Our second stop was the Us Versus Them "Ramble On The Ranch" show in Temecula, CA. This was the first time we attended the Ramble On show. We are glad we did. The show was filled with good cars, good people and good music in a cool intimate setting. If you've never been we suggest you make it next year.

Next we headed to the coast to shoot Jimmy "Gimmi" Chadwick's beautiful mild custom Chevy. Gimmi's Chevy first caught our eyes at the Santa Maria Cruisin' Nationals. We saw it, loved it, and knew we had to shoot it soon.

Johnny Brock brought out his equally as clean 54. So we asked him to park it with Gimmi's car and let us snap a few photos.

After the shoot we headed to City of Industry to the Cadillac Fest. Outside the lot was filled with cool Cadillacs from all walks of life stocks, customs, and most of all low riders. Inside the building there was an amazing display of model cars & low rider bikes. Here are some of the photos we captured.

Armando Flores was kind enough to make sure Deadend Magazine was represented in the Whittier Blvd. model car display.

Before heading home we shot Michael Longonisa's super clean 1966 Cadillac. These Cadillacs look good from the factory but what Michael and has done has taken this Caddy to a whole other level. An extremely nice pain job (and color), the right wheels, stance and smoothed body sure make a big difference. Doesn't get much cleaner than this.

Mild Customs in Texas

After the Lone Star Round Up we like to shoot a few cars. This year was no different.

We already knew we wanted to shoot "Flat Top" Bob & Linda Owens' (from Owens Salvage) recently refreshed 1961 Buick but had no idea that Flat Top Bob would be rolling with Ryno's most recent build, a smooth 1962 Cadillac. We think the 2 compliment each other quite well, especially with the recent smooth Mike Howell paint jobs.
