For the seventh year, 25th Street Riders and USO Car Club joined forces to welcome in the New Year at spacious and historic Virginia Key Beach in Miami, Florida. Almost as tradition, 2016 welcomed the best year yet with hundreds of custom lowrider vehicles making their way from as far as California to celebrate the lifestyle.
“It’s an honor to hold this event in South Florida every year,” Martian, a 25th Street Riders original, says. “We do it for the love of the custom car scene down here but most importantly for the lowrider community.” Both clubs wish to thank everyone who traveled and the local enthusiasts for their continued support, including all the sponsors and vendors.
Team Midwest showed their dedication as they lined the hopping pit with some of the most notorious high flyers in the country. From Wisconsin, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, it was a blending of every state for a great time.
Although a small thunderstorm threatened the day early on, like true Miami fashion after 20 minutes there was no sign of any inclement weather as the temperature bounced right back to 80 degrees. As one of the staples on the calendar for shows to attend, 25th Street Riders and USO’s New Year’s Picnic is something that you just can’t miss.
