Mooneyes X-Mas Party 2018

Every second weekend of December the Mooneyes crew put together a great event at Irwndale Speedway. For most this is the closing automotive event of the year. What a great event to close the year with. The show area is jam packed with all different types of cars from all over California. Drag racers light up the track all afternoon long and the vendor area brings out some great brands for people to do some last minute Christmas shopping. For the first time in 7 years we were one of those brands.

Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show 2018

This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending and vending at the Mooneyes Custom Hot Rod Show in Yokohama Japan. There aren’t many events like the world renowned annual “Yokohama” show. People from all across the world make the trek to check out the colorful Japanese low riders, crazy customs, and invited guests from all over the globe. There really is no other event like it. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Fit Kustom Tokyo Japan

El Classico is a shop based in Tokyo Japan, better know by their car club name "Fit Kustoms". They build top notch American custom cars. One of their most notable builds is the candy red 1957 Chevy Nomad know as "Acid 57". We visited the shop on our latest trip to Japan. We have been there in the past but we are still blown away every time we see the latest projects and their parts collection.

Custom Hill 2018

Last month we visited Japan to attend the Custom Hill Reunion. We were fortunate enough to ride with our homies from Pharaohs Car Club. The Pharaohs all drive very traditional styled lowriders with hydraulics and bias ply tires. We rolled with them on a five hour drive from Nagoya to the car show. The drive was a lot of fun and a great experience, the car show did not disappoint. There was a good mix of customs and lowriders and even some cool hot rods, surrounded by beautiful nature. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

The Road to Custom Hill Reunion 2018 w/Pharaohs Car Club

We have been fortunate enough to travel to Japan numerous times, and every time is a different and great experience. The best part of being in Japan is making memories with old and new friends, having the opportunity to become friends with the people we meet and interact with.

A couple of weeks ago we went back to Japan to attend the Custom Hill car show, we really didn’t know much about the event but we had heard good things about it. We were lucky enough to ride from Nagoya to the show area with our homies from Pharaohs Car Club and a couple of rides from Primera Car Club. Junichi and the rest of the crew let us ride with them in their bad ass low riders. It took us about five hours with a couple of stops in between. I noticed that every car in the caravan was riding on bias ply 5.20 tires and hydraulics, and a half of them had candy paint. It was impressive to see that they were willing to drive so far in such traditional cars even driving thru some rain. It was a great experience and we hope to do it again next time we visit Japan.

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.

Sunday morning we did something we should've done a long time ago. Something we were actually surprised we hadn't done before. We shot and filmed Coby Gewertz' custom Ford Econoline "VanGo." If you haven't heard of or seen VanGo you haven't been paying attention. The crazy cool Econoline has been showing at shows & cruising the streets for a few years now. Some highlights include Coby driving the van from Southern California to Austin Texas and more recently the van took a trio to Mooneyes' Yokohama show in Japan. Everything about VanGo is cool. The exterior paint, the suspension, the wheels, the custom work and then you open the side doors. The interior is just as cool as the exterior. We're glad we finally took the time to shoot Coby's van. Stay tuned for the video...

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.
