Ink at the Bay Car Show

We spent last Sunday in Monterey, CA at the Ink by the Bay tattoo convention & car show hosted by Oldies Car Club. The weather was as nice as it gets, the tattoo machines were going all day, the music was playing all day and of course some really nice cars filled the fairground lawn from all over the Monterey area and beyond. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

San Jose Throwback Cruise

This past Saturday the low riders came out in numbers to cruise Santa Clara St. in San Jose, CA for the “Throwback Cruise.” We love to see cars cruising up and down the street more than seeing them at a car show. Something about being in their natural environment just makes sense.

Santa Maria West Coast Cruising Nationals 2019 (Car Show)

Year after year some of the best custom cars from across the country show up at the Santa Maria Fairplex on Memorial weekend for the West Coast Kustoms’ Cruisin Nationals. The crazy California weather we’ve been having only put a damper on Sunday’s activities but Saturday there were a lot of nice rides to see all across the lawn. Everything from back yards builds to full show cars. Here are a few photos we captured. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Enjoy!

Santa Maria West Coast Cruisin' Nationals 2019 (Friday Night Cruise)

This day and age there is no shortage or car shows, especially here in California. Some of them like the West Coast Kustoms Cruising Nationals have been around for a long time and have built a legacy for hosting some of the best custom cars in the world. The absolute coolest part of this event is the Friday night cruise. We have always said that classic cars look best in motion, especially lead sleds and chop tops. If you didn’t make the trip to Santa Maria here are a few of the cars that cruised Broadway.

Enjoy!

Deadend Magazine Feature - Jeff Cecilio's 1953 Chevy

In our opinion style is the most important thing when building a custom car. The profile, stance, paint, wheel and tire combo, and small details all make a car look good if they all work well together. This 53 chevy owned by our friend Jeff was styled in part by the team at Starlite Rod and Custom in Southern California. Everything from the great color choices to the floating grill and heavy chop all give the car a unique look. A lot of 53/54 Chevys have been customized in the past but this one sure does stand out.

Lone Star Round Up 2019

Another 3,300 mile road trip from Salinas, CA to Austin in the books. Every April for the last 13 years we’ve made the trip (twice we flew if we’re being honest) to the Lone Star Round Up and every year is a memorable one. This year’s show was memorable for many reasons. First off we had the pleasure of designing the official show artwork. (Thanks again Kontinentals for the opportunity) Second, the weather (per usual) surprised us (we never learn) Third, seeing our friends we only see in Texas is always fun. Lastly, we always seem to meet new people. People who seem to follow Deadend via social media and are excited to stop by the booth and chat.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

This year’s badge with the artwork created by us.

Check out the latest Deadend Magazine video!

The 2019 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA

The show nicknamed the "Grand Daddy of Them All!" lives up to the hype year after year. Nine buildings filled with everything from patina'd traditional customs to over the top high end hot rods competing for the most prestigious award a roadster can receive, there is literally something for every car lover to see.

Thanks for watching!
