Chicanos created the lowrider on the Eastside as far back as the 1940s. The car style peaked in the 1970s and '80s in popular cruising zones from Whittier to Van Nuys, becoming as integral to Los Angeles' car culture as freeways. Following two similarly themed exhibits in 2000 and 2008, the Petersen Automotive Museum's "The High Art of Riding Low: Ranflas, Corazon e Inspiracion" pays tribute to the art and culture of lowriders. The collection includes paintings, drawings, photographs, lithographs and sculpture, in addition to the customized vehicles themselves, such as a 1950 Chevrolet Sedan, 1963 and 1968 Chevrolet Impalas and 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe. The opening reception features light refreshments and KCRW DJ Raul Campos.
