1.How did you get into old cars/trucks?

Back in the 70’s my neighbors were from a club called “Chevy boys car club” in Santa Fe Springs CA as well as my older brother Cha-Cho and a couple homies from my neighborhood who were already low riding introduced me to the low riding scene I knew it would be something I would be real fond of especially when my homie Danny boy picked up a 1953 Chevy pick up 5 window I grew quite infatuated with it and knew I had to own one of my own. In 1984 my dream became a reality when I was able to purchase a 1953 Chevy 5 window pickup truck which I’ve now owned for 33 years however back at that time Oldies But Goodies truck shop in Los Nietos, Ca had opened up I was able to go there for my lowering blocks I knew the lower the better as well as all other accessories such as a visor, fender strips, hood ornament, cattle guard etc…

 

2. What was the first Chevy bomb vehicle you owned?

I have owned a number of Chevy/bombs growing up as an early teen I drove a 1964 Chevy wagon owned a 68 Chevy impala and a 74 Malibu all customized with low rider features Tru-spokes lifts 520 tires I even had a chain steering wheel in one of them in my early 20s I purchased my 1953 Chevy pickup,  as I grew older I went on to purchase a 1966 SS impala a 1948 Chevy helmet and a 1949 Chevy Fleetline which Is currently in the making for the 2016/17 era. However to answer your question lol, it would have to be the 1964 Chevy wagon my dad had purchased for me and I took it from there.

3. Which Chevy Bomb is your all time favorite

I would have to say the 1953 5 window custom cab Chevy pickup truck it was something I admired as a teen and to this day.

 

4. What have you gotten out of ChevyBombs.com?

Unlike most social media networks of our time this was something I could and wanted to relate/ be a part of. It has unity amongst other low rider enthusiast and I’ve came across plenty of good people I now call my friends and when in the time of need I was able to seek help or advice from other members concerning a part or a sort of accessories I was in need of.
5. As a ChevyBombs.com Veterano, is there anything you would like to share to the world?

I’m just glad I was able to come across Eddie at a car show back in 2006 and was asked to join the chevybomb.com familia it’s been a pleasure. And I’ve been doing this for a long time just keep up the tradition the culture and share the knowledge/ lifestyle with your family your kids nieces and nephews they are the future of this great low riding future.
