Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 03/09/18

We had a late start to our weekend. We started it Sunday morning at the Pomona Swapmeet at the Pomona Fairplex. As you can see from the photos we took at the swapmeet there are very many nice rides at the car corral. We spent so much time we practically missed the many vendor rows. See you at the next one.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 01/29/18

"The Grand daddy of them all!" The first "big" show of the year. The Grand National Roadster Show. Always lives up to the hype.  This year was no exception. Some of the biggest names in the traditional custom & hot rod scene choose to debut their latest builds the last weekend of January at the Pomona Fairplex. Three days is just enough to see most of the cars that pack the 10 building at the Fairplex. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth!

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.

First and foremost we'd like to thank everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth this past weekend at the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, CA. We really enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones. Holding down the booth and walking around capturing photos takes a toll on us but it is definitely worth it!

As you can see from our (short) coverage there was a lot to see and admire at the "Grand Daddy Of Them All."

We hit a couple cruise nights while we were down in Southern California which we will post soon.
