Rolling Through The Streets Of East La And Boyle Heights In Timeless Classics

For many people in the Chicano community, car shows and cruising are a fun way to spend a weekend. For Leilani Arevalo’s family, they’re a tradition. “My grandpa, Carlos ‘Moon’ Arevalo, has a 1971 Vega that got wrecked in an accident and he wanted to beautify his car again. It took him four years to get this car back to its original look, and it even has its original tires. He says lowriding has always been in his blood and wanted to have his grandkids grow up around his cars and sooner or later pass his cars down to them.” See Arevalo’s photo essay at Boyle Heights Beat.
