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.

Saturday we headed to the Ventura County Fairgrounds for the Ventura Nationals. The kustom car, hot rod and bike show features some of the best from all around California and beyond. We had a great time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

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.
