Throughout the years, my father has documented those reunions by taking many photos of los veteranos. As they reflect on their liveshistory, and future at those reunions, it was always about friendship.

In closing, I started this series on the history of Old-Timers Friends Reunion to organize my father’s archives. But, it has motivated me to continue those stories and develop it into a future article titled,  Cruisin’ With Los Veteranos: Community, Identity, And Music In Southern California.

Since the first gathering in 1998, many of los veteranos have passed away. They have been honored through t-shirts, posters, and flyers at the Old-Timers Friends Reunions.
