- How did you get into old cars/trucks?
My dad’s first car was a 68 Charger R/T that my brother sister and I grew up in so when I turned 18 my dad offered me the car which I still own and drive on a weekly basis. As a pre teen growing up around family like Rafa and good friends that owned Lowriders and Bombs you naturally fell in love with our Mexican/Chicano culture so I knew one day I had to own a Lowrider or a Bomb. It took me until I was in my mid 30’s to make the dream come true unfortunately 13 years later and the car is still sitting in the garage due to finances and expertise to finish the car
- What was the first chevy bomb vehicle you owned?
I never owned a Chevy not because I don’t love them but because the opportunity to own a 36 Dodge was presented to me and being a guy who only owns Mopars it felt natural to want to buy the car. I thought like all young Chicanos that one day I would be driving a 39 or a 46-48 Chevy, little did I know.
- Which Chevy Bomb is your all time favorite?
As for a Chevy, I would have to say a 39 but I have always loved the 1936 Packard Super Eight 7 passenger Phaeton, “unfortunately it’s a rich man’s car”.
- What have you gotten out of ChevyBombs.com?
Made friends that I would have never got to know.
As a person always looking from the outside I know feel like I’m on the inside with the bomb guys even though my car is incomplete.
Seeing what other members are doing with their cars keeps me inspired that one day I will finish the Bomb.
Have had little help with my 36’ Dodge not that people have not tried to help it’s more like because almost all ChevyBombs.com members own GM products and they are not experts with the MOPAR’s.
5. As a ChevyBombs.com Veterano, is there anything you would like to share to the world?
Keep on building Bombitas so that the next generation understands and feels what it means to be part of this culture that we call Lowriding.
