Throwback - Asphalt Invitational 2005

When we started Deadend Magazine back in 2004 one of the first events we attended was the 'Asphalt Invitational' hosted by Vultures Car Club. We had a great time and of course decided to go back 2005. Here are some shots from the 2005 event.

The Vultures was a small group of fellas with traditional hot rods & customs.

The Asphalt Invitational moved locations after this then later was discontinued. People in the greater bay area still talk about it.

Thanks for looking!
