carShiny chrome, dazzling sequins and artful detailing were plentiful Sunday, April 30 at Underhill parking lot, where local low rider enthusiasts showed off more than 100 prize autos for a Semana de la Raza Low Rider Car and Bicycle Show.

Organized by the student organization MEChA and the East Bay-based Low Riders Limited, the event brought campus and community together in a celebration of Chicano-Latino culture and an effort to dispel stereotypes about low riding. The name of this Isuzu is "My Toy 2."
