It's been a busy week at the Deadend Magazine headquarters. The week followed an equally busy weekend. We headed to Southern California for a few shoots and a couple events.
Our first stop was National City to shoot James Thomson's latest purchase, a custom painted 1964 Chevy wagon. The wagon was built, painted (and owned) by Manuel Cisneros before James got his hands on it.
After we snapped some photos of Andrea Olivia wearing some Deadend Magazine gear with James' wagon and Marisa's Hudson (keep scrolling to see some shots of the Hudson)
Next we shot Marisa's 1949 Hudson from Dukes Car Club. Marisa has owned the Hudson for over 26 years and has slowly been working on it to make it look the way it does today.
After shooting in National City we headed to Bonita, CA for the Ilegales Car Club annual "Dia De Los Ilegales" Picnic.
After the picnic we headed to Logan Ave. in San Diego, CA for the grand opening of Barrio Dog and the Cruizin Galeria. It's always good to see low riders line up Logan.
Sunday Morning we headed to Riverside, CA to meet up with the fellas from Jimenez Brothers to shoot a 1938 Chevrolet Cabriolet. The owner Pelon Arzola goes to extreme measures to keep his '38 looking clean. One of the cleanest cars we've ever shot.
A couple of the Jimenez Bros' homies came through with their cool trokitas so we decided to snap a couple flicks of them as well.
Sunday afternoon we headed to Baldwin Park for a couple a few shoots. Our first there was Johhny Urias' 1959 Chevy Impala.
Next up was Maygin Stormes wearing some Deadend Magazine gear.
We've been trying to shoot Phillip Gabriel's Lincoln for a few months and glad we were finally able to. These days it's getting harder to build a mild custom and really stand out. We believe Phillip achieved this with his Lincoln and all it took was a killer color, the right stance and wheels.
Thanks for looking!
