The Unique Ladies

Outrightly denied club membership on the basis of gender, Sherry and Pat founded and maintain San Diego’s first all-women’s lowrider car club. The competition is fierce, and the ladies hold their own. Although their club is only a few members strong in a field dominated by men, they cruise through a full season taking home a trophy at the end of the show. A ‘unique’ view on the Mexican American cultural phenomenon of lowriding, the ladies use their vehicles as art filled expressions of working class feminism to build their immediate community as well as their club.
