Our second stop was the Us Versus Them "Ramble On The Ranch" show in Temecula, CA. This was the first time we attended the Ramble On show. We are glad we did. The show was filled with good cars, good people and good music in a cool intimate setting. If you've never been we suggest you make it next year.

This cool chopped & sectioned Merc parked right in front of the Deadend Magazine booth. Thanks to all who stopped by the booth.

Next we headed to the coast to shoot Jimmy "Gimmi" Chadwick's beautiful mild custom Chevy. Gimmi's Chevy first caught our eyes at the Santa Maria Cruisin' Nationals. We saw it, loved it, and knew we had to shoot it soon.

After the shoot we headed to City of Industry to the Cadillac Fest. Outside the lot was filled with cool Cadillacs from all walks of life stocks, customs, and most of all low riders. Inside the building there was an amazing display of model cars & low rider bikes. Here are some of the photos we captured.

Armando Flores was kind enough to make sure Deadend Magazine was represented in the Whittier Blvd. model car display.

Before heading home we shot Michael Longonisa's super clean 1966 Cadillac. These Cadillacs look good from the factory but what Michael and has done has taken this Caddy to a whole other level. An extremely nice pain job (and color), the right wheels, stance and smoothed body sure make a big difference. Doesn't get much cleaner than this.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - First weekend of 2017 (1 of 2)

Just when we thought JV's Shindig was the last event we would attend we decided last minute to go check out some cruising on Hollywood Blvd. Good thing we did it was very cool to see real riders in the pouring rain.

hollywood-01.jpg

Our first stop in 2017 was Elysian Park in Los Angeles, CA. The weather was perfect for cars to be cruising the park all day long. 

Our second stop was Montebello Park on Whittier Blvd.

We'll post more shots from Oxnard, CA, Japan & Crenshaw tomorrow.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 12/19/16

This weekend we co-hosted the annual JV's Garage Shindig in Chula Vista, CA. Joe from JV's Garage has become family and we always enjoy co-hosting the event. Some of the coolest cars from the San Diego & Los Angeles area come out to enjoy what is usually our last automotive event of the year. If you've never been you should put it on your to-do list next year. Here are some photos we captured. Enjoy..

After the Shindig we headed to East Los Angeles for the Whittier Blvd cruise night. Whittier Blvd is always a good time.

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.
