Located about five miles southeast of downtown Tucson, Reid Park was the site of the 7th annual Old Memories Car Club Tucson chapter picnic. This year’s picnic brought questionable dark skies and a few rain drops, but the cars and people still came out to support the event, which was filled with food, fun and music for the entire family.
Old Memories Car Club chapters from all over the southwest attended the picnic. In attendance were chapters from Las Cruces, Phoenix, Eastside, SGV, El Paso, High Desert and South L.A. Also in attendance was Tony Lopez, founder of the Tucson chapter of Old Memories, who drove his 1933 Hupp mobile out from L.A. Besides Old Memories car club chapters, clubs from throughout Tucson and Phoenix came out as well. Those clubs included Distructive, Imperials, Majestics, Phoeniquiera Classics, Sophisticated Few, and Streets Car Xlub.
With only a handful of Lowrider car shows in the Tucson area, picnics like the Old Memories one are slowly becoming a staple in keeping the Lowrider movement strong and alive in Southern Arizona. With the continued support from riders and the community, this picnic is well on its way to becoming a tradition in Tucson, and a picnic to look forward to each and every year.
Old Memories Tucson would like to thank all of the Old Memories chapters for attending, and for showing the love and support necessary to start a tradition. They know that with all the other clubs and solo riders who came out, this picnic will only get better every year.
