The name of this sculpture is Cruising San Mateo I. However, it is popularly known around town as "Chevy on a Stick." It was erected as part of a street-widening project on Gibson Boulevard (at San Mateo). Some citizens objected to the cost, others to the aesthetics. However, now it has become treasured by the people, and is frequently voted "Best in 'Burque" in the local alternative newspaper, The Alibi.
