While it may be hard to believe how fast time flies; Latin World Car Club (Los Angeles Chapter) has recently hit their 30-year anniversary. The three-decade milestone saw 30 years fly by in the blink of an eye—especially for some of the long-time members. Nonetheless, the club celebrated the momentous occasion by throwing a picnic event in the city of South Gate, California, in which over 500 people came to see nice cars, eat great food, and listen to good music.
Latin World was established on November 14, 1982. Founder and current President, Tony Gomez, was one of the organizers of this grand event and he called upon the club’s other chapters to come down and help support the milestone picnic. Members from the Bakersfield, Phoenix, Avondale, and San Antonio chapters drove or flew in to the area as they were sure not to miss this important event.
Tony gives thanks to all the clubs who came out to support the celebration; such as Stylistics, Solo Riders, Our Image, Illustrious, Vintage Bombs, Way of Life, Viejitos, High Class, Westside Famlia, La Gente, South Bound, Our Style, Sick Side, O.G. Classics, Street Style, Forever Clowning, and Pharaohs. He also gives thanks to all other clubs that were present whom he might have forgotten to mention. Tony gives special thanks to Latin World members and their families and sends his gratitude to the sponsors, such as the American Legion South Gate, who graciously allowed the club to use the park for the picnic.
