Our Family Car

Lujan, purchased the Chevy from a cousin in the early 1980’s while he was creating the movie-themed artwork in the Hollywood and Vine Metro station.

one of many of Lujan’s family cars looks essentially as it did in 1987 when Lujan used it as a canvas.

Using pinstriping brushes and lacquer-based textile crayons, Luján transformed his family’s 1950 Chevrolet sedan into a lowrider with what he called “a lighthearted kind of folk art narrative.” Unlike other lowriders, Luján humorously blends the aesthetic elements of street rods with symbols of Chicana/o culture.

Later, when times were tough, Lujan used the car to cover rent and traded it to his landlord, who stored it in the auto-salvage yard he owned.

Another artist bought it, but he then needed money, and a pawn shop ended up putting the car for sale on eBay.

Dunlap was shopping for a hot rod on the website when he saw the ad for the 1950 coupe, went to the shop, paid $7,000 for the Chevy and drove it home.

Dunlap sought out Lujan and commissioned the artist to restore the car to its original glory. They became close friends.

the National Historic Landmark assoc has been busy, I think they’ve actually sped up the process!

The last time I posted about the HVA, they were just doing the press release of the Thomas Flyer in June 2016, making it the 12th in this effort by the HVA to promote historic vehicles.

The first 14 (ending with the Camaro) are pretty easy to understand their iconic, historic, and cultural significance… but a 1920 Anderson? 1895 Benton Harbor? a 33 Graham? The rest are either obvious or easy to guess at. But these two have me stumped

Well, I read it, and I guess they have a point, but, I think you’ll agree there isn’t much about the Anderson to put it in this esteemed group.

The 1920 Anderson is one of only seven known survivors of South Carolina’s first automobile company that operated between 1916 and 1922. The Anderson is the first automobile to be added to the National Historic Vehicle Register for its local and regional historic significance.

Weak. Superficial, unworthy, and reminiscent of the “Me Too! Everyone Gets a Trophy for Participating” social idiocy.

To put it in with the Jeep that was critical to WW2, the Tucker and Y Job, the Futurliner, Meyers Manx and Cobra Daytona simply because it’s old and didn’t have what it took to survive in great numbers (like the Packards, Fords, Chevys)? Weak.

This example survives only due to the founding company owners family keeping it, and it’s now owned by Anderson’s great grandson

The Benton was an immediate flop, and they gave up.
