THE MEMO FILES PART 1: ABOUT BEING YOUNG, SHARP AND SMART
In the Memo files, Memo Ortega aka Memo Chop shares his amazing memories from the 1940’s and up. This is his first story.
Memo Ortega has been into customizing since he was a young kid who customized his bicycles. He would later graduate onto real cars and hang out at the Ayala shop were he became good friends with Gil Ayala. In the late 1950’s Memo even bought Gil’s famous 1942-46 Ford coupe which Gill had started to remodel with quad headlights. Memo continued building custom cars and bikes and is still at it today.
Memo loves to share his memories about day’s long gone to show the “kids” today how cool things were back then. This is what he wrote:
That is purty kool. The bottom on Jesse Lopez his 1941 Ford, boy I loved that car. Seeing Jesse’s pants and shoes brings back a lot of memories. Me and my buddy used to fold our pants like that. what we did was buy our pants a little longer then narrowed the bottom and fold them up twice. Presto we had zoot zoot pants. And take a look at Jesse’s shoes. we did the same thing to ours. Wed go and buy some heels and souls from the shoes repairman and glued and nailed them ourselves and again presto we had zoot zoot shoes. Jesse must have been purty cool.
