San Francisco King of the Streets 2019 | Car Show

San Francisco King of the Streets has arguably become the best low rider event in Northern California. Cars from the Bay Area, Central California, Southern California, Nevada & beyond showed up to fill the City College of San Francisco’s huge parking lot. King of the Streets is an experience like no other. From the car show, the hop, the weather, the cruise, everything about the event is unique. The San Francisco Low Rider Council go above and beyond when hosting this event. If for whatever you have yet to attend King of the Streets mark it on your calendar now. Believe us you’ll have a great time. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Photos from the cruise on Mission coming soon..

Westend Car Club x Gooseneck Magazine Cruise Night

Seems like recently the low rider community in San Jose has come out in strong and in large numbers. We’re really excited about it. The last 3 cruise nights we’ve been to in San Jo have brought back memories of “the old days.” So we were really happy to see Westend Car Club and Gooseneck Magazine (both San Jose natives) come together at Gyspy Rose Salon to host their own cruise night. We had a great time. We hope the low riders in San Jose keep cruisin!

6th annual Custom Capital

This past weekend we hosted the 6th annual Custom Capital at Manzanita Park in Prunedale, CA. To say we had a good time is an understatement. Seems like every year the show keeps getting better & bigger. Customs, hot rods, and low riders came from all over California. Thanks to everyone who brought a car, our sponsors, vendors, our family & friends and anyone who continued to support what we do.

Ink at the Bay Car Show

We spent last Sunday in Monterey, CA at the Ink by the Bay tattoo convention & car show hosted by Oldies Car Club. The weather was as nice as it gets, the tattoo machines were going all day, the music was playing all day and of course some really nice cars filled the fairground lawn from all over the Monterey area and beyond. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

San Jose Throwback Cruise

This past Saturday the low riders came out in numbers to cruise Santa Clara St. in San Jose, CA for the “Throwback Cruise.” We love to see cars cruising up and down the street more than seeing them at a car show. Something about being in their natural environment just makes sense.

Santa Maria West Coast Cruising Nationals 2019 (Car Show)

Year after year some of the best custom cars from across the country show up at the Santa Maria Fairplex on Memorial weekend for the West Coast Kustoms’ Cruisin Nationals. The crazy California weather we’ve been having only put a damper on Sunday’s activities but Saturday there were a lot of nice rides to see all across the lawn. Everything from back yards builds to full show cars. Here are a few photos we captured. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Enjoy!

Santa Maria West Coast Cruisin' Nationals 2019 (Friday Night Cruise)

This day and age there is no shortage or car shows, especially here in California. Some of them like the West Coast Kustoms Cruising Nationals have been around for a long time and have built a legacy for hosting some of the best custom cars in the world. The absolute coolest part of this event is the Friday night cruise. We have always said that classic cars look best in motion, especially lead sleds and chop tops. If you didn’t make the trip to Santa Maria here are a few of the cars that cruised Broadway.

Enjoy!
