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.

Lone Star Round Up 2019

Another 3,300 mile road trip from Salinas, CA to Austin in the books. Every April for the last 13 years we’ve made the trip (twice we flew if we’re being honest) to the Lone Star Round Up and every year is a memorable one. This year’s show was memorable for many reasons. First off we had the pleasure of designing the official show artwork. (Thanks again Kontinentals for the opportunity) Second, the weather (per usual) surprised us (we never learn) Third, seeing our friends we only see in Texas is always fun. Lastly, we always seem to meet new people. People who seem to follow Deadend via social media and are excited to stop by the booth and chat.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 03/13/19

This past weekend we headed down to Southern California.

Our first stop was Santa Barbara for the Customs by the Sea. We had a good time shooting at the nice arrangement of some nice customs from all over.

Sunday we headed to Broadway in Compton to check out the weekly Sunday cruise. It’s actually more than a cruise it’s like an all day block party. Doesn’t get much more “real” or “street” than Broadway on Sundays.

After hanging out on Broadway for a while we headed to shoot Jack Fields’ custom 1954 Chevy. Jack has been building this 54 Chevy for many years. It just wasn’t his at first. It started life as a customer’s car and Jack quickly fell in love with the build. As soon as he had the chance he scooped it up and put more of his own feel to the car. The chopped top, mild shave and custom interior were all capped off with unique seaweed flames. Jack has enjoyed his car from the beginning (building it) to driving the car to the Lone Star Round Up in Austin, TX. We’re glad we had a chance to snap some photos of it.

Grand National Roadster Show 2019

The show nicknamed the “Grand Daddy of Them All!” lives up to the hype year after year. Nine buildings filled with everything from patina’d traditional customs to over the top high end hot rods competing for the most prestigious award a roadster can receive, there is literally something for every car lover to see. Three days is barely enough to see it all. Here are some of the photos we captured.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

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.
