up a lo­cal chap­ter in Den­ver and to help cel­e­brate the ex­pan­sion, mem­bers from Los An­ge­les and Las Ve­gas come out to sup­port them in sol­i­dar­ity. Of course one couldn’t talk about the show with­out mak­ing men­tion of Suave Car Club and their col­or­ful tri­fecta of '64 Im­palas in or­ange, yel­low, and green.

So as we ramp up for the Las Ve­gas Su­per Show, we’d like to thank you all for con­tin­u­ally sup­port­ing the orig­i­nal, long­est-last­ing show ded­i­cated to lowrid­ing. With­out your sup­port the scene would have faded long ago, and with­out the help of our spon­sors none of this would have been pos­si­ble, so we’d like to ex­tend

a thanks to our show spon­sors Krazy Kut­ting, Xtreme Auto Soundz, Mile High Jewel­ers, and Hoppo’s.
