After a nice morning in Marina, CA we headed up to San Carlos, CA to attend the 'Bay Area Cruise Night' (another first for Deadend Magazine) The BACN was very fun. A wide variety of cars (from hot rods to low riders to foreigns) show up, admire each others work, hang out for a while then hit the boulevard. Many cruise late into the night. You should make it a point to attend the next one.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Santa Maria Cruisin Nationals

This past weekend we headed to Santa Maria, CA for the annual West Coast Kustoms' Cruisin Nationals. We've been going to this event for over 15 years and don't plan on missing it any time soon. Not only is it one of our favorite shows to attend (and vend) but it also marks our anniversary. Back in 2004 Deadend Magazine debuted at Paso Robles. Although the location has changed the Cruisin Nationals still a great event. The cruising Friday night is the hightlight of the event for us and Saturday is a great time at the booth. Thanks to all who stopped by and grabbed some Deadend Magazine gear. Enjoy..
