Sunday we headed to Murrieta & Temecula to shoot Jesse Martinez' 1953 Chevy. The Chevy first caught our eye at the Pomona Swapmeet last year. The color is what initially attracted us to the car. Last month we seen it again at the Bombs Super Show and knew we should snap some pics of the car. Jesse knows he has a few more things to finish up the car and has help from his daughter Avery Martinez along the way but continues to enjoy driving the car while building it.

Video: Deadend Magazine Spotlight | Ruben Cardona's 1937 Lincoln Zephyr

The 1937 Lincoln Zephyr has become a staple and sought after car in the traditional American car community. It is bucket list car for many. The sleek and "deco" curves and lines of the Zephyr make for a great "stock custom."

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report: SF King of the Streets & Bay Area Dam Run.

Every year we look forward to what we would call one of the most fun events we go to all year, San Francisco's King Of The Streets. You see The San Francisco Lowrider Council & company do such a great job with  providing so much to do in 1 day it makes for a great time. First there's the car show with hundreds of entries, then there's the hop with hoppers from all over the state competing for the crown and last the event goes to the streets. The Mission district to be exact. Low riders flood the streets of San Francisco making for a great (long) day.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - A week late

We've had a busy last couple of weeks. I didn't get to edit the photos from last weekend so here they are. 

Saturday (April 28, 2018) we headed to Sacramento for the "Nor Cal Influence" art show featuring art by Bruce Gossett, Brent Patten and Rob Struven at Graland's Customs. The turn out was great. There were a lot of great customs, hot rods & bombs that came to support the arts. We had a great time, we hope this becomes a regular thing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 03/20/18

We spent our weekend in Southern California once again. We started out the weekend shooting Lee Pratt's '55 Custom Nomad. Lee first built this Nomad in the late 1960's and he was lucky enough to get it back and resurrected it back to it's glory a couple years ago. If you're not familiar with Lee Pratt there is one thing you should know Mr. Pratt has built some of the classiest customs to cruise the streets of many states through out many decades. Here are a few photos of a good example.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 02/13/18

This past weekend we headed down to Southern California once again. We had a chance to shoot Rudy's "Chile Verde" Chevy Pick-Up. If you've ever been cruising in the So Cal area in the last 16+ years chances are you've seen Rudy hitting the streets. He takes his truck out for a cruise as often as possible. We've definitely enjoyed seeing 'Chile Verde' cruise the last few years and glad we finally had a chance to shoot it.
