Tavares Family Super Show

Tavares Family brought a Lowrider Magazine sanctioned car show to Salinas, CA (our hometown) and it was a huge success. The Salinas Airport was filled from fence to fence with some amazing cars, motorcycles and bikes from all over the states. If that wasn’t enough to have a good time the stage had great acts all day. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 01/22/18

This weekend we shot Adam Gonzalez' fresh 65 Buick Riviera. Adam is a local homie who has been building low riders since he was in high school. He owns a candy painted 1966 Impala, a laid out 1963 Chevy wagon and is also building a convertible 1959 Chevy Impala. He decided to go the more traditional custom route with his Riviera. He painted it candy and had Eddie Padilla do patterns on the roof, then did the air ride and put Supremes with wide white walls. We were lucky enough to be the first to shoot this beautiful ride. We hope to see it all the local car events or just cruising the streets.

Deadend Magazine in San Francisco Chronicle

The good folks at the San Francisco Chronicle (Bay area news outlet) interviewed us about places to visit in our hometown Salinas, CA.

The article mentions the Deadend Magazine store and some of our local favorite local places.

“The brothers get to indulge their obsession for classic cars, traveling to and covering 70 events a year, hosting their own 300-vehicle Custom Capitol gathering in Prunedale’s Manzanita Park and doing two Burrito Bike Ride benefits a year. But they also get to honor their dad’s hobby and that desire to have a purpose.”
