Although we, Unaffiliated, are very proud to claim that we are a part of the new-school generation of automotive enthusiasts, we have nothing but absolute respect for our elders. Last month we decided to stop by a local car show/fundraiser hosted by the Viejitos Car Club, sponsored by Wienerschnitzel. We can easily say that we learned a lot more about the culture than we did the actual cars themselves. Always study what came before you.
Car culture nowadays is heavily driven by media and organized events, which we are proud to say we contribute to. Although back in the day the love for automobiles was a love that was usually passed down through generations. Many families and car clubs were able to host gatherings and social events to unite everyone who had a passion for building and driving these beautifully crafted machines. As the cars grow older, the love grows stronger.
The feeling we get when we see a built up, candy painted, chrome finished bomber with original plates is almost indescribable. We get chills simply by the knowledge that these actual vehicles sitting before us started the automotive culture which lead to many makes and models in the future in which we all have fallen in love with countless times.
