Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - All Caught Up (Cinco De Mayo weekend)

Here's our coverage from 'Cinco de Mayo' weekend. We covered both Northern California & Southern California.

Our first stop was Hillview Park in San Jose, CA. We have been going to San Jose for Cinco de Mayo cruising for many years. It's good to see the car community still goes out to cruise.

After San Jose we headed a bit North to San Francisco to cruise the Mission. The cruising in the Mission is always a blast. The Low Riders come together every time and keep the cruising fun & safe.

Same night we also hit Hollywood Blvd. to check out the cruising. The turn out was a little overwhelming and the cops shut it down early. Too many people out blocking the streets, but we still had a great time.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - A week late

We've had a busy last couple of weeks. I didn't get to edit the photos from last weekend so here they are. 

Saturday (April 28, 2018) we headed to Sacramento for the "Nor Cal Influence" art show featuring art by Bruce Gossett, Brent Patten and Rob Struven at Graland's Customs. The turn out was great. There were a lot of great customs, hot rods & bombs that came to support the arts. We had a great time, we hope this becomes a regular thing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 04/24/18

There are car shows then there is Chicano Park Day... Every April Chicano Park in San Diego is filled with cultural acts, food, vendors, entertainment, and of course cars. We enjoy all of the above but make it down every year for the cars. San Diego never disappoints. There's always an abundance of nice cars all over the Logan Heights area. Hope you enjoy our coverage.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 04/11/18

This past weekend we made our annual 3300+ mile trek from Salinas, CA to Austin, Tx for the Lone Star Round Up. For the past 11 years we've had the pleasure of attending the 'Round Up' and year after year I am impressed with the cars but most importantly the people behind the event. I call it an event 'cause it's more than a show, it's an experience. For most the experience lasts more than the 2 car show days and everyone seems to have their favorite bbq joint to hit while in Austin. Steve, Brian & The Kontinentals (The people behind the event) do such a great job of making sure everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay that people from all across America continue to show up. See you there next year!

 photo borrowed from Miller Cochran from the Jalopy Journal. The last few years we have had the honor of awarding a car the "Deadend Magazine Pick" and every year we have a few conversations about a few cars we individually choose as our favorite until we collectively agree on a single car. This year we had narrowed it down to about 3 really cool cars until Jeff from Murrays Hot Rods pointed out this beautiful mild custom '36 Ford right before we turned in our slip. Somehow we missed it but glad Jeff pointed it out. Needless to say we gave it the Deadend pick. Great car!

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 03/20/18

We spent our weekend in Southern California once again. We started out the weekend shooting Lee Pratt's '55 Custom Nomad. Lee first built this Nomad in the late 1960's and he was lucky enough to get it back and resurrected it back to it's glory a couple years ago. If you're not familiar with Lee Pratt there is one thing you should know Mr. Pratt has built some of the classiest customs to cruise the streets of many states through out many decades. Here are a few photos of a good example.

We had a late start to our weekend. We started it Sunday morning at the Pomona Swapmeet at the Pomona Fairplex. As you can see from the photos we took at the swapmeet there are very many nice rides at the car corral. We spent so much time we practically missed the many vendor rows. See you at the next one.

Hawaii Lowriders

Our good friend/photographer 3LA (Mira) made the trip to Hawaii a couple weeks ago to attend the first annual Hawaii Lowriders Ball in Waipahu Oahu. Lowrider clubs from all over Hawaii attended and some brought out their rides. It's really cool to see low riders and the culture in the Aloha state. Enjoy
