Vatos locos for life!

A PBS documentary made in 1982 about an East Oakland Chicano gang called Barrio 60's and the Parkin family. Check out Oakland's Chicano Cholo and Lowrider culture of the early 80's, this is what the town used to be like back in the days.

Take an ordinary Detroit car, customize it inside and out, and lower it to the ground. The focus of a Mexican-American social scene that includes cruising on weekend nights, car shows and hopping contests. The car is driven slowly, the better to be appreciated. It is art. Not museum art, but street art, living art, folk art.
