6th annual Custom Capital

This past weekend we hosted the 6th annual Custom Capital at Manzanita Park in Prunedale, CA. To say we had a good time is an understatement. Seems like every year the show keeps getting better & bigger. Customs, hot rods, and low riders came from all over California. Thanks to everyone who brought a car, our sponsors, vendors, our family & friends and anyone who continued to support what we do.

The Legacy Show

Tribal Gear celebrated 30 years by hosting the Legacy Show at the Broadway Pier in San Diego, CA. Bobby Ruiz founder of Tribal Gear always host great events, and this years Legacy was one for the books. Nothing but top quality low riders and custom cars in a great setting surrounded by the San Diego city scape and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There was a lot to see all in one place, cars, good vendors, great food, good music, good drinks, skate boarding exhibit and an amazing art exhibit. People from all over the world attended and celebrated a part of west coast history.

Ink at the Bay Car Show

We spent last Sunday in Monterey, CA at the Ink by the Bay tattoo convention & car show hosted by Oldies Car Club. The weather was as nice as it gets, the tattoo machines were going all day, the music was playing all day and of course some really nice cars filled the fairground lawn from all over the Monterey area and beyond. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

San Jose Throwback Cruise

This past Saturday the low riders came out in numbers to cruise Santa Clara St. in San Jose, CA for the “Throwback Cruise.” We love to see cars cruising up and down the street more than seeing them at a car show. Something about being in their natural environment just makes sense.

Deadend Magazine Feature - Jeff Cecilio's 1953 Chevy

In our opinion style is the most important thing when building a custom car. The profile, stance, paint, wheel and tire combo, and small details all make a car look good if they all work well together. This 53 chevy owned by our friend Jeff was styled in part by the team at Starlite Rod and Custom in Southern California. Everything from the great color choices to the floating grill and heavy chop all give the car a unique look. A lot of 53/54 Chevys have been customized in the past but this one sure does stand out.

Los Angeles Cruise Night | Back to the Sixth 2019

We were able to sneak away from the Grand National Roadster Show for a little while to hit up the “Back to the Sixth” cruise night in Downtown Los Angeles. It’s always a good time catching cars cruising the streets of L.A. especially if the Los Angeles Cruise Night committee puts it together.

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.

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!

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.
