4th annual Deadend Backpack Drive

One of the most fun, rewarding, and humbling events we host is our annual Deadend Backpack Drive. Here’s how it goes down. We ask our supporters to come in to the Deadend Magazine store with a new backpack and we trade for new t-shirt then we turn around and donate the backpacks to Sherwood Elementary School in Salinas. This year we collected over 300 backpacks! Thanks to everyone who participated! Here are the photos from the best part of the whole thing. Delivering the backpacks and watching the kids smile as they get a free backpack, check out some cool cars and this year we added a free popsicle (thanks to Big Sweets ice cream truck)

We can’t thank everyone who helped out enough!

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 08/30/18

Someone just asked me if we had a "car show season" I answered, "Nope." every weekend we seem to be busy all year round.

This past weekend was the same. We kicked off our weekend  by delivering the backpacks ya'll donated to the kids at Sherwood Elementary School on Friday afternoon. This marks our 3rd annual Deadend Backpack Drive and it is very cool to watch the students pick a backpack and get excited about the cars we drive out to their school. Thanks again to everyone who donated!

Saturday we started the day at the Salinas PAL car show in Salinas, CA. The show has turned into a cool show that takes over Oldtown Salinas. We're glad to be a small part of it.

After the PAL show we got together with some friends to cruise from Salinas to Monterey. This was the 3rd time and it's always a blast to see classic cars cruising through Monterey around a bunch of exotics and high end cars.

Although the Pebble Beach Concours Delegance doesn't necessarily fit the bill of car shows we attend it is very fun & exciting to walk around some of the nicest cars on earth. The details on these cars are very inspiring to be around.
