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.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 08/24/18

Been a busy week so here's a late weekend report. However we think it's worth the wait.

We were finally able to make it to the Bombs Magazine Bombs Super Show this year. Glad we did. The Anaheim Convention Center was filled with some of the best Bombs from all over the country.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth!

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 08/07/18

We spent this past weekend in hot, sunny Southern California.

Our first stop was Us Versus Them's 'Ramble On At The Ranch' show on Saturday in Temecula, CA. Mike & co. host a very inviting & intimate show with some great cars, great people, good vendors, good food and a wonderful atmosphere.

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...

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 07/02/18

This weekend we stayed close to home but still had fun shooting. We snapped some shots of Ruben Cardona's clean 1937 Lincoln Zephyr and also shot Genesis wearing some of our newest designs for the ladies and some hats that have been re-stocked.

Ruben has had his Zephyr for a few years now. Through the years he has slowly been working on it to where it is now and has more plans for the car. It's really cool to see Ruben cruise it and enjoy it through the process.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 04/11/18

This past weekend we made our annual 3300+ mile trek from Salinas, CA to Austin, Tx for the Lone Star Round Up. For the past 11 years we've had the pleasure of attending the 'Round Up' and year after year I am impressed with the cars but most importantly the people behind the event. I call it an event 'cause it's more than a show, it's an experience. For most the experience lasts more than the 2 car show days and everyone seems to have their favorite bbq joint to hit while in Austin. Steve, Brian & The Kontinentals (The people behind the event) do such a great job of making sure everyone feels welcome and enjoys their stay that people from all across America continue to show up. See you there next year!

 photo borrowed from Miller Cochran from the Jalopy Journal. The last few years we have had the honor of awarding a car the "Deadend Magazine Pick" and every year we have a few conversations about a few cars we individually choose as our favorite until we collectively agree on a single car. This year we had narrowed it down to about 3 really cool cars until Jeff from Murrays Hot Rods pointed out this beautiful mild custom '36 Ford right before we turned in our slip. Somehow we missed it but glad Jeff pointed it out. Needless to say we gave it the Deadend pick. Great car!

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.

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.

We started our weekend shooting Dennis' freshly painted 1938 Lincoln Zephyr coupe. Dennis has been working on a really nice collection of custom cars. This is one of his latest builds. Aside from being laid out the British green paint really makes this Zephyr stand out.

This weekend we shot Adam Gonzalez' fresh 65 Buick Riviera. Adam is a local homie who has been building low riders since he was in high school. He owns a candy painted 1966 Impala, a laid out 1963 Chevy wagon and is also building a convertible 1959 Chevy Impala. He decided to go the more traditional custom route with his Riviera. He painted it candy and had Eddie Padilla do patterns on the roof, then did the air ride and put Supremes with wide white walls. We were lucky enough to be the first to shoot this beautiful ride. We hope to see it all the local car events or just cruising the streets.

We started the weekend shooting a very cool local Chevy pick-up owned by Santiago. We literally saw Santiago cruise by the Deadend Magazine store one day and knew we had to shoot the pick-up. We're glad finally had the chance to snaps some pics of it. The pick-up is as clean in person as it looks in pics. Enjoy.
