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.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 02/21/19

This weekend we headed down to Southern California for a couple photo shoots.

A couple years ago Scott Crothers and his wife drove his 1940 Chevy pick-up from Marina Del Rey, CA to our car show the Custom Capital (that’s over 300 miles in the middle of summer) As soon as he pulled up to the Deadend Magazine store we noticed it and knew we’d shoot it one day. We just didn’t know it would take us so long. We’re glad we finally did and this time instead of the hot summer heat Scott had to drive about an hour in the blistering cold & short rain fall.

The pick-up started it’s custom life at Masterson Kustoms and was finished at Craftmaster Custom in Lynwood, CA. The 1968 327 and 700r4 keep the Chevy on the road but what really makes the little truck stand out is all the custom touches. Like the 4” channel over the frame, 4 point coil over suspension (that’s right no airbags), suicide doors and 1940 Merc rear bumper with custom bumper guards and taillights. If everything goes well Scott plans to drive the pick-up back up to this year’s Custom Capital. We hope to see you here!

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - 01/22/18

This weekend we shot Adam Gonzalez' fresh 65 Buick Riviera. Adam is a local homie who has been building low riders since he was in high school. He owns a candy painted 1966 Impala, a laid out 1963 Chevy wagon and is also building a convertible 1959 Chevy Impala. He decided to go the more traditional custom route with his Riviera. He painted it candy and had Eddie Padilla do patterns on the roof, then did the air ride and put Supremes with wide white walls. We were lucky enough to be the first to shoot this beautiful ride. We hope to see it all the local car events or just cruising the streets.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show

This past weekend we made our way back to Yokohama Japan for the Mooneyes' Hot Rod Custom Show. You've probably heard from many people that this is THE show to go to. You heard right. This show is hard to put into words. If you've never gone you need to do yourself a favor and get yourself to Yokohama the first weekend of December one year. Arigato to everyone who stopped by the booth!

Congrats to our good friend Coby for having his Econoline 'Van Go' as a special guest.

For the first time Deadend Magazine was given the opportunity to choose a car to give an award to. We picked Cholo's Custom's killer 1954 Chevy ' Sphinx' you can see why. Although Sphinx is clean enough to be a show car. Cholo drove this Chevy 4 hours (each way) to the show! Respect.

Deadend Magazine Late Weekend Report - 10/18/17

Sunday morning we met up with Victor Luna (Style Kings) to shoot his mild custom 1951 Mercury in Fremont, CA. Vic picked up this beautiful Mercury not to long ago from a local car collector who built it back in the 1980's. So far Vic has only made minor changes to the car. The biggest being adding hydraulic suspension and changing the hubcaps, which really changed the profile of the car.
