A Tribute to the Lowrider

April 20, 1999|SUSAN CARPENTER

Ask any lowrider and he'll tell you: The car is an art form. This is especially true in New Mexico, which has a long history of lowriding. In 1992, the Smithsonian Institution acquired a lowrider from the state's Chimayo region and put it on permanent exhibition. Now the University of New Mexico Press is cementing the state's status as a hotbed of lowrider activity with Jack Parsons' "Low 'N Slow," a coffee table book with more than 100 cars strikingly photographed against a desert backdrop. Ay, que lindo. Beautiful.
