New Year's Weekend 2019

They say the way you begin the new year is the way you will spend the rest of the year. In our case they are absolutely right. We always spend New Year’s Day at some kind of car event. The start of 2019 was no exception. We split up and covered a few events.

Our last photo shoot of 2018 was with our friend Mayra Kay in our hometown of Salinas, CA.

We didn’t have to head far to go to the next event. Less than a 10 minute drive actually. Holaday Park was full from one end to the other.

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.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth!

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.
