Deadend Magazine Feature - Jeff Cecilio's 1953 Chevy

In our opinion style is the most important thing when building a custom car. The profile, stance, paint, wheel and tire combo, and small details all make a car look good if they all work well together. This 53 chevy owned by our friend Jeff was styled in part by the team at Starlite Rod and Custom in Southern California. Everything from the great color choices to the floating grill and heavy chop all give the car a unique look. A lot of 53/54 Chevys have been customized in the past but this one sure does stand out.

Lone Star Round Up 2019

Another 3,300 mile road trip from Salinas, CA to Austin in the books. Every April for the last 13 years we’ve made the trip (twice we flew if we’re being honest) to the Lone Star Round Up and every year is a memorable one. This year’s show was memorable for many reasons. First off we had the pleasure of designing the official show artwork. (Thanks again Kontinentals for the opportunity) Second, the weather (per usual) surprised us (we never learn) Third, seeing our friends we only see in Texas is always fun. Lastly, we always seem to meet new people. People who seem to follow Deadend via social media and are excited to stop by the booth and chat.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!

Sunday we headed to Broadway in Compton to check out the weekly Sunday cruise. It’s actually more than a cruise it’s like an all day block party. Doesn’t get much more “real” or “street” than Broadway on Sundays.

After hanging out on Broadway for a while we headed to shoot Jack Fields’ custom 1954 Chevy. Jack has been building this 54 Chevy for many years. It just wasn’t his at first. It started life as a customer’s car and Jack quickly fell in love with the build. As soon as he had the chance he scooped it up and put more of his own feel to the car. The chopped top, mild shave and custom interior were all capped off with unique seaweed flames. Jack has enjoyed his car from the beginning (building it) to driving the car to the Lone Star Round Up in Austin, TX. We’re glad we had a chance to snap some photos of it.

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!
