Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Chicano Park & Pomona Swapmeet

Another busy weekend in the books. Once again we headed down to Southern California. Besides the two events you see here, Chicano Park Day and Pomona Swapmeet, we also shot 3 cars and 2 models (which we'll post tomorrow)

We've been attending the Chicano Park Day celebration since 2006 and haven't missed one since. This year was going to be no different. Chicano Park Day is much more than a car show. The entire Chicano Park area and beyond is filled with smiling faces enjoying cars, music, food, art and much more. As you can see we go for the cars, but stay for the amazing food and refreshments.

The murals compliment the classic cars perfectly.
