We find ourselves opening the gates of time once again, this time our Lowrider time machine is headed for the years of 1991-1992. This was a turbulent time in the world and on the Boulevard. The Soviet Union was dissolved, Apartheid ended, Operation Desert Storm began, Magic Johnson announced to the world that he had the HIV virus, and the Boulevards of Los Angeles were on fire as the L.A. Riots erupted after a jury acquitted the police officers on trial for the beating of Rodney King. Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg released their classic “Nuthin’ But a G Thang” video, which featured a procession of Lowriding Impalas in 1992, while Mini-Trucks and G-Body cars continued to dominate the Boulevard. We hope you’ll take a moment and soak in these pages, which will undoubtedly open a floodgate of memories for some, and hopefully be a history lesson for others.
We realize that we can’t do justice to 35 years of memories in this section alone, so we’ve compiled the best of the best to appear from different time periods over the course of each of the 12 issues for this calendar year, in an effort to share with you some of our favorites. Each issue will focus on a different era, and give you a glimpse of what life in the culture was like back then. It is our sincere hope that these images will restore, renew, and revive the creator in all of you, and bring some history to the forefront of our amazing culture. Here’s to shining the headlights on another 35 years! Remember, this collection will be featured in all 12 issues of this year, so make sure to collect them all!
