Thirty-five years of existence isn’t an easy task for a car club to accomplish but Low Conspiracy is one of the few clubs that has managed to do so. Realizing the magnitude of the occasion, the club wanted to commemorate it by holding an event that could match the momentous anniversary. To celebrate the grand occasion, the club and La Rosa Bella produced “A Summer Get Together” on August 21, 2011 at Swiss Park Bar and Grill in Newark, CA. Attendees would be treated to a parade of quality cars, food, and musical performances in honor of the club’s longevity.
The event was a show and shine, but all the car entrees received a goody bag loaded with car care products and a small Low Conspiracy banner. Some of the clubs in attendance included Low Creations, Brown Persuasions, Viejitos, Impalas, Bay Bombs, Tradicionals, Style Kings, Padrinos, Rollerz Only, Lay M Low, Chicano Legacy, Blvd Bombs, Midnighters and the Dukes. “I would like to thank Chris Roark for bringing out his son’s ’58 and Manuel Corbala for bringing out “Strictly Business”. Some of the people at the show had never seen a show car of that caliber so it was a treat for some of the people there to see those cars,” said John Ponce, President of Low Conspiracy. While spectators were treated to a bevy of quality Lowriders, they were also treated to hamburgers and hot dogs cooked with care by the Low Conspiracy club.
The atmosphere was further energized through the entertainment for the day. Hosted by Beer Run Bobby, a variety of artists performed on the day including the legendary soul singer Brenton Wood. The all ages crowd sang along to a set full of his hits, including the classic oldie “Me and You.” Aside from the venerable Mr. Wood, the music on the day was further enjoyed thanks to the efforts of a talented group with an inside connection to Low Conspiracy. With a former Low Conspiracy member in a band called Mystique, it was only right to have them come out and perform a few of their tunes for the crowd as well.
Perhaps the biggest success on the day was that the event lived up to the lofty expectations of the club itself. “I’m very thankful for all of the members that are in the club today. They did a lot of work to get an event like this going, and I want to show my gratitude for all their work and for bringing the cars out,” says John . The club would like to thank the owners of Swiss Park Bar and Grill and La Rosa Bella for making the event possible. Congratulations are in order for Low Conspiracy and their 35 years of service and excellence in the Lowrider culture.
