The Legacy Show

Tribal Gear celebrated 30 years by hosting the Legacy Show at the Broadway Pier in San Diego, CA. Bobby Ruiz founder of Tribal Gear always host great events, and this years Legacy was one for the books. Nothing but top quality low riders and custom cars in a great setting surrounded by the San Diego city scape and the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There was a lot to see all in one place, cars, good vendors, great food, good music, good drinks, skate boarding exhibit and an amazing art exhibit. People from all over the world attended and celebrated a part of west coast history.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 04/24/18

There are car shows then there is Chicano Park Day... Every April Chicano Park in San Diego is filled with cultural acts, food, vendors, entertainment, and of course cars. We enjoy all of the above but make it down every year for the cars. San Diego never disappoints. There's always an abundance of nice cars all over the Logan Heights area. Hope you enjoy our coverage.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 10/26/17

It's been a busy week at the Deadend Magazine headquarters. The week followed an equally busy weekend. We headed to Southern California for a few shoots and a couple events.
Our first stop was National City to shoot James Thomson's latest purchase, a custom painted 1964 Chevy wagon. The wagon was built, painted (and owned) by Manuel Cisneros before James got his hands on it.

Sunday Morning we headed to Riverside, CA to meet up with the fellas from Jimenez Brothers to shoot a 1938 Chevrolet Cabriolet. The owner Pelon Arzola goes to extreme measures to keep his '38 looking clean. One of the cleanest cars we've ever shot.

We've been trying to shoot Phillip Gabriel's Lincoln for a few months and glad we were finally able to. These days it's getting harder to build a mild custom and really stand out. We believe Phillip achieved this with his Lincoln and all it took was a killer color, the right stance and wheels.

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.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 02/27/17

This past weekend we headed down to San Diego, CA to check out the Big 3 Swapmeet for the first time. The Big 3 lived up to it's reputation and ur expectations. Many of our friends from all over the state kept saying they were finding deals throughout the weekend. We snapped a few shots of some of the cool cars we seen while walking though the endless isles. 

After a few hours of catching up with friends and walking the isles we headed to downtown Los Angeles to the Teen Angel exhibit & book release. We didn't capture many photos but here are a couple.

Thanks for looking.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 01/16/17 (1 of 2)

The rain kept us from doing much last weekend so we made up for it this weekend. 

We started out the weekend shooting Ella at RenoBilt's shop in Madera, CA with Reno's cool custom Ford pick-up.

Our second stop was in Chula Vista, CA to shoot Melin's 36 Chevy. We've been wanting to shoot this bomb since we first laid eyes on it a few years ago. Glad we finally caught up with Melin and his beautiful bomb.

Then we headed a few miles north to San Diego, CA to shoot Jess at The Lower Left (aka Tribal Gear headquarters) with Bobby's 59 Impala.

Sunday we headed to Pomona, CA for the Pomona Swapmeet & a photo shoot.

Come back tomorrow for the photos!
