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.

Santa Maria West Coast Cruisin' Nationals

We posted the Santa Maria Friday night cruise earlier this week. We finally got around to posting the coverage from Saturday & Sunday at the fairgrounds. It's always fun to walk around the fairgrounds both days and see homebuilt baremetal customs & hot rods parked among professionally built shiny customs throughout the fairgrounds. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

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 - J&V's Garage Shindig

Once again we co-hosted J&V'S Garage Shindig this past weekend in Chula Vista, CA. Joe at J&V has been a staple car culture in the San Diego area for over 30 years so the locals come out to show support. As you can tell there was a lot of customs, low riders and hot rods. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Sunday we met up with Wade Christiansen in Buena Park, CA to shoot his 1950 Plymouth Suburban. Not too often we see a cool Plymouth Suburban. Wade has had his Suburban for many years. When it came time to build it he took it to Aaron Valenica (from Lost Angels Children Project) The roof was laid out by Mat Egan.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 10/26/17

It's been a busy week at the Deadend Magazine headquarters. The week followed an equally busy weekend. We headed to Southern California for a few shoots and a couple events.
Our first stop was National City to shoot James Thomson's latest purchase, a custom painted 1964 Chevy wagon. The wagon was built, painted (and owned) by Manuel Cisneros before James got his hands on it.

Have you ever seen a Hudson like this one?

Sunday Morning we headed to Riverside, CA to meet up with the fellas from Jimenez Brothers to shoot a 1938 Chevrolet Cabriolet. The owner Pelon Arzola goes to extreme measures to keep his '38 looking clean. One of the cleanest cars we've ever shot.

We've been trying to shoot Phillip Gabriel's Lincoln for a few months and glad we were finally able to. These days it's getting harder to build a mild custom and really stand out. We believe Phillip achieved this with his Lincoln and all it took was a killer color, the right stance and wheels.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 09/18/17

Saturday morning we headed to Antioch, CA to vend and shoot at Billetproof. We've been attending Billetproof for over 10 years and have been vending almost as many. We always have a good time and look forward to seeing our friends from all over the bay area and their cars. This year we had a great time once again. As you can see there were many nice customs, hot rods and even low riders. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.
