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.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Chicano Park & Pomona Swapmeet

Another busy weekend in the books. Once again we headed down to Southern California. Besides the two events you see here, Chicano Park Day and Pomona Swapmeet, we also shot 3 cars and 2 models (which we'll post tomorrow)

We've been attending the Chicano Park Day celebration since 2006 and haven't missed one since. This year was going to be no different. Chicano Park Day is much more than a car show. The entire Chicano Park area and beyond is filled with smiling faces enjoying cars, music, food, art and much more. As you can see we go for the cars, but stay for the amazing food and refreshments.

The murals compliment the classic cars perfectly.

Can't thank everyone who showed up to support us at our Deadend Magazine Store grand opening! We had over 200 people and who knows how many classic cars take over Monterey St. We are forever grateful! As you can assume we were all busy and didn't take too many photos. (we know there were many photographers there shooting so we hope to share those with you soon) Here are a few shots we did manage to capture.

Some of our friends showed up hours before we officially opened to grab prime parking.

Throwback - Donnie Baird's 1963 Olds

Hard to believe these day but back in 2007 when Donnie Baird debuted his 1963 Olds not too many were painting lace roofs and panels on their customs (outside of the low rider world). Donnie's Olds was a breath of fresh air in a time when many were trying to be different just to be different. The simple yet beautiful painted body with a lace & paneled roof pays great tribute to the bellflower days. Enjoy these shots we took back in early 2007.
