If you like to drive low and slow or just appreciate the West Coast car scene, then you’ll need to swing by the 2019 Atlanta Lowrider Super Show in Marietta this weekend.
More than 200 lowriders and other custom vehicles will roll into Jim R. Miller Park for the annual show that raises money for several charities. The show is hosted by the Krazy Vatos Atlanta Lowrider Car Club.
“You will absolutey have a great time,” said James Guyton, a member of the club. “It is not uncommon to smile the entire time you are there.”
Guyton said that in addition to some of the most beautiful cars in the South being on display, the show boasts a car-hopping competition/exhibition, lowrider models, a bikini contest, authentic Hispanic food, and live performances by rappers Capone, Dyablo, Conexion Clan and others.
Krazy Vatos was started in 2015 by five men with a lot of passion for the lowrider culture. It is the largest lowrider club in Atlanta with more than 30 active members.
“[The club] is known for unity, brotherhood and above all is 100% family oriented,” Guyton said.
Club members say the lowrider car culture is increasing in popularity in the South, especially in Georgia.
“The state of the lowrider culture in Atlanta is booming,” said Gerardo Patino, vice president of the club. “It is more active than ever. Plus, we believe that lowriders are the next big thing in the Southeast. We plan to showcase that fact this Saturday.”
