We kicked off Labor Day weekend in downtown Ventura, CA for the Ventura Nationals' Pre Party & Art Show. It's always a good time and gives you a great preview of what's to come at the Ventura Nationals the next day.

Sunday we headed to Murrieta & Temecula to shoot Jesse Martinez' 1953 Chevy. The Chevy first caught our eye at the Pomona Swapmeet last year. The color is what initially attracted us to the car. Last month we seen it again at the Bombs Super Show and knew we should snap some pics of the car. Jesse knows he has a few more things to finish up the car and has help from his daughter Avery Martinez along the way but continues to enjoy driving the car while building it.

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 Part 1 of 2 - 09-06-16

Hope ya'll had a great Labor Day weekend. I know we did. We started our weekend like we have the last 10+ years, in Ventura, CA for the Ventura Nationals. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth. The wind blew our booth around pretty good but we still had a great time. As you can see below there were plenty of nice cars in attendance.

After the Ventura Nationals and a good meal we headed south to catch some cruising on Whittier Blvd. The boulevard was packed with Low Riders and Customs. It took us over an hour to cruise a few blocks. Good times! 

We will upload more photos tomorrow.
