Dukes Car Club

The Dukes Car Club of Tucson presents a collection of over 40 lowrider cars plus demonstrations on how to trick out your own car, exemplifying this long-standing, west-coast tradition of “embellishing the ordinary.”
The Dukes are the oldest lowrider car club in the United States, specializing in pre-1960s Chevrolets. The Tucson Chapter has been in partnership with TMY for more than 25 years. Presented by this year by D2+ Dispensary.

Cars roll in at 5pm Friday.
30-minute demonstrations throughout Saturday and Sunday 

Saturday: Hydraulics 101 – Learn about what makes the cars bounce!
Sunday: “Oldies Day” dedicated to “Bombs.” The Dukes one and only Al Teran Sr. shares the history of Dukes Car Club and traditional old-school lowrider styles.
