Deadend Magazine Late Weekend Report - 10/18/17

Sunday morning we met up with Victor Luna (Style Kings) to shoot his mild custom 1951 Mercury in Fremont, CA. Vic picked up this beautiful Mercury not to long ago from a local car collector who built it back in the 1980's. So far Vic has only made minor changes to the car. The biggest being adding hydraulic suspension and changing the hubcaps, which really changed the profile of the car.

Saturday morning we headed to Antioch, CA to vend and shoot at Billetproof. We've been attending Billetproof for over 10 years and have been vending almost as many. We always have a good time and look forward to seeing our friends from all over the bay area and their cars. This year we had a great time once again. As you can see there were many nice customs, hot rods and even low riders. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Sunday morning we shot Ray Landa's 1959 Chevy Apache in Soledad, CA. Ray is one of the locals here in Monterey County who has been in the car scene for many years, he joined New Image Car Club back in 1977 and has been cruising ever since. His truck is one of those cool rides you can see on the streets any given day. Being laid out and rolling on Supremes with white walls gives it just the right look, so we had to get some shots of it. We are working on putting together a little video of our shoot so stay tuned.
