If this was truly Raul Martinez's first event, we're so looking forward to more.
Martinez, the brains behind the SB 1070 Lowrider Car Show and Voter Registration event that took place over the weekend at El Pajarito, threw a slamming shindig that attracted loads of folks and phat rides.
Along with a lowrider hop and raffle for rims, the City of Phoenix police and fire departments were in the house, according to Martinez. The folks from Promise Arizona (PAZ) showed face, too, as well as a documentary film crew that are making a Senate Bill 1070-centric video that they plan to send to President Barack Obama.
Enough talk. Check out these images, courtesy of Tejano Tj Az Stulir.
