Mooneyes X-Mas Party 2018

Every second weekend of December the Mooneyes crew put together a great event at Irwndale Speedway. For most this is the closing automotive event of the year. What a great event to close the year with. The show area is jam packed with all different types of cars from all over California. Drag racers light up the track all afternoon long and the vendor area brings out some great brands for people to do some last minute Christmas shopping. For the first time in 7 years we were one of those brands.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth!

Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show 2018

This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending and vending at the Mooneyes Custom Hot Rod Show in Yokohama Japan. There aren’t many events like the world renowned annual “Yokohama” show. People from all across the world make the trek to check out the colorful Japanese low riders, crazy customs, and invited guests from all over the globe. There really is no other event like it. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Mooneyes X-Mas Party 2017

This weekend we headed back down to Southern California for what can potentially be the last Mooneyes X-Mas Party. Yep, that's right. They say it will definitely be the last one held at Irwindale Speedway. The speedway will be torn down soon. Leaving behind many years of memories. We had to make it down just in case it is the last Party all together. Many people had the same idea. Irwindale Speedway was packed! We didn't get to see all the cars. We did manage to see many of our friends. It was good while it lasted. We'll see you at the next one if there is one.

First car we saw in the general admission parking lot. Gave us a good preview of what we would see all day.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show

This past weekend we made our way back to Yokohama Japan for the Mooneyes' Hot Rod Custom Show. You've probably heard from many people that this is THE show to go to. You heard right. This show is hard to put into words. If you've never gone you need to do yourself a favor and get yourself to Yokohama the first weekend of December one year. Arigato to everyone who stopped by the booth!

Congrats to our good friend Coby for having his Econoline 'Van Go' as a special guest.

For the first time Deadend Magazine was given the opportunity to choose a car to give an award to. We picked Cholo's Custom's killer 1954 Chevy ' Sphinx' you can see why. Although Sphinx is clean enough to be a show car. Cholo drove this Chevy 4 hours (each way) to the show! Respect.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 12/12/16

We headed to Southern California this past weekend to attend the Mooneyes X-Mas Party in Irwindale, CA. The Irwindale Speedway parking lot is always filled to the brim with all kinds of cars. To many the X-Mas party marks the last car event of the year (not to us, we're not done yet) so it's good to talk to friends right before the holidays & end of the year. Here are a few shots we captured.

On the way back North we stopped by Chopperfest in Ventura, CA.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 05/16/16

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.
