The 2007 Lowrider Magazine 30th Anniversary Tour reached its climactic conclusion at the annual Super Show held at Cashman Field in Las Vegas, Nevada, this past October. The event wouldn't have been possible without the support of sponsors Quaker State, CCE Hydraulics, Thump Records and Wanted Wear, as well as all of the clubs and individuals showing their vehicles and in attendance.

As Super Show Sunday began, we got to walk around and check out close to 700 vehicles that were pre-registered for the Tour grand finale. This giant indoor/outdoor event featured only the best of the best doing battle for top honors. With close to 20,000 people attending the show, the rows were filled to capacity. Spectators were clearly enjoying themselves in the cool (for Vegas) weather.

The anticipation for the Super Show had been building all year, and the event came and went in a blur. The weekend just isn't long enough for many of us. The Super Show setup began some three days earlier when people began to line up on Thursday night in order to be among the first to move into the show. Once you were in, it was all about setting up and cleaning up in time for the public and judges to see your pride and joy in the best light possible.

Once again, several cars made their debuts at the Super Show. Vegas local Andre McGee broke out his "Blueprint," a custom candy Oriental Blue '57 Chevy Bel Air convertible. The ragtop featured a flaked-out frame and a LS7 engine/700R transmission combination. Elite Car Club had been working on an '86 Chevy Monte Carlo Luxury Sport. The candy blue G-body's a full-custom frame-off vehicle that features a custom engine compartment and interior. The car was showcased on jack-stands next to Elite's "Passion" '80 Volkswagen Jetta, and was on full display with mirrors underneath to show off every aspect of the custom build.

Los Angeles C.C. had not made a statement at the Super Show since the debut of "Hustler '63" a few years ago. This time around, it was Jose Rodriguez' custom '64 Chevy Impala, "The Game Don't Last Forever," that was a few years in the making. The candy blue '64 features a custom flake job and "Scarface" murals. Lifestyle C.C. brought 10 new cars to "Sin City," including the club's latest Candy Factory creation, "Two Face," a custom '63 Impala with an intricate paint job. The ragtop owned by Albert Gonzales actually sports two different paint jobs, one on each side of the car, which guaranteed that the crowd needed to take a second look at this ride.

There were several other clubs making a splash at the Super Show. Majestics C.C. had Todd Land's '63 Impala, "Main Event," heading up the club's row, which also featured Big Rich's (R.I.P.) ragtop. Rollerz Only C.C. welcomed its latest member, "Royal Flush," to the club. Rollerz Only also claimed the new Lowrider of the Year crown with Orlando Ceballos' "Game Over" Cadillac taking the honor. Klique C.C. looked good as Robert Ceniceros' pink '70 Buick Riviera cover car (January '08 LRM) was one of several vehicles representing the club.

Uce C.C. did it in style displaying past and present champions in their 20x20 spots. Oldies C.C. had a strong lineup as well, including Chris Roark's "Darkside" '58 Impala, another recent cover car (November '07 LRM). Ultimate Ridaz C.C. likewise showed strong with Thomas Sisneros' '61 Impala among the club's collection of cars. Local Las Vegas clubs holding it down for their hometown included Street Players, One Luv, Royals and Desirable Ones.

In general, the indoor areas were looking good and had cars that appealed to everyone in the sport, including Michael Tovar's "Wanted '37" Chevy Cabriolet (again a recent LRM cover car; December '07), which won the Lowrider Excellence Award for its craftsmanship. This award is intended for cars that represent the lowriding community as a whole and this year's winner did it with style.
