“Being in a car club is not a hobby but a way of life” words from president Hector “Oso” Rivera of the “Artistic’s”. Hector has been in the car club for thirty years and has been into the car scene for a total of thirty-three.
There are two chapters one in LA and the other in the OC. In LA there are twelve members and twelve cars so it’s clear that everyone is hands on when it comes to their own car. The “Artistic’s” are not just for pretty cars they also volunteer their time for charitable events. With 6 charities a year the SFVHS football team is just one that they’ve dedicated 5 years to.
For the “Artistics" every member shows up. A lot of the time people don’t understand that these shows are a great way for family and friends to come together. As Mr. “Oso” would say, “The car scene starts with family then networking falls into place.”

They aren't classics, but you cant go wrong with fast motorcycles, good lookin' men, and a bada*% chick fight. Torque definitely goes in the movie collection.
