Forest preserve picnics are a common sight this time of year. For car buffs, these gatherings over BBQ and picnic blankets serve as the backdrop for informal shows of classic cars including lowriders, hoppers and cruisers. On any given weekend, these picnics bring together car club members, enthusiasts and their families. WBEZ’s Yolanda Perdomo brings us the scene from western Cook County.
