Been a busy week so here's a late weekend report. However we think it's worth the wait.

We were finally able to make it to the Bombs Magazine Bombs Super Show this year. Glad we did. The Anaheim Convention Center was filled with some of the best Bombs from all over the country.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth!

Here's our coverage from 'Cinco de Mayo' weekend. We covered both Northern California & Southern California.

Our first stop was Hillview Park in San Jose, CA. We have been going to San Jose for Cinco de Mayo cruising for many years. It's good to see the car community still goes out to cruise.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 01/16/18

We started the weekend shooting a very cool local Chevy pick-up owned by Santiago. We literally saw Santiago cruise by the Deadend Magazine store one day and knew we had to shoot the pick-up. We're glad finally had the chance to snaps some pics of it. The pick-up is as clean in person as it looks in pics. Enjoy.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 07/18/17

Another busy weekend in the books. This past Friday we headed to Southern California, our first stop was Santa Clarita, CA to shoot a mild custom Ford Thunderbird recently built by the fellas at Starlite Rod & Kustom. As you can see there are many details on this Bird. Thanks to Edgar & Frank for taking a time of their busy day, we really appreciate it boys.

The paint job really compliments the bodylines of the car.

After shooting with Nana we headed to West Covina to shoot Johnny Urias' custom Mercury. This beautiful 50 Merc was customized by Dick Dean & his son. You can see that the Merc has been chopped, channeled and has a lot of other custom touches from front to back that make it unique.

As you can tell Junichi put a lot of time & effort on this radical custom Ford. You can look at the car from every angle and still miss details. Junichi left no area of the car untouched. Chuck has owned and cared for "RodRiguez" for over a decade.
