Noble Fabrication "Endless Summer" & Photo shoot with Genesis

For the last few years Noble Fabrication has hosted “Endless Summer” cruise-in the Sunday after the Ventura Nationals. We haven’t had a chance to make it in years, but always heard good things about the event. We made it a point not to miss it this year. We’re glad we made it! It’s a nice event to hang out and talk about how awesome Ventura Nationals was at Matt’s cool shop. Check out some of the photos we captured.

Ventura Nationals 2019

Ventura Nationals weekend kicks off Friday night in downtown Ventura with an art show and cruise in. The art on display and the bands playing music are always good, but the best part of the pre party is watching all the cars cruise on Main St. And the icing on the cake for Friday night is watching Aaron from the Lost Angels Children’s Project pull up in the car that will be given away Saturday at the end of the show.

The car show continues to be one of the best of the year when it comes to traditional custom cars. This year the weather was perfect, the fog rolled in thick early on but eventually cleared up and the sun was out the rest of the day. Aside from cool cars and great vendors Ventura Nationals is also know for always having great live music. If you have not attended recently we highly recommend you don’t miss it next year.

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.

We finally had a chance to shoot Mike Montes' 51 Cadillac. In case you're unfamiliar Mike is the blessed individual that won this beautiful mild custom that was built by Lost Angels Children's Project at last year's Ventura Nationals. For more info visit www.lostangelscp.org

Sunday we headed to Concord, CA to shoot a few of the cars the fellas at East Bay Speed & Custom have at their shop at the moment. The East Bay crew have been pumping out some amazing customs & hot rods the last few years.

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.
