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.

Fit Kustom Tokyo Japan

El Classico is a shop based in Tokyo Japan, better know by their car club name "Fit Kustoms". They build top notch American custom cars. One of their most notable builds is the candy red 1957 Chevy Nomad know as "Acid 57". We visited the shop on our latest trip to Japan. We have been there in the past but we are still blown away every time we see the latest projects and their parts collection.

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.

The Road to Custom Hill Reunion 2018 w/Pharaohs Car Club

We have been fortunate enough to travel to Japan numerous times, and every time is a different and great experience. The best part of being in Japan is making memories with old and new friends, having the opportunity to become friends with the people we meet and interact with.

A couple of weeks ago we went back to Japan to attend the Custom Hill car show, we really didn’t know much about the event but we had heard good things about it. We were lucky enough to ride from Nagoya to the show area with our homies from Pharaohs Car Club and a couple of rides from Primera Car Club. Junichi and the rest of the crew let us ride with them in their bad ass low riders. It took us about five hours with a couple of stops in between. I noticed that every car in the caravan was riding on bias ply 5.20 tires and hydraulics, and a half of them had candy paint. It was impressive to see that they were willing to drive so far in such traditional cars even driving thru some rain. It was a great experience and we hope to do it again next time we visit Japan.

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!

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...
